Buyer BEWARE: DIGITAL option is for ITUNES ONLY
Verified purchase
DIGITAL option is for ITUNES only. First time that I bought a movie set (Blu-ray, DVD + Digital) and the ONLY DIGITAL way to redeem the movie is via ITUNES. I do NOT use ITUNES to manage digital movies. This is the FIRST time I've see a movie package set which has only ONE way to redeem the digital movie. This approach is "assuming" that everyone uses APPLE applications and products. Do NOT BUY this product if you are one of the MILLIONS of consumers who do NOT USE APPLE PRODUCTS. I cannot return because I opened the plastic cover and am now stuck with an incomplete movie set.

Buyer beware - itunes-only digital code
Verified purchase
Add me to the list of people that are disappointed with the "ITUNES ONLY" digital code. The front of the packaging does not say anything about it being a RESTRICTED digital copy.

I have no problem if a digital code is restricted as long as it is clear on the front of the packaging (and in all descriptions) that it is restricted.

As far as I am concerned, the packaging of this movie is misleading. I will think twice before buying movie from this production company in the future.

Love this movie... it is REAL.
Verified purchase
This is a look into what it takes to go all the way to the WWE. It doesn't hide what Paige and her family had to go through to make their dreams come true. I own this movie and I will watch it over and over. Gotta love the Rock and Vince Vaughn too.

Loved It! Outstanding Acting - GREAT Life Story - Quality Production
Verified purchase
This was one of the BEST films we have watched in some time. Both my Wife and I enjoyed it thoroughly and quite frankly, neither of us are fans of WWE or wrestling in general. Nothing against wresting or the fans but it just is not our normal cup of tea.

I cannot remember a film that was listed in both the documentary and comedy categories that lived up to and delivered content that achieved both subjects. I know my dear departed Father would have loved this film. He was a great fan of wrestling all his life and would challenge the fact most of it is scripted entertainment. Irregardless of whether it is scripted or not, Paige's lifetime of preparing for a career in the WWE with a family of wrestlers is delivered in a Quality production and one that makes you feel good when someone who strives for a goal can achieve it despite the hardships they may endure while growing up.

Understand that this is not a film focused on Dwayne Johnson or Vince Vaughn but both deliver outstanding performances in telling a story in a truly quality film.

was surprisingly good
Verified purchase
full disclosure, I HATE THE WWF and WWE or whatever the hell they market their "sports entertainment" product as now... I also once rejected an offers to be a springboard diver in the O show at Bellagio and a cliff diver at Waimea Falls Park in Hawaii in the 90s (both offers did not adequately compensate for the physical/medical risks being taken by 6'3" me) so I have a biased opinion about the sports entertainment industries... that said.

This was a really great movie about love and the consequences of having dreams broken and made. I am of the opinion that any movie you watch should make you feel joy, laughter, fear, regret, hate and sadness and this movie generated all of those emotions watching the characters being portrayed. My only mild gripe is they did not show more of the insane flexibility and acrobatics training that the characters actually needed to have to do the disciplines they were performing. While I still hate the bogusness of professional sports entertainment I legitimately enjoyed this film and it's worth a watch

Great true life story of woman reaching for her dreams in wrestling
Verified purchase
Fighting With My Family was a drama based upon the true life story of the Knight family who were all involved in the wrestling business. The movie featured Florence Pugh as the sister Paige, Jack Lowden as Zak the brother, Lena Headey as Julia the mother, and Nick Frost as Patrick the father. The whole family were in the wrestling business in England when Paige got the chance to make it big time in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The movie is about her journey and struggles to fulfill her dreams.

Right from the start the film sets its light mood. The dad for instance is talking with another wrestler about what he’s willing to do in the next match. First, he smacks him in the face with a garbage can top. Then he gets on the phone and says yes he’ll do that. Then he throws a bowling ball into the guy’s nuts. That continues throughout the story.

The center of the film is about the family dynamic between Paige who is picked to try out for the WWE while Zak is skipped over. The movie plays upon the struggles of the siblings. Paige for instance is faced with competition by a bunch of women who know nothing about wrestling but have the all-American look to them. She’s afraid the WWE only cares about image and not skill. Both end up feeling disappointed. It’s only when they overcome their personal issues that either one of them will be happy and successful.

In the end Fighting With My Family is highly entertaining and uplifting story as well. It also provides some behind the scenes look at how the Wrestling business works.

Worst beginning of a movie ever
Verified purchase
In the first 5 minutes they show preteen siblings fighting and the parents encourage the boy to chokehold his sister. Then they tell the little kids to get into wrestling because it's better that coke meth and heroin combined. Plus they have a British accent, where the WWE doesn't exist. this isn't just a bad movie, it's horrible.
