Yet another loosely-based-on-fact film. They are the thing to do when run out of ideas, and actors need paying a few mill.

Funny and Heartwarming
- Fighting with My Family review by Spider
Yes, it’s hardly a groundbreaking format and it’s not short of a few cliches but the cast are brilliant and carry it off beautifully. One of the best films I’ve seen this year.

No originality here!
- Fighting with My Family review by TE
Worth 1 extra star for the energetic performance by Florence Pugh, otherwise this film is a ragbag of every tired old cliche to be found in movies about sport.
Professional wrestling is so completely scripted and rigged that it hardly qualifies as sport. It is more like a clownish soap opera with acrobatics thrown in. This makes the triumphant ending quite bizarre. How can you celebrate someone "winning" when it has all been scripted and agreed in advance? That's showbiz I suppose!
