A work of deviant genius, a hilarious hog wallow in juvenile mindlessness with a gentle spirit of self-mockery and a heart of gold.

Toilet-humor farce proud of its own crudeness.

Unless wrestlers playing wrestlers is your cup of tea, better plan on saving the pennies for the WWF's next pay-per-view special instead.

Likable performances from its young cast and a better-than-average script add spark to this formulaic fairy tale and make the wrestling mania watchable.

Moronic and insulting.

Platt is a good comic actor and I have liked him in a lot of movies, but here he is not well-used.
