This isn't just a bad Ashton Kutcher film, it's not good for numerous reasons and Kutcher really isn't too high on that list.
That's commentary on how poorly this story translates to the big screen. And with the co-writers also serving as co-directors, there's no excuse for that to happen.
I don't see how this movie can possibly get more than four stars, but I'm here to give it every bit of all of those stars -- one for each of the stalwarts in this movie: Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray and Ted Knight.
Yes, Knight. He is superb in Caddyshack. He makes it work. And nobody else could have done it any better.
Mickey Rourke finally caught a big break by landing this role.
Rourke gives "The Wrestler" a genuine feel -- from the muscles on top of muscles to the trips to the tanning booth.
Clint Eastwood demonstrates a tenderness that is palpable in the movies he directs. Hilary Swank gives a once-in-a-lifetime performance and Morgan Freeman, whose silky voice has led us down so many cinematic paths, is here again to guide us along the way.
I want to like it, but Mel Brooks' satire about Western movies ran its course a long time ago.
If you've never seen it, I would still recommend a viewing. It may not be funny anymore, but it really was pretty funny in 1974. Call it a "history of your grandparents' childhood" assignment.
