A decade ago, Hope Ann Greggory was America's sweetheart. Her inspired performance on a ruptured Achilles at the world's most prestigious gymnastics tournament clinched an unlikely bronze medal for the U.S. team. But in the years since that epic third place victory, Hope hasn't done a whole lot with her life. Now she must coach Amherst's newest gymnastics prodigy Maggie in order to receive a sizeable financial inheritance.

I checked this title out but after reading several reviews, decided against wasting my time watching it.

Due to the resoundingly bad reviews I only watched this film to pick up some new Portuguese profanity in the subtitles, but the fact is...it is freaking hilarious (!?!?). The main character is designed to be vulgar, conniving, & mortally self-absorbed, & the execution was absolutely flawless throughout, with a lot of great supporting performances besides. Meanwhile there's a clever & steady reveal of how fame & success create monsters of people, along with a sharp elbow of satire to movies about sports performance & personal transformation. IMHO we live in a culture where pretty blonde girls occupy this bizzaro sacrosanct position of preciousness & impunity, so seeing an actress willing to burn that edifice to the ground is actually quite refreshing. Bonus material: t@1nt locket...! CR

I watched this movie as I was really interested to see a different side of 'Bernadette' of The Big Band Theory. However, the movie just feels disjointed, the characters were a little too exaggerated, the flow was choppy, the dialogue a little forced. It's not that funny, not that dramatic, not that anything, really. I watched about fifteen minutes, skipped to a later part hoping that it'd get better, it didn't so I just stopped watching altogether.

The word f used all the time and the sex scene was filth. I would not recommend.

This movie was extremely vulgar from the opening act to the end. I do not recommend it at all.

Very so so movie I got admit the sex scene took some courage to do. Very hard core. I didn't go into this for laughs but for something different I think I got that.

Raunchy, fitfully funny sports comedy loosely inspired by Tonya Harding and Kerri Strug. Michelle Rauch, who also co-wrote, plays a foul-mouthed, washed-up Olympic gymnast who finds redemption by training a young woman. Rauch is a powerhouse in the lead and the rich supporting cast includes Gary Cole, Sebastian Stan (who was also in the Tonya Harding movie), Thomas Middleditch ("Silicon Valley"), and Cecily Strong ("SNL"). It's entertaining, mostly for the performances, but could've been funnier.

This movie is terrifying: you just Hope that she is only a fictional character. The behavior of the main character and her omnipresent course language was hurting both my eyes and ears and made the storyline impossible to enjoy. I wish I had spent my time on something substantial.

Too many f-bombs. Interesting take on the 'famous has-been' scenario. Occasionally funny.

Sexual Content: Very adult sex scene. Cliche to ideas surrounding gymnasts. Also sexual language and related situations such as personal gratification, and solicitations.

A sort of commentary of the rise and fall of elite athletes. The tragedy when people have nothing else in their lives to balance them out or to strive for. Also a reflection of the objectification of women and the sad ramifications of a woman's sense of self due to these experiences.
