You Cannot Kill David Arquette

A documentary crew follows David Arquette as he seeks redemption in the eyes of the the pro-wrestling community who hate him. Having "won" the championship belt 20 years earlier, an infamous stunt used to promote his movie Ready to Rumble, Arquette's career has since wavered. Now, in an audacious act of solidarity, he puts his middle-aged body on the line and in the ring for real.

There's no doubting Arquette's sincere desire to learn the sport and craft of wrestling, to get into shape, to resuscitate his career, to make his family proud.

I can't help thinking that a real documentary could be made about David Arquette's midlife crisis and this isn't it.
