About this movie

Pressured by a greedy uncle (Brian Cox) and a pile of debt, lovable loser Steve Barker (Johnny 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!

I found this movie Funny and heart warming. goes to show that all that said this movie lacks or isnt funny, have no real sense of humor. we as athletes understand way more then you give us credit for. not all of us are "slow" and even those of us that are, we get it we just laugh later then you.
