Special Olympics approves of The Ringer.

Didnt see that coming. I am glad that they did.
I am assuming that Farrelly brothers knew where to go and where not to go.

A little information about The Ringer for those who don’t know:

Plot Summary

This comedy is about two guys who decide to rig the Special Olympics to pay off a debt by having one of them, Steve (Knoxville), pose as a contestant in the games, hoping to dethrone reigning champion, Jimmy. Mentally-challenged high jinks and hilarity surely follow.

To put things in perspective, During South Park 8th Season, they had an eposide where Cartman enters the Special Olympics to try and finally win something. Click Here For More Episode Information : The eposide, as most South Park Eposides Make it very funny, but no prestige funny, just plain old funny plus there is also a moral to the episode. This the approach that I see the Farrelly brothers taking. So I am glad to see that the Special Olympics approves.

Be sure, to come back here after the movie is realased ( 23rd )for a Full Review.
