    One of the worst films of recent times Arquette does not entertain. He is almost as bad an actor as Alec "No Talent" Baldwin.

    Rather than doing a proper satire of wrestling, this film acts like it's real and churns out a lame Rocky knock-off. This film is a disgrace to both professional wrestling and cinema. The ironic thing is that the 'professional' actors, such as David Arquette, are stupendeously out-acted by their wrestling counterparts. Give DDP the Oscar!

    Being a wrestling fan, I watched this once when it came on tv. what a complete waste of time! It's stupid, unfunny, and embarrassing to even watch.

    This movie is an embarrassment to wrestling fans. What's worse is that, in an attempt to promote this piece of crap, WCW actually made David Arquette world champion, which was one of the final nails in the coffin for the already dying company. I wish i could give this movie a negative score because this peice of trash should have never been made. both the world of wrestling and the This movie is an embarrassment to wrestling fans.

    I just wanted to rail against the casual homophobia, the senseless violence and the sociopathic cruelty that Ready to Rumble treats as good clean fun.

    Let's be real clear about this: You've got to be suffering from some major trash-culture brain damage to enjoy a movie like Ready to Rumble.

    An extremely loud and simpleminded cross between TV's "WWF Smackdown!" and "Dumb and Dumber."
