Forgotten Cinema: Ready to Rumble

The Mikes are ending Season 5: Audience Choice with a bang....well maybe a pile driver, or a diamond cutter, as they take on the 2000 film, Ready to Rumble, starring David Arquette, Scott Caan, Oliver Platt, Rose McGowan, Joe Pantoliano, Martin Landau and a ton of pro wrestlers.

This episode of Forgotten Cinema Season 5: Audience Choice is brought to us by Joey DiCarlo from the So Wizard Podcast.

Listen in as Mike Field and Mike Butler discuss how this early aughts comedy works best when focusing on the wrestling. The Mikes will also talk about the inconsistency in Arquette's and Caan's characters that keep you from forming a connection to them and how good Martin Landau is as Sal Bandini. "Wanna Wrestle?!"

Thanks again to Joey DiCarlo and click to find out more about the So Wizard Podcast.
