the story is quite simple, and a little bit cliché.

I'll start with the acting, like I said before it was great to see a WWE film without John Cena, but somehow the cast just seems to be very dry even though they have a good reputation.

I must say, it's much more enjoyable then I first thought.

I'll end by saying the intentions of the movie were good but with only a couple of good actors and only the base of the storyline good we are left with an unfunny, cluttered, and dull film.

It's fairly genuine in its approach, and Triple H (Paul Levesque) is actually non pretentious and likable, something I can hardly say about him in the WWE.

To sum it up; Enjoyable, a bit to long stretched movie that puts your brain in relaxation mode.

I believe the many of the moments although very funny and excellent to watch, are quite cliché'd.

I like it when details fit together and dislike it when parts of a story line are left unexplained and make a story seen disjointed.

The movie is watchable if you are bored.

I think that's partly what made it more enjoyable for me to see Triple H in a different way.

The pace of the movie is the same from starting to end and yes u can expect what will happen in the end however its a well directed movie (u wont get bored).

Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an okay family-comedy which suffered from a predictable plot and a rather weak script.
