Ready to Rumble (2000)

Film details


Comedy. Gordie and his pal Sean are unprepossessing individuals whose main hobby is watching World Championship Wrestling matches. When a match is staged in their town of Lusk, Wyoming, they watch aghast as their favourite wrestler is brutally beaten. Gordie and Sean see it as their bounden duty to restore their `hero' to his former glory. With this in mind they attempt to get him fit by hiring a trainer, with the idea of staging a rematch.
