Ready to Rumble

( 1 )

Overview

The DVD of the lunk-headed wrestling comedy Ready to Rumble plays to the film's two strengths: an obsessive knowledge of WCW Monday Nitro antics and goofus, gross-out humor. The movie itself looks and sounds as good as it can, with an anamorphic, widescreen transfer and Dolby 5.1 Audio, but the extra features make seeing Ready to Rumble on DVD more entertaining than watching it in the theater.

Overview

The DVD of the lunk-headed wrestling comedy Ready to Rumble plays to the film's two strengths: an obsessive knowledge of WCW Monday Nitro antics and goofus, gross-out humor. The movie itself looks and sounds as good as it can, with an anamorphic, widescreen transfer and Dolby 5.1 Audio, but the extra features make seeing Ready to Rumble on DVD more entertaining than watching it in the theater. Ahmet Zappa joins stars David Arquette (Gordie) and Scott Caan (Sean) in a feature-length commentary that's easily funnier than the film's dialogue, and equally goofy behind-the-scenes footage maintains the proudly adolescent tone. "Up Close With the Nitro Girls" and interviews with WCW wrestlers provide extra fun for wrestling buffs, while the video for Bif Naked's "We're Not Gonna Take It," filmographies for the cast and director, and the theatrical trailer flesh out this unusually complete presentation of a less-than-spectacular film. While it may not appeal to all DVD collectors, fans of wrestling and dumber-than-dumb hijinks may find a lot to like here.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
A wrestling flick done up in American Pie drag, Ready to Rumble combines gross-out antics and copious male bonding with cartoon athletics and follow-your-dreams hokum. That may not sound like an endorsement, but it sort of is; the film has enough laugh-out-loud moments and genial charm to mark it as a serious contender in its class. A far cry less distasteful and misogynistic than Saving Silverman or Say It Isn't So, the film benefits immensely from the kooky enthusiasm of David Arquette and the classic straight-man contrast of Scott Caan. The many wrestlers who lent their talents (and their real-life ring personae) to the proceedings are clearly in on the joke, and director Brian Robbins stages their brawls with just the right style of bloody theatricality. Jokes about Martin Landau's prostrate and scenes that feature countless gallons of raw sewage don't exactly have universal appeal, but for audiences who flock to real-life pro wrestling and/or bought tickets to There's Something About Mary, there are far worse ways to spend a couple of hours. Of course, Rose McGowan isn't Cameron Diaz, and her pouty allure is mostly wasted here in a typical sexy bad-girl role. Not exactly a date movie, then, Ready to Rumble is instead the sort of thing guys will enjoy viewing together under the influence of malt liquor and pork rinds.

    Funnier than you'd think...!

    A capable cast, diminished in no way by the hilarity of wrestlers trying to act outside of their normal screen parameters, and a pretty decent script all come together to make a movie by and about and largely starring a now defunct promotion! Even as a pro wrestling fan, I wasn't expecting much or anything from this movie, and didn't actually see it in theaters. Then, one day, I caught it on cable and I couldn't stop laughing! First of all, because I was so startled that not only did I remember the names and character types of every wrestler in the movie - someone explain to me WHY Disco Inferno was rated high enough to be turned into one of the main wrestler good guys at the end - but the movie itself was so damned funny! You can just tell that the two leads, David Arquette and Scott Caan, got the biggest kick out of working with and around and, possibly, in spite of the wrestling world. Martin Landau is absolutely, drop dead hysterical as Sal Bandini, a tribute to the classic style of "more Roman-Greco, less wrestling" style. Then you have Jimmy King, portrayed beautifully by Oliver Platt, representing wrestling at it's most camp - and considering that Sting, a man wearing The Crow makeup, wielding a baseball bat, and hiding in the rafters wearing a singlet is in the movie, that's saying something. Rose McGowan, I'm ashamed to say, is superfluous, but funny in her own way. And to this day I still don't know how much of that movie was ad-libbed. In any event, truly worth the purchase, because it's not just slapstick and scatalogical humor, although that's an important part. There's a lot of genuinely brilliant comedy. It doesn't hurt if you're a wrestling fan, though.
