A crowd-pleasing comedy from writer-director Stephen Merchant that operates by rather basic formula but has enough charms to consistently entertain even when you know exactly what's going to happen next.
Fighting With My Family is a rousing crowd-pleaser, guaranteed to make you smile, at least once. You may even leap out of your seat and whoop, if such undignified public displays are your kind of thing.
Florence Pugh embodies her character flawlessly, to the point where you forget that she's not actually Paige and when she finally hoists up the belt she always dreamed of winning, she'll have you cheering in your seat.
Fighting With My Family hews closely to the tried-and-true "underdog sports drama" blueprint, but director Stephen Merchant (working from his own screenplay) elevates the material by infusing it with plenty of wit and humor.
