Fighting With My Family looks like the perfect example of a film where once you’ve seen the trailer, you’ve seen the entire film.
Nick Frost is former wrestler Ricky Knight who, together with his family, make a living performing at small venues around the country, while his children dream of joining World Wrestling Entertainment. However, son Zak (Jack Lowden), is not best pleased when his sister, Raya (Florence Pugh – The Little Drummer Girl, and above-left), beats him to the punch… so to speak, as she is the one who is chosen.
This looks so terrible, and while it gave me a laugh when Dwayne Johnson (The Rock, in wrestling terms) popped up a couple of times, that really is enough for me.
Fighting With My Family is released in the UK on March 1st 2019. It does not get a knockout from me.
