  • Likable performances from its young cast and a better-than-average script add spark to this formulaic fairy tale and make the wrestling mania watchable. show more

  • If you're expecting an experience approximately as dumb, badly acted, and childish as a pro wrestling match, you'll be pleasantly surprised. show more

  • It's a truly strange coupling of mooning romanticism and rank stupidity that fairly screams, "Teenage America, we love your money!" show more
