NYT Review: ‘The Chaperone’: Wrestling With Laughs

In “The Chaperone” the professional wrestler Triple H stars as a former thug, now gentle giant, who wants to be part of his daughter’s life. — Neil Genzlinger Read the review

A lightweight comedy aimed, presumably, at tweeners and fans of World Wrestling Entertainment

Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 2011-02-18

 

As long as the poker-faced "Triple H" is the centerpiece, The Chaperone is not without moments of genuine sweetness. Best of all, he is the most unpretentious and least flamboyant human juggernaut to ever hit the screen.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2011-02-16

 

"The Chaperone" is dreadful enough to make you wish Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was still making family movies.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2011-02-18

 

Presumably there's an audience out there for old-fashioned, poorly written, unevenly thesped, family-friendly tales of redemption starring beefy wrestlers and a bunch of kids, but it's difficult to imagine who.

Ronnie Scheib, Variety, 2011-02-17

 

This lame WWE produced family comedy isn't likely to turn wrestling star Paul "Triple H" Levesque into a household name.

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 2011-02-17

 

Like last year's "Legendary" and "Knucklehead," which didn't exactly slam moviegoers to the mat with their entertainment chops, this haphazardly cliched comedy-drama about redemption similarly suffers.

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2011-02-17

 

The Chaperone is being marketed as a comedy, though no one seems to have told anyone involved.

Nathan Rabin, AV Club, 2011-02-17

 

As funny as these guys can be when they work themselves into a purple-faced rage yelling at the TV camera, none of the current generation of wrestler-actors seem to have the charisma or comic gifts of a Hulk Hogan or Dwayne Johnson.

Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, 2011-02-16

 

You get a bargain two high-concepts for the price of one in this amiably lame offering from Stephen Herek.

Ella Taylor, Village Voice, 2011-02-15
