Cash-strapped attorney and unsuccessful high-school wrestling coach Mike (Giamatti) starts pocketing a monthly windfall after a devious legal manoeuvre. Then miraculously a champion teen wrestler (Shaffer) arrives in town. Mike thinks he’s in a win win situation, but finds his responsibilities and anxieties multiplying faster than his lies.
Funny, agreeable and thoroughly enjoyable, if a little bit too neat and fortuitous in sorting out its entangled strands.
