Fighting with My FamilyIn a wonderful comedic story about Paige and her brother Zack, who were born in a cohesive wrestling family. It seems that both brothers will be very happy when they get a one-time chance to experience the WWE. Perhaps it may be quite different when Paige already gets a place in a competitive training program, so she must leave her family and face this new and severe world of gravity.

Critic Reviews of "Fighting with My Family"GuardianFebruary 27, 2019
Despite a great real-life background story, and despite comedy master Stephen Merchant being at the helm as writer-director, this movie never really comes off.Detroit NewsFebruary 22, 2019
A solid cast and Merchant's respectful approach elevates the material to the top rope, but it's rising star Pugh who hits her finisher.ReelViewsFebruary 22, 2019
Fighting with My Family is as likable as it is generic. Pugh's performance is the best thing about the movie but the story, despite Merchant's comedic flourishes, feels stale at times.Seattle TimesFebruary 21, 2019
Resist it at your peril.Globe and MailFebruary 21, 2019
There are few shocks along the way... but all the obligatory ups and downs are given decent weight by Pugh, as well as Nick Frost and Lena Headey as her beyond-the-mat parents. And for most of the film's run-time, that's enough.Toronto StarFebruary 21, 2019
Upending expectations may be the biggest victory of all for this movie.Caution SpoilersFebruary 28, 2019
Pugh is a winning heroine, real and flawed, acting on instinct out of the ring when within it she knows the scripted moves intimately. Though the standout is Lowden's sensitive portrayal of her brother Zak, forced to craft a different kind of dream.FILMINK (Australia)February 27, 2019
If you want a good laugh, you'll find it here. If you want some Rocky-style physical exertion, you'll get your fill. Even if you're not all that interested in pro wrestling, the serious talent has a solid chance of winning you over anyway.Daily Telegraph (UK)February 27, 2019
Wry self-sabotage after the fact is one of Merchant's secret weapons, and one of the reasons Fighting With My Family slips so nimbly under your defences.Seven DaysFebruary 27, 2019
Writer-director Stephen Merchant (cocreator of The Office) gives the potentially shopworn material a heartfelt zest by making the story as gritty and funny as it is inspirational.Financial TimesFebruary 27, 2019
A certain airbrushed quality pervades but, like wrestling itself, the key is probably just to accept the hokum and focus on the charm whipped up by Merchant and his cast.The Herald (Scotland)February 27, 2019
[Merchant] has an ending to put together, and throws himself into it as if to the sporting entertainment manor born.
