Paige Biopic “Fighting With My Family” Receiving Positive Reviews

“Fighting With My Family,” the Paige biopic written and directed by Stephen Merchant and executive produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson” has premiered at Sundance, and reviews are starting to trickle in. Here’s a few excerpts:

Slash Film: “…it’s the true story of Divas wrestler Paige and how she worked her ass off and rose to WWE fame thanks to the support and obsession of her unconventional wrestling family. And the result is not only the wrestling movie fans have always wanted, but one of the best underdog sports movies ever made about a female athlete.”

AV Club: “Fighting With My Family (Grade: B-) is a shamelessly formulaic but fairly irresistible crowd-pleaser with a weird pedigree.”

IGN: “Fighting With My Family delivers on comedy, action, and a sweet message of acceptance and strength at its core. It might be a bit too wrestling-heavy for some, but the strong cast, interesting real life story, and a magnetic lead mean this black sheep sports story is a feel-good flick with chops that might finally put WWE Studios on the map.”
