The Peanut Butter Falcon

When i first read about the Peanut Butter Falcon i was stoked yet weary. A wrestling road movie? Could go either way. Then the trailer dropped and i was sold. The first time i saw it called modern Mark Twain i figured it would become the norm in reviews, which it did, but they weren't wrong. This, Mud, and Kings of Summer are all easily Twain esque. Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson both bring alot of heart, as does Thomas Haden Church but the lead, down syndrome actor Zack Gottsagen steals the show. This is a film about friendship, being free, and following your dream. As for the wrestling aspect, Jim Cornette would either love it or hate it because of the outlaw mudshow promotion that is featured. Wrestling fan or not this is a great film with alot of laughs and heart.
