Eric Recchia (9 out of 10 )
Truly brilliant script, with two small issues: One is the age of Cassidy. Her relationship and parallels with Randy would have been a lot more believable if she was closer to him in age. A problem in the film was the casting of Marissa Tomei. No 20 year old guy would pass up the poster woman for M. I. L. F. And 36 doesn't doesn't strike me as some ancient relic who's baby maker cums dust, which is the picture this script is trying to paint. Secondly, the wrestling scene themselves were a little overlong. Wrestling by itself is staged, so seeing a match play out in film is essentially devoid of real conflict. It's interesting to a point seeing how violent it all is, but by the second time, I would have cut about half of it out and jump straight to the heart attack. That aside this is a fine example of quality screenwriting. This is a richly textured deeply sympathetic protagonist in spite of all the problems he has as a human being, and every point of characterization is told through clever, often in this case, brilliantly conceived visual clues. Randy only knows this world of wrestling. The SNES scene sets up the central conflict, that he's obsolete, and out of touch with the real world, brilliiantly. A lesser writer would force in cheap exposition.
