The Chaperone
AKA ‘Daddy Daddy Put My Husband In A Movie’ (Meeeowww)
Official Blurb:

All that former getaway-driver Ray Bradstone (WWE Superstar Paul Triple H Levesque) wants is to start a new life and patch things up with his daughter Sally (Ariel Winter, Modern Family). Unable to find honest work, he reluctantly agrees to do one last job with his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (Kevin Corrigan, Superbad). But when the opportunity arises to be a chaperone on Sallys school field trip, Ray resolves not to repeat his past mistakes and leaves the crew in the lurch. When the robbery goes awry and the money ends up on the school bus, Larue chases them all around New Orleans, with the police in hot pursuit. Now Ray must stay one step ahead of Larue, the cops and 30 out-of-control teenagers all whilst trying to spend a little bit of quality time with his daughter on one of the craziest field trips ever!

Thats What I Am Inside Look


After the minor success of the Big Show comedy, Knucklehead, the WWE have thrown their favourite son into the lion’s den to star in this supposed feel good family comedy. Triple H plays an ex con trying to reconnect with his reluctant daughter with the smell of his previous life still lingering around him. His old partner in crime tries to convince him to go on one last ‘job’ but should he go and be a chaperone on his daughter’s field trip instead? As you can imagine, nothing goes to plan!
I don’t mind Triple H and I enjoyed his performance in Blade 3, but the gags he throws out (Obviously not HIM but the script writers!) in this movie are akin to the stuff he does in the ring when he’s cutting a promo about The Big Show! Obviously the WWE film writers are also WWE Raw writers (?), but unfortunately what works on Monday nights does not neccessarily come across all that well on the big screen. Certainly this movie is going to be one that wrestling fans, including myself, are looking forward to seeing but what I’m assuming this division is aiming to do; reach out to movie goers not familiar with the wrestling business, is not going to be achieved with this one.
It’s a particularly old fashioned sort of a storyline, and you could compare it to other muscle-man-goes-soft films of years gone by; yeah we all get it these huge gorilla’s are actually teddy bears who like putting pig-tails in their daughter’s hair and reading them nighty night stories before bed!
It’s an OK movie for a wrestling fan, nice to see Hunter out of his ‘comfort zone’  & my 8 year old totally loved it! But not one I’d be advising anyone to go and see if they aren’t into wrestl…. I mean that thing the WWE does…
