One Sentence:  It's like Napoleon Dynamite except not funny, or cool, or interesting, or good.

Jack Black, Jared Hess (director of Napoleon Dynamite) and wrestling.  It's gold, pure comedy gold.  The problem is they forgot the comedy gold part.  I think they were trying the same thing as they did with Napoleon, with the deadpan and more like the situations would be funny in an awkward way.   However it didn't seem to work out at all. 

I was extremely bored during this movie.  More so than I have been in a long time.  I didn't find any of it funny.  It was just so dry and slow, there was nothing to get into.  The wrestling matches were overall weak and not very fun.  The dialog was just boring.  Jack Black was just barely ok.  I just didn't feel him at all.   I didn't feel anything about this movie.  

The only reason it gets a 2, is because it wasn't bad.  There was nothing horrible about it.  It was just boring.  It was almost like there was nothing there at all.  They put together a movie that made sense, was filmed well, and did all those types of things right, and it just had no substance at all.  I would skip this one, and if you have it in your queue, I would take it out and save the spot for something else.
