Actually was better than expected. Johnny Knoxville didn't do half bad, but dont expect him in top movie roles.

Knoxville is serviceable in the lead, but it's his supporting cast (actual handicapped individuals) that provide the best moments. Hit-and-miss jokes abound, with a mediocre story. Worth a watch if you're interested.

I can appreciate the inclusion of mentally handicapped actors into this film, but that doesn't change the fact that the premise is massively ridiculous and Johnny Knoxville's portrayal of a fake mentally handicapped character still comes off as a little offensive (and pretty annoying, too.)

The Ringer is surprisingly better then i thought it would be, but not by much. With the farrelly brothers producing this film, i thought it be a film that made fun at mentally challenged people, but it's surprisingly sweet and warmhearted. Johnny Knoxville is likable and Katherine Heigl is charming, but Brian Cox steals the movie and single handedly provides the funniest scenes. I loved the message that this movie sent, but there aren't many laughs. It could have been funnier.

Knoxville doing what he does best, being a jackass

Johnny Knoxville is great! This movie while not one of his best films ever, is still quite funny in it's own twisted way. Knoxville plays Steve Barker, a man trying to get ahead in his career. The day he is given more responsibility he is told to fire Stavi the cleaning man at his job. Being the type of person he is, he can't bear to fire him, and so instead he offers him a position as a grounds keeper at his apartment complex. When Stavi has an accident that costs him 3 of his fingers, Barker will do anything to get him taken care of...even if it means rigging the special olympics.
Perhaps I'm biased in the respect that I think Johnny Knoxville is awesome in just about everything he has done, so perhaps my review here is one that you should take with a grain of salt. While I found it f...
