What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star
James Berardinelli The drama is weak and unconvincing even by sit-com standards. Nevertheless, Grudge Match is enjoyable in an undemanding fashion until it crashes and burns at the end.
C. Fuchs Like the sport itself, boxing movies had their heyday long ago, and this attempt to rekindle that comes off quite in line with any real-life boxer thinking he can get back in despite being decades past his prime. It's not a good idea, a sentiment that applies to this flick.
Tomatometer Grudge Match is sporadically funny but meandering, and its strong cast largely mired in a plot that's overrun with clichés.
