Redband trailer for new Morgan Spurlock wrestling documentary

by Phil Wheat


Produced by Kerri Borsuk, Academy Award Winner Glen Zipper (Undefeated) and Ross Dinerstein (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), Ryan Harvie and John Paul Horstmann, Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary takes a look at a subject close to my heart… wrestling!

Morgan Spurlock Presents Bodyslam: Revenge of the Banana! follows a unique group of social outcasts who partake in the world of amateur wrestling via SSP Wrestling (Seattle Semi-Pro Wrestling). Led by Josh Black a.k.a. “Ronald McFondle,” and Bill Bates a.k.a. “Eddie Van Glam,” by day the wrestlers are chefs, hairdressers, and delivery men, but by night these “cabaret combatants” put on raunchy matches while rabid fans chant obscenities and hurl beer cans at their heads…

It’s all fun and games until new recruit Paul a.k.a. “The Banana” joins up and plays the role of villain far too well. Banished from the group, he swears revenge and uses the law to try to shut SSP down. McFondle and Van Glam must rally their troops and use every trick in the book to save their family. Full of raucous humor, profanity, gratuitous male nudity and copious helpings of heart, this hilarious documentary will surprise you every step of the way.
