what a shame for those who didn’t get it
I like many people saw the trailer for this film and instantly felt angry at the Farrelly’s for crossing the line and taking the rip out of the disabled, after seeing it the only person having the rip taken out of him was johnny Knoxville who is brilliantly cast as the stooge of his addicted gambler uncle, Brian Cox.

The story of a man who fakes mental disability in order to compete in the special Olympics and win money in a betting scandal seems like it would be just too awful to be believed. But after demanding to be considered for a management condition and given the job of firing Stavi the cleaner, Johnny Knoxville’s nice guy character decides to hire him as a gardener, only for him to chop his fingers off. Needing several thousand dollars to pay his hospital bills, he takes the advice of his twisted uncle, played superbly by Brian Cox, to fake disability and rig the special Olympics.

To those who doubt the quality of the film, I say trust the highest raters, this is a very funny film! Don’t get me wrong film fans, if you want to see a classic comedy try Duck Soup and Annie Hall, but this is really funny and not only that but the film does have it’s heart firmly in the right place.

Like Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey this is one of the best underrated comedies and a true hidden gem.

Review By: cosmorados
Wow this movie is really underrated!
A long time ago when I first saw the trailer for “The Ringer” my reaction to it was what the hell? Why would someone make a whole movie based on a “South Park” episode? Then the trailer for “The Ringer” disappeared for a while and then resurfaced completely re-edited. The new trailer for the film didn’t really increase my interest in the film but out of curiosity (and the fact there really isn’t much out I haven’t seen) I decided to give the movie a chance and did so this afternoon.

“The Ringer” is about a guy named Steve (Johnny Knoxville) who has just gotten himself in a little bit of trouble and is in a bit of debt because he owes $25,000 to the local hospital. With no where else to go Steve turns to his uncle Gary (Brian Cox), who is also in debt because of a bad gambling problem. Gary soon comes up with the solution to both their problems, Gary wants to fix the Special Olympics and enter Steve as the special athlete in order to win the money to pay off both their debts. Funny and touching moments ensue

Wow!!!! That’s all I can say when I walked out of the theater this afternoon! This movie is probably one of the most poorly marketed and underrated films ever. The movie from its marketing makes you feel ashamed to even want to see it because it looks like it’s about making fun of people who are “special” but guess what? The movie doesn’t give off that vibe at all. In fact, it makes you actually view the mentally challenged as normal people. The movie is never mean when it comes to dealing with that topic in fact it’s almost uplifting and inspirational. Holy crap! Who the heck would think that would be possible from looking at the trailer or reading the plot outline?

“The Ringer” is one of these movies that received mediocre reviews which I don’t understand. Roger Ebert of all critics actually admitted to liking this movie which means the movie has to be pretty darn good because he’s a very harsh critic. I don’t understand how anyone can hate this movie. While it does contain some of Hollywood’s most typical scenes, the movie has a ton of heart, a decent amount of laughs, and overall good performances especially for a comedy. This is one of those hidden surprises that we rarely get from Hollywood. Also a little side note, this movie was made with the help of the real Special Olympics so it’s nice to know there is some reality that helps fuel the film.

The acting all around is really good. Johnny Knoxville plays his character Jeffy perfectly. Katherine Heigl plays Lynn the adorable counselor in charge of watching over the special athletes and her and Knoxville both have nice on screen chemistry. The best characters though are the mentally challenged athletes themselves especially Glen (Jed Rees) and Thomas (Bill Chott). Everyone did a fine job in making the film’s performances funny and believable.

The screenwriter Ricky Blitt is best known for writing several episodes of one of my favorite TV shows “Family Guy.” Who would have thought that someone who had such a creative mind to create crude and original jokes for an animated TV series would be able to create such a touching and funny script? Director Barry W. Blaustein did a good job capturing the heart felt moments and comedy. The whole “When did we get ice cream” scene was a classic among others. I think both guys did a good job with the film and I feel bad for both that this movie is doing better at the box office because this movie really does have potential.

In the end, “The Ringer” is a very enjoyable and unique comedy, one that makes you laugh with the characters and not at them. The writer and director as well as everyone involved make you look and think of mentally challenged people as normal people. When the movie tries to exhibit typical jokes like every time Steve falls down it fails as a comedy but when it’s not trying so hard to be funny it really is and luckily that’s the majority of the film. When you leave the theater after watching this film, you leave with a big smile on your face and almost feel a bit inspired. This film is sure to win the hearts of most and is truly a victim of bad marketing. I for one loved “The Ringer” and will be sure to buy it when it comes to DVD.

MovieManMenzel’s final rating for “The Ringer” is an 8/10. Ignore the trailers and check it out!
