I am a wrestling fan, but when I first saw the trailer to this movie it looked cheesy and I was SO disappointed. Let me assure you the trailers do this movie no justice...it was absolutely GUT-BUSTING!! I've never laughed so hard at a movie in theater before, there were also many people there enjoying the movie who obviously were not wrestling fans. For true fans though the movie is even more funny because of all the inside jabs at the business. Noticeably "Sinclair" as some kind of weird Vince McMahon/ Eric Bischoff mix, Sal bears remarkable resemblance to the great Stu Hart and his wrestling school, and many more. The "main event" was incredibly exciting, the best wrestling match any fan will ever see. This film is must see for fans and non-fans alike. 9 out of 10.
