Storyline Heading
Steve Barker is completely out-classed by his fellow Olympians, who are not only better athletes; they're just plain better people. And they're on to him. But rather than rat-out the rat, they join forces with him to once and for all beat Jimmy, the cocky reigning champion of the annual games. With a work-out regime uniquely their own, they train Barker to go for the gold and, in the process, show him what's at the heart of a true winner.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a silly comedy aimed toward a young adult, particularly male, audience. While it does not make fun of the Special Olympics or its competitors, sensitive viewers may be offended by the premise nonetheless.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'The Ringer' could have been a better movie, but that would have depended more on the screenplay than the cast, which is effective and generates real affection.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 68 moviegoers: For being a silly little movie with a no name cast these are some good opinions, especially from the ladies. Better than three-quarters of them really enjoyed "The Ringer." So, for the ladies I can easily recommend this movie.

As for the guys, teens enjoyed "The Ringer" very much. About half of young adult males enjoyed this movie very much and most of the remaining half rated it as an OK/average movie. Adult male opinions are a bit better. A little over half enjoyed it very much and the remaining ones enjoyed it to some degree. I would recommend it to guys, but not highly. I might suggest a matinee to reduce your chances of being disappointed.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Desperate for cash to help a friend in need and pay off his smarmy uncle's gambling debts, Steve Barker (Johnny Knoxville) sinks to an all time low...he attempts to fix the Special Olympics by pretending to be a person with intellectual disabilities. But he is completely out-classed by his fellow Olympians, who are not only superior athletes, they're also wiser in the ways of the world.

Several of his fellow competitors immediately spot Steve as a fraud, but because they too would like to see the fall of Jimmy, the snooty reigning champion, they join forces to help THE RINGER win. Together they train Steve to become a better athlete and, most importantly, a better man.
