Good But Could've Used More Heart.

I think this movie really missed it's target audience. While it is breath of foul mouthed air in the usually formulaic and insipid gymnastic movie genre, it goes too far with the raunch. I think if they had pared back the language and nudity to a PG-13 level and replaced it with more character development and heart, they could've been competing for the Gold. Okay, enough of the gymnastic metaphors.

Some of this stuff was staring them in face. I mean, they create a central character who's totally self-centered, lacking in schooling and social skills. They could've given her a great scene and a large amount of redemption by revealing her Olympic training robbed her of childhood. She didn't get proper schooling, only had rivals, never friends, never learned how to relate to other people and because of her early victory, was never was allowed to grow up. It was right in front of them but they never go there. As a result Hope lacks depth and the movie doesn't really deliver a satisfying ending.

Given that most gymnastic movies target girls who are of age to be learning gymnastics, the language goes too far and the sex scene while being sort of funny is way too graphic for a family with children to watch. They could've accomplished the same goals the movie strives for with a little less of the language and sex and a little more heart. Still, it's a good movie and a fun watch, it's just it could've been very good.

Quirky and Vulgar

(Flash Review)

Ever wonder what a former gymnast turns into after they finish their competitive life? This movie is sort of a character study of a successful gymnast who has broken out of a childhood that probably has been void of anything but gymnastics practices and following strict rules. She is extremely vulgar, lacks class, self-centered and has zero experience with boys. During this movie the former gymnast refuses to accept that her competitive days are over and she clings to the fact that she is the hero of her small hometown as she earned a gutsy bronze medal at the Olympics. She is lured into training a local star in hopes of amassing a large payday after the final competition. Will she try her best for the young star's success or will she sabotage this star to retain her local hero status? Overall, the movie doesn't need to be as vulgar as it is. The cursing is blunt and isn't even cleverly worked it as with The Big Lebowski for example. There are some odd and amusing moments but the movie is never laugh out loud funny. There is a very 'athletic' sex scene. The acting is solid and odd to see Bernadette in this role. Strange and profusely vulgar and a break from the typical mold.

needs to be sharper

In 2004, Hope Ann Greggory overcomes an injury to earn an Olympic Bronze medal and becomes the national hero of the Games. In the present, she (Melissa Rauch) is a foul-mouthed, mail-stealing, pill-snorting mess living off of her past glory with her widower mailman father Stan (Gary Cole) as the biggest name in her hometown of Amherst, Ohio. When her former coach dies, she receives the suicide letter promising an inheritance of $500k if she takes over coaching Maggie Townsend (Haley Lu Richardson) to the upcoming Olympics in Toronto. Ben Lawfort (Thomas Middleditch) co-owns the gym with the late coach who Hope derisively calls Twitchy for his facial ticks. Maggie has a struggling single mom Janice (Cecily Strong). Lance Tucker (Sebastian Stan) is the national coach who has a history with Hope.

This is a dark comedy that needs a few rewrites to clean up the character's emotional journey. The outline is fine and Hope is a good dark character. I like all the actors. There is some good material here but the humor is not up to snuff. Melissa plays the one-note well. Haley is cute and has good chemistry with Melissa. Thomas Middleditch is a doll and the romance is cute. This is fine but it needs to be sharper.
