I am a huge wrestling fan and a huge movie fan so when the two come together I am all in. this was a comedy that WWE put together starring The Big Show as your typical man child. With the title that this film has I am sure you know what you are getting into. The best thing about this movie is that it is a family film. My little cuz and I have watched this a few times because she loves it.
Walter Krunk [Big Show] is a full grown orphan is a mess that breaks all things around him, but he has a big heart. When an accident in the kitchen of the orphanage leaves the room burned down they are told they have ten days to fix it or be shut down. Enter Eddie Sullivan [Mark Feuerstein] a fighter manager who is in dept to the wrong people and needs to pay them back. When he finds Walter he takes the giant under his wing so that they can win some fights and hopefully they will both get the money they need.
For the adult watching this it may not be a laugh out loud classic comedy but it is an enjoyable film. As for the kids they will love it, what is better than a big kind hearted giant who is very clumsy. This is a fun movie that actually has some decent fight scenes for a family flick. My cuz in particular loved the bear part, reminds me of the kid flicks from the 90's and such. You know like "Kindergarten Cop" and such, it just as that feeling about it.
The Big Show makes for a great lead in this family friendly movie which makes sense given his comedic turns in the WWE. He delivers with his character very well and the physical comedy is well done. Feuerstein is good here as well playing a guy you should hate because of what he is doing but you root for him anyway. Will Patton and Dennis Farina were excellent additions to the film as was Wendie Malick as the head Nun [excellent] and Melora Hardin as well. This isn't the best movie ever but it is a good one especially for family viewing. There are some great special features here like the commentary that Show is actually on.
Nice, light and dumb comedies. Even when they aren't funny they are still enjoyable. You can see the jokes a mile away, contrived circumstances, over reliance on bodily functions for jokes, stupid costumes and even some name celebrities show up for easy cash. Knucklehead, sadly embodies ALL of these tropes. It also doesn't hurt that The Big Show, one of my favorite wrestlers is involved. Topping over 7 feet tall and weighing just shy of a … more

It follows the on-the-road adventures of a trio of misfits -- a naïve giant and church orphan-turned-amateur fighter Walter Krunk (Big Show); former mixed martial arts champion-turned-manager Eddie Sullivan (Mark Feuerstein); and church aide-turned-chaperone, Mary O'Connor (Melora Hardin) -- fighting their way across the south to the annual Pro-Am mixed martial arts tournament in New Orleans.
