The Ringer

Posted in Movie Reviews on December 27, 2005 by coryangennet

Title: The Ringer

Staring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Johnny Knoxville, Katherine Heigl, Luis Avalos, Brian Cox

Genre: Comedy

Status: In theaters now

Plot Summary: When Steve (Knoxville) gets in a bind for a medical bill he goes to his Uncle Gary (Cox) but instead of giving him the money they decide to win it by rigging the Special Olympics.

Review: This movie was not what I expected it to be. I expected lots of laughs from Knoxville but really there was only a few. The movie wasn’t all that much of a comedy but more of a documentary or something you’d see on PBS or something. It made you really think about the Special Olympics and the people that are involved which just made it sort of a heart-warming story that I didn’t really want to see. Plus you can’t forget that every movie now-a-days has to have a love story and it all works out in the end. I have to say that comedically, I wasn’t impressed. It was good though, I’ll give it that.

Rating: 7/10
