Synopsis

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

Reviews

Stephanie Zacharek Salon.com | January 06, 2006

The Ringer, for all its glaring flaws, pulls the rug out from under us.

Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle | December 27, 2005

As in the best Special Olympics events, everyone finds a way to win.

Kevin Crust Los Angeles Times | December 27, 2005

Though the movie bears some of the Farrellys' trademark outrageous humor, it has a sweet demeanor and makes a noble statement.

Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News | December 27, 2005

No one will accuse The Ringer of being tasteful, but when you're not laughing, you may find yourself genuinely touched.

Robert Denerstein Denver Rocky Mountain News | December 27, 2005

If The Ringer doesn't strike comedy gold, it at least manages to score enough points to bring home the bronze.

Gary Susman Entertainment Weekly | December 27, 2005

Knoxville's willingness to go to any length to humiliate himself for a laugh actually serves his guilt-ridden character, but the movie's real stars are the Special Olympians, who aren't trying to be inspirational or even likable, just funny.
