I bought the Bigger DVD, because of my lifelong interest in resistance training and all things connected to include bodybuilding and competitive lifting. I actually read the back and forth comments between Joe Weider and Bob Hoffman as noted in each of their respective magazines.
I was never a big fan of Joe Weider per say, due primarily to his self serving embellishments and elevated ego, but I do have to give him credit for separating bodybuilding from competitive lifting, and for promoting some of the major achievers, most specifically Arnold Schwarzenegger. Knowing the full story, I was somewhat disappointed in the film in that it blurred the lines with some facts and omitted essential facts that should have been better explained. However, with a 113 minute movie, I realize everything cannot be included.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was presented as a one dimensional oath in the film, when in fact, he was very intelligent and used Weider to his advantage, and patronized him when necessary. In the movie, Weider sees a picture of Arnold, immediately hopped on a plane, flew to Austria, found Arnold working out in a crude environment, brought him back to the US and personally trained him to win the Mr. Olympia. The truth is that Arnold was already accomplished at that time having one the Mr. Universe, and had lived in Germany and England, with good professional connections in both countries.
Given these issues, the movie is still worth watching, most specifically for those who with a previous knowledge of Weider and his impact on the sport of bodybuilding.
