I got this film on video some time ago from a charity shop, cost me twenty pence, and was worth every bit!!

Stalone is awesome in this movie, his attempt to make a rocky but not rocky film is pure genius

My dad used to always beat me in arm wrestles as a kid, as he was much stronger than me, but now I know where his special technique comes from.

This is one of my all-time favorite cable movies. Had no idea there was a line of action figures. I couldn't even find them on ebay! Sadly, Grizzly doesn't come with a F.U.B.A.R shirt and all of the corporate advertising is omitted, but they do come with Real Arm Wrestling Action!

I was waiting for this review after I read the one on "Cobra". Stallone could make a film about ballroom dancing and it would be badass.

can a guy who's lost so much come back to win it all?
Tears - tears are running down my face that's so beautiful. Rough, arm-wrestling MAN tears. Now excuse me whilst I get myself a tissue all on my own and get back and finish reading this review. I must also add that it's amazing what high res, widescreen will do to pretty much any movie - makes even Over The Top look like cinematic gold. Awesome job with the screenies RoG.

Great review RoG. Now I need to hunt down a copy of the DVD that has this and Demolition Man on it. Two great tastes that taste great together!

I remember seeing this movie when I was about 14 years old. My mom was very sick, and I was in the hospital waiting room when this movie came on. I watched the whole damn thing, and though it sounds blissfully retarded in retrospect, when I saw it, I thought it was the most soul-touching, beautifully-done movie I had ever seen up until that point.

If you want that tissue, you gotta take it. You hear me? The world meets nobody halfway. Now it's time to get that tissue for yourself so you can dry your eyes on your own. If you don't dry your eyes, you're gonna be sorry, you're gonna regret it your whole life. I know you can do it. Will you do it for me? Come on, let's get 'em!..... pure genius RoG

I was in a double elimination tournament once (not arm wrestling, needless to say) and in the finals that rule went to the wayside, so it might not be a continuity error.

I haven't seen this movie in ages. Mostly because it gets me too damn emotional. No I'm going to have to seek it out. Damn you Rog, Damn Yooooooooou!!!
Anyway, yet another request for an "Awesome Shark" shirt.
Also, when can we expect a review of Over the Topless?

I watched this cus of the rifftrax. The part where they interview wrestlers like it's a documentary or TV spot is fucking hilarious.

The bad music makes it almost unwatchable, though. "CUZ IN THIS CUNTRYYYY..."
