Saw an early screening. Really funny movie created by Stephen Merchant, one of the creators of The Office. Funny moments throughout mixed with some emotional pieces as well. WWE fans will love it, and anyone else will definitely enjoy too.

I was expecting to not like this, but was pleasantly surprised. it wasn't great but it was a good film that'll be a TBS staple in a few years. I didn't realize it was based on a true story going in, but I actually remember having tuned in to RAW one night seeing one of the matches.

Acting is decent, story is mildly interesting, but script, by Steven Merchant, leaves much to be desired although it might be his directing that’s at the heart of this blown opportunity. Two stars is generous.

Good story with good acting. Started a little slowly but picked up in the second half. I'm not into wrestling and still found it fairly enjoyable.

it was a good movie but any fan who follows WWE would notice that there was some issues with the film. But the backstory was good and overall a good film. I think this would have been a good movie to have on the WWE Network but then again breaking into the main stream to gain more interest into the WWE outside of the televised shows this is a solid fit.

I'm not a big fan of comedy, but this offbeat true story about the rise of WWE wrestling's youngest female star was a total hoot! More laugh-out-loud moments than I've seen in a long time. I DO enjoy sports stories, and this, while following the typical "underdog overcomes and becomes the champ" tropes, throws in some surprises that were both funny and touching. The cast is great--an especially nice job by Vince Vaughn, and some cool cameos from Dwayne Johnson, who, as one of the producers, shows through the film his gratitude to WWE for his ticket into stardom. A fine offbeat sports film with a hilarious and decidedly British take.

A refreshing movie about a struggling family who is far from perfect but loves unconditional! A great story of even when you don't fit in you can find your place and destiny in life! Vince Vaughn was fun to watch and a far different role than he's played before as a tough but humble trainer. Dwayne "Rock" Johnson not the main character but he knows how to command the screen when he shows up. Can't help but fall in love with "Fighting with My Family" that is relatable to most families who've gone through ups and downs and be happy for the success of someone you love.

Based on a true story about WWE Dive Paige. Such a great story with great actors. Merchant focused on telling a her story and how she became the youngest female wrestler in the WWE. Merchant did a great job directing. Nice cameos from The Rock, Big Show, The Miz, Sheamus and others. This is one to watch!

Metacritic

Sheer force of personality is the main ingredient of any great sports movie, and Pugh has enough of it to pull the story along. But this is a star performance that deserved an equally dazzling script.

The film benefits from Pugh’s charismatic performance and writer-director Stephen Merchant’s cheery mixture of crowd-pleasing sentiment, wry laughs and genuine sweetness.

Tim Grierson

Fighting With My Family reminds us several times that the sport is as much about charismatic storytelling as it is about skill. Judged by that standard, the film is far from belt-worthy.
