Aging wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson is long past his prime but still ready and rarin' to go on the pro-wrestling circuit. After a particularly brutal beating, however, Randy hangs up his tights, pursues a serious relationship with a long-in-the-tooth stripper, and tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter. But he can't resist the lure of the ring and readies himself for a comeback.
Authors Note: This is my first ever movie review, guys. I write video-game reviews for my school paper, and I watch a ton of movies, so I figure I should find out how to write reviews of them. I'm sur...
The best part of the script was that Randy "The Ram" is such a flawed character, he's single, broke, lives in a crap trailer, has hearing problems, has heart problems, and his daughter hates him, but he's so likable.
