Brian Robbins directs this wrestling comedy from Steven Brill’s script. Two fans (David Arquette and Scott Caan) travel to the WCW headquarters to help restore their favorite wrestler (Oliver Platt) to the championship. Rose McGowan, Chris Owens, Joe Pantoliano and Martin Landau also star.
Capsule Review: You know a movie about professional wrestling is likely to be rather stupid going in…and Ready to Rumble lives down to all those expectations. Arquette and Caan aren’t a very funny comic duo, and even some talented supporting actors (Platt, Landau and Pantoliano) can’t make sense of this movie. Heck, it’s not even worth it to watch the wrestling cameos. This is one movie that deserves to be pile-driven.
