Variety - Unnamed
Knucklehead has a professional slickness about it, flawless shooting by d.p. Kenneth Zunder, and Johnston's perfectly cloying score. The acting leaves a bit to be desired: Malick is hilarious; Wight is endearing; Rebecca Creskoff ("Hung"), who plays Mary's friend and fellow ex-"dancer," is refreshingly natural.
The New York Times - Mike Hale
A number of talented performers are stymied by this mediocre material.
Orlando Sentinel - Roger Moore
Director Michael W. Watkins, whose decades of TV credits go back to "Quantum Leap," manages one clever visual gag - a bus wreck, observed from the far side of a cornfield. We hear a crunch, see a telephone pole wobble and a little puff of smoke. Then Watkins blows the moment with a fiery overkill.
The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
This lame comedy about a big doofus who enters the fight game manages to take every cliche in the book and render them even more cliched.
New York Post - Kyle Smith
A 2010 movie that could have been made in 1940.

Knucklehead (2010)

The film centers on a fight promoter (Mark Feuerstein) deeply in debt to his crooked rival. Desperate for a new fighter that will help him win back everything he owes, the promoter catches a break when a 450-pound church handyman (Paul "Big Show" Wight) who has spent his entire life in an orphanage agrees to wrestle on behalf of his fellow orphans.
