The Wrestler

Does the acting live up to the hype? Surprisingly, yes. The story of a past his prime wrestler, "The Wrestler" isn't for anyone looking for a 'feel good' story. The film chronicles the struggle of fading fame and the reality of the things sacrificed in the pursuit of fame.
The bright side of the movie? Marisa Tomei, as a down on her luck stripper, is topless for most of her scenes and has the body of someone half her age... and Evan Rachel Wood makes a post-Manson appearance as Mickey Rourke's estranged daughter.
It'll only take one beer to make it through the movie, but you may want to finish the six pack when it's over.
