The Ringer On DVD Review

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.*

Pressured by a greedy uncle (Brian Cox) and a pile of debt, lovable loser Steve Barker (Knoxville) resorts to an unthinkable, contemptible, just-crazy-enough-to-work scheme. He pretends to be mentally challenged to rig the upcoming Special Olympics and bring home the gold. But when Steve's fellow competitors get wise to the con, they inspire him to rise to the greatest challenge of all: becoming a better person.

Produced by the fearless Farrelly Brothers (There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal), The Ringer will keep you smiling all the way to the finish line!

Special Features
  • Commentary by Director Barry W. Blaustein, Screenwriter Ricky Blitt, Producer Peter Farrelly, and Actors Johnny Knoxville, Edward
  • Barbanell and John Taylor
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Let The Games Begin: A Look at The Ringer
  • Theatrical Trailer


I didn't really find this funny. Sure there were a few parts that got a few giggles out of me but it wasn't really a laugh out loud kind of movie. Also it is predictable but it wasn't completely boring like some comedies I have watched lately. I did keep watching because the storyline wasn't so bad so it wasn't a complete waste.

I give this 3 out of 5. 

The Ringer is available in stores near you.
