  • The whole enterprise smacks of a pilot for something that might be called "Celebrity Wrestler Rehab."

  • It's also purely a heartbreaking look at what alcoholism can do to a person mentally; constantly telling themselves they were not a good enough human being to deserve the love of friends and family around them

  • Jake The Man makes for pure documentary gold, with his salty turns of phrase, busted heart, and that tiny sliver of hope which he clings to like a boa constrictor even in his darkest hours.

  • Doesn't reinvent the wheel, but makes accessible and inspiring the real story of a man in progress, working toward rehabilitation. The heartfelt effort and brotherhood of the film's charismatic wrestling superstar subjects are its true brilliance.
