    ★★★

    I get it. I get why all the low scores. It's cheesy and thrown together and maudlin as all hell. Honestly it might have worked better as a three or four part mini-series on Showtime or something. So yeah, I get why everyone shits on this. There are countless numbers of things to roll your eyes over. But...

    It's a really sweet story and at least there was an attempt to do something somewhat original here. Also the cast doesn't…

    The standard biopic is not so standard. Dude really was (or has become) a mythological being.

    The build up to and breakdown of "Wrestlemania III" was great. Especially if you were alive at the time and remember how exciting it was.

    In short, it's a good doc, but your mileage may vary depending on your nostalgia factor.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
