With the right attitude (being willing to read English subtitles, not being a total pro-wrestling purist), QUEENS OF THE RING is an enjoyable movie on its own terms. A cynic might wonder why the WWE is coproducing a movie about professional wrestling, especially one set in France. Though it's a somewhat ludicrous execution of a dubious premise (it's not impossible for middle-aged cashiers to rise to pro-wrestling prominence within three months), all the characters are likable and funny in their own ways. Although it's not the greatest sports movie ever made by any stretch, there are some laugh-out-loud moments.

The enjoyment of this movie is entirely dependent upon how much you're willing to get into the spirit of the thing. This makes it similar to pro wrestling in that regard. If you can apply suspension of disbelief to something that's all about suspension of disbelief, Queens of the Ring is an entertaining story of persistence, empowerment -- and pile drivers.
