The first reviews are coming in for the latest WWE studios production, "Knucklehead," starring the Big Show. The movie will have a limited release this weekend and go straight to DVD shortly after that.

Joshua Rothkopf of Time Out New York called it "A distinctly shameless and shoddily made family comedy, this WWE production for wrestler Big Show turns an already saccharine plot into a toxic, fart-laden piledriver."

"A mere plot summary can’t begin to approximate the way you’ll feel manhandled by a stridently wacky orchestral score (more syrup for your pancakes?) and story elements seemingly selected by a brain-dead Hulkamaniac," Rothkopf said. "Is it fair to include both an unattached blond teacher and a cute orphan with abandonment issues? Wight himself is a benign, dopey presence; you don’t mind him. But it’s a mistake for the big lug to shoot so broadly for the middle. It takes a special kind of failure to make Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s efforts look like models of sparkling wit and unpredictability."

In another review, Nick Shager had of Slant Magazine asks, "If a WWE-produced film can't get squared-circle action right, what can be expected of it."



Any one seen it yet? If so do you agree with the reviews. Any one actually interested in seeing it or you ganna give it a miss

When they say "limited release", they mean it's only being shown in 6 cinemas across the WHOLE continent right?

Movie critics ALWAYS shit on WWE's films. I find it hard to believe that it could be that bad. I thought that the trailer actually looked pretty funny. I'll probably download it and see if it's any good. If it was in Cinemas over in England I'd go and pay to see it.

movie critics always shit on WWE films because WWE films always suck.

the trailer was pretty abysmal, and ended with a cliche fart joke that pretty much summed up its entire attempt at comedy. no interest in seeing this, and no surprise if it sucks. they haven't made a good one yet.

Limited release? :hmm: So we can expect it out on DVD in a few weeks much like Legendary was?

No, I have absolutely NO interest in seeing this or any other WWE made film for that matter.
