I just screened "The Wrestler" which is scheduled for big screen release sometime soon. I had passes for the Hamptons Internation Film Festival screening. It was really good and especially cool for wrestling fans. Necro Butcher, Nigel McGuiness, Earnest the Cat... bunch of cool cameos. Rourke was amazing in it and to top it off there is A LOT of naked Marissa Tomei involved.
Recommended for wrestling fans and movie fans alike.
I, too, am surprised to see such a scathing review for what I felt was one of the funniest movies of 2006. There are definitely a ton of quotables, which makes it one of those movies that you just love to watch over and over again.
