I shared the Win Win Printable Grocery List in anticipation of the film Win Win coming out. Well, I received a copy of it and am able to do a giveaway with it. Win Win comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray tomorrow (August 23rd) from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Here is a synopsis of the film:
Win Win is the story about a struggling lawyer and suffering high school wrestling coach Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) delivers an amazing performance showing that in the game of life you can’t always lose them all. Mike struggles through life as a lawyer who in his spare time is a wrestling coach for the local high school where they can’t seem to win a single match. One day Mike comes across a teenage runaway named Kyle (Alex Shaffer), who through some investigating finds out he is a champion wrestler and the team begins to win. With allot of nagging he finally gets Kyle to join the team but his mother who is fresh out of rehab and flat broke looks to mess everything up.
I feel like this was an adult feel good film. I think it’s rated “R” because of the language (lots of the cuss word that is like shoot but it’s not and a couple of f-bombs) and it did show a man’s bare behind briefly. I watched this movie one night alone and enjoyed myself. I really liked that the family took Kyle in and loved him. I thought Mike’s older daughter was adorable since she repeated whatever parents said. Haha! I also thought the man who played Leo (Kyle’s grandfather) was flat-out adorable.
I actually dated a wrestler in high school. Now, he wasn’t any good. Haha! However, I did attend some matches and tournaments. So, I was happy to see that the wrestling side of the story was pretty accurate. I mean from the weigh-ins to the practices and matches, it reminded me of high school.
As you know by now, I don’t giveaway endings or too much of a story in my reviews. So, I won’t ruin it for you. However, I will say that I liked the movie. It had a couple of funny moments and I enjoyed it.
