About the Movie

When two young wrestling fanatics watch their idol suffer a humiliating defeat, they travel to WCW headquarters in Atlanta in the hopes of revitalizing his career. However, they soon discover he isn't the man they've come to worship. This movie is a hilarious look at the world of professional wrestling -- both in and out of the ring -- featuring an ensemble cast that includes David Arquette ("Eight Legged Freaks," "See Spot Run"), Scott Caan ("Ocean's Eleven," "American Outlaws"), Oliver Platt (TV's "The West Wing," "Three to Tango"), Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Martin Landau ("The Majestic," "Ed Wood"), Rose McGowan (TV's "Charmed," "Monkeybone"), and a host of WCW superstars, including Bill Goldberg and the Nitro Girls.

A Classic for WCW Fans

If you were ever a fan of WCW: Watch this Movie! I'm not saying buy it (although after renting it that's probably what you'll wind up doing) but watch it. This movie made me a fan of David Arquette. Even if your not a fan of WCW, you probably will still like it because it's pretty funny, although not as much as if you were a fan of the sport.

The Best Of Its Kind

This movie is really a great movie,and it keeps you laughing the entire hour and fourty six minutes. Its a fun movie but to some it might be boring. I would reccommend you rent it first if your planning on buying it.

This is a really good and funny movie!!!

I'm buying this! Not only is it funny , but it's a heart touching movie about believing in yourself and achieving the impossible!
