10 years ago, at Sheena's (Amanda Crew) official good-bye party - she was going to conquer the world as a professional wrestler - Corey (Chris Marquette) made a fool of himself proposing to her (and being turned down). He has since gone through hard times and eventually wound up being a deli clerk. Sheena has since had a wrestling career - which had fallen on hard times as well though, so she decides to attend her local high school reunion ... where she accidently knocks out Corey. But Corey's hell-bent to win her over this time around, which is easier said than done as Sheena's planning her comeback, and she's pretty much in a relationship with her manager, slick Tab (Niall Matter). But Corey somehow convinces her to quit wrestling, and when Tab persuades her to do one last fight, Corey persuades her to do it locally, in her hometown where everything started. But Tab isn't one to give up quite as easily on his girlfriend and cash cow, so he takes over organisation (and to be honest, he's quite capable, too) - and brings in talent scouts from a Japanese wrestling league Sheena always dreamed of joining. So Corey pretty much fights a losing fight ...


Now to be totally honest, everything's not great with Chokeslam, its subtext of putting small town life over following one's dreams and never let go of one's high school love, so matter how much she hurt you, is a bit narrow-minded - but shared with a gazillion of other romantic comedies. What makes this one work are its numerous eccentric supporting characters, from Corey's small fry crook friend (Michael Eklund), his mother (Gwynyth Walsh) and her lover (Mick Foley), to his psychotherapist who works menial jobs on the side (Agam Darshi) and a batshit crazy wrestler (Harry Smith), but even more than that that the film's set against a wrestling backdrop, which means despite the romance there's always a brawl around the corner, there's action aplenty, and the whole thing's well enough paced to not keep one from the fighting for too long.

Maybe no masterpiece, but decent fun for sure.
