QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: The true story of Paige, who was raised in a quirky, yet tight-knit wrestling family in small-town England and rose to fame as a WWE Divas superstar.
PLOT:
Siblings Saraya Knight (FLORENCE PUGH) and Zak Knight (JACK LOWDEN) have been wrestling together since they were very young children. Their dad, Ricky Knight (NICK FROST), has been their teacher, running a small wrestling school and fight venue in small-town England with wife and mom, Julia Knight (LENA HEADEY). They barely skate by, and Ricky -- a recovering alcoholic and former convicted felon -- is always debating whether or not he should revert back to a life of crime.

Then one day, their prayers are seemingly answered when WWE promoter Hutch (VINCE VAUGHN) calls up and invites Saraya and Zak to try out for a spot on NXT, WWE's farm system for its main roster. Saraya makes the cut, and Zak does not. Saraya, age 18, has a difficult time fitting into the WWE's training program in sunny, distant Florida. Alone and on her own for the first time, she flounders against her main competition -- a trio of former cheerleaders and models named Maddison (ELLIE GONSALVES), Kirsten (AQUEELA ZOLL), and Jeri-Lynn (KIM MATULA) -- who she believes were brought in for their T&A appeal and not their wrestling skills. Meanwhile, Zak flounders back in England as a new father dealing with feelings of failure that his lifelong dream will not come true (and, even worse, was stolen by his sister).

Along the way, Saraya does get encouragement from WWE legend Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (HIMSELF) and a trip home gives her the motivation and gumption to return and compete for a spot on the big stage. Eventually, having renamed herself Paige, she is given a shot against current WWE Divas champion AJ Lee (THEA TRINIDAD).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens, especially those who follow pro wrestling, may be attracted to its ring action, PG-13 rating, and young leads.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For crude and sexual material, language throughout, some violence, and drug content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
