Roll of the dice bootleg
Verified purchase
Case and disc label look legit, but underneath has the telltale blue DVD-R bootleg look to it. Tried two new Blu-ray players, tried an old one that hooks to the internet, tried on my gamer with VLC, disc will not play, nor will it let me inspect the files via my compy. Missed my return window by a couple weeks.

If you get this, open immediately, try playing it, if it looks like a burned copy, return immediately and report as fraudulent.

The DVD Rules the Ring!
Verified purchase
While on the insane but never a dull moment journey with Gordie and Sean as they help their wrestling hero Jimmy King get back on his throne: Goldberg might throw you around in the gym, Sid Vicious and Perry Saturn might seek to put you in the hospital, and there is the risk of a four post massacre from four wrestlers specifically chosen by WCW chairman Titus Sinclair. But when the movie ends, you're walking out of the room with the world championship. Here's the icing on the cake, Michael Buffer stars in the movie as the ring announcer! Need I say more? The DVD rules the ring! Lace your boots!

Gen X Wrestling Movie!
Verified purchase
Old School fits this movie for the Gen X scene. The acting in this movie is just insane die hard wrestling fan based movie. It's all an act and so you have actors, acting as if there world has fallen apart when there beloved wrestler 'Jimmy King' gets beaten out of the ring, they go to all lengths to bring him back. They did a great job with alot of the big name wrestlers all playing rolls (Sting, Stone Cold, etc) They kept it humble to, trailer park brawls, 7-11 brawls etc. A good movie for wrestling fans for sure!

But who is Steve?!
Verified purchase
I ordered this movie for my brother for Christmas, and we haven’t watched it yet, but already a little worried. The back of the movie is definitely not the original description, is not grammatically correct, and the whole thing just doesn’t make sense. Plus, at the end of the movie description it suddenly switches from Gordie and Sean to Gordie and Steve?!?! We are still trying to figure out who Steve is!!!

Great comedy movie, but DVD could use more features
Verified purchase
The movie itself is a great comedy about two wrestling fans (Gordie and Sean) from Wyoming, who travel to Atlanta and New York to help out their fallen hero Jimmy "The King" King. The movie takes place within the WCW organization and has cameos by many of the wrestlers who were in WCW in early/mid 1999. The main plot of the movie is how these two fans help Jimmy "The King" get back into the ring after witnessing him getting cheated out of his title at a WCW Monday Nitro show.
This movie is a good comedy. But the plot may be a little weak if you are not a wrestling fan. I do recommend this movie to anyone who is a wrestling fan, ESPECIALLY if you are a WCW fan. The language may be a little harsh for some kids. It is not anything you haven't heard on WCW before, just a lot more of it.
My one complaint and reason for writing this is to say this DVD has almost no extras to it. The wrestler interview (DDP and Bam-Bam) and Nitro Girl interview segments are only 20 - 50 seconds long each. You do get the Bif Naked Video and the movie trailer. And the audio commentary is good in some places. But that is it of the extras on the DVD I have.
So if you buy it for the movie, you will not be disappointed. If you buy the DVD looking for extras, you'll feel like you just got suplexed.

Very funny movie
Verified purchase
Very funny move with a little grossness and crudeness thrown in. The fact that Oliver Platte was playing a wrestler is what drew me to this movie. I was sure there was no way he could pull it off, but he did. Surprisingly lots of name actors in it with a good mix if WWE Wrestlers. Great comedic entertainment.
