Saddled with a friend’s massive medical bills, Steve Barker (Johnny Knoxville) conspires to rig the Special Olympics by faking a disability so his gambler uncle (Brian Cox) can place bets on him to win. He faces the challenge not only of fooling his rivals, but of dethroning the current champion (Leonard Flowers).
As with Stuck On You, this is proof that when the Farrellys are involved (even as mere producers), ribald yet humane comedy can be mined from the most potentially offensive sources.
