      Rokers M Just watch it, and you will understand why this sucks. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review kevin c By the numbers harmless comedy starring WWE's The Big Show, who works has spent the majority of his life at an orphanage until a fire threatens to shut it down. He teams up with a woman and a fight promoter who needs something big to make some money to pay his debts. Harmless fun for the family. Although farting jokes in movies just seem like lazy throw ins from an already not overly funny script. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Knucklehead Directed By: Michael W. Watkins Starring: Mark Feuerstein, Melora Hardin and Paul Wight Plot: After con artist Eddie Sullivan (Feuerstein) incurs a large debt with a local criminal ringleader, he creates a get-rich-quick scheme and enlists a sweet gentle giant named Walter (Wight) as his unwitting accomplice. Walter's orphanage -- the only home he's ever known -- also needs funds desperately. Upon overhearing Walter's predicament, Eddie convinces the no-nonsense head nun, Sister Francesca (Malick), that Walter can win the money as a fighter and pay off the church's debts. Eddie's plan: travel from town to town with Walter and enter small, unsanctioned fighting competitions for prize money Sister Francesca dispatches Mary (Hardin) as a chaperone for both Walter and the money and gives Eddie a week - and a prayer - to make it happen. During their journey across the south to the annual Pro-Am MMA tournament in New Orleans, Walter discovers what life is like outside the orphanage, while Eddie becomes morally conflicted over whether to take all the loot for himself or keep his promise to Walter, the one person he can actually call a friend Review: Well I'll give the film this much it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but it could of done without the bathroom humor that I felt took away from what could have been a watchable comedy film. Paul Wight (Big Show from WWE) really shows off his acting skills and shows that he could be in more films ranging from Serious to comedy as this film had all of those aspects. Overall I just wasn't that drawn in and wasn't too into the film after the first fart gag. Rating: 5/10 Recommendation: Rent it at Bronco Video or anywhere you are able to rent videos. The film is also available on Netflix. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member average film . The bus toilet scene and the bear fight are hilarious, but other than that an average film from WWE Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member It's rubbish but who cares? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Remember when WWE movies were entertaining, like the first Marine.... wait... was there any other good ones? Anyway, this one was pretty dumb. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Joe Neumaier New York Daily News Well, at least someone is trying to emulate the Farrelly brothers -- except "Knucklehead," director Michael W. Watkins' half-assed, halfhearted attempt to copy the Farrellys' out-there style is missing both their jackassical riffs and their heart. Rated: 1/5 Nov 9, 2010 Full Review Mike Hale New York Times World Wrestling Entertainment continues its effort to meld violent sport with gooey, throwback family comedy in the claptrap road movie Knucklehead. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 22, 2010 Full Review Kyle Smith New York Post Knucklehead's candy corn heart and shameless predictability are almost touching in their obliviousness to anything that's happened in movies in recent decades. Cute orphans? Really? Rated: 1/4 Oct 22, 2010 Full Review Chris Hewitt St. Paul Pioneer Press Wight is appealing, but let's hope he gets better opportunities than this. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 22, 2010 Full Review Prairie Miller NewsBlaze The ho-hum premise picks up steam as the goofy humor escalates during the course of this bumpy road movie. Kicking off with a synagogue showdown with the infamous Kosher Killer, and later fearsome female sidebars including sisters of mercy who nun up. Oct 21, 2010 Full Review Edward Douglas ComingSoon.net The perfect follow-up to "Jackass" if only because it's equally moronic, although in this case, it's not even remotely funny. Rated: 3.5/10 Oct 20, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
