Reviews: Fighting with My Family (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: Intimate portrait of an English girl who dreams of entering the wild and wonderful world of pro wrestling.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: a warm and messy, a sprawling family sports saga where the oddest of oddballs find their niches. Merchant and his cast have created the very definition of a crowd pleaser, whether you’re a fan of the WWE or not.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Stephen Merchant delivers a funny, moving, and rousing underdog story that shows how well a formula can work when under the right hands.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Genuinely heartwarming, totally cheerworthy, bursting with warm and generous performances, and just a whole damn lotta fun. (And I hate professional wrestling.) Florence Pugh absolutely rocks it.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Fighting with My Family will surprise as an early-2019 gem that won’t require wrestling-averse audiences to know Big Show from Sheamus.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: The true-ish story of WWE fighter Paige comes to cinemas with the help of our collective guardian angel, Dwayne Johnson.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Wrestling with greatness.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: It works because it plays like a character study with some inherent stakes, like many of the better sports movies out there.
  • [New] | Tusshar Sasi @ Filmy Sasi
    • Excerpt: From a title that might as well be fit for a raging dysfunctional family drama, ‘Fighting With My Family’ talks about one that is quite the opposite.
