It's a Good Movie!
This movie was unexpectedly heartfelt despite its seemingly silly premise. When I first heard of it, I clocked it as a broad comedy romp through the wacky world of pro-wrestling, with not much depth. I was way off. It was an emotionally compelling, earnest, well-written, well-directed family drama with a comedy twist.
The performances were on point, with the entire cast digging deep to deliver on the emotional beats. It was also super funny!
Well done to Stephen Merchant! Definitely worth a watch!
