Bill & Ted's director Stephen Herek gives orders to WWE's Triple H

06.07.2010

After a few flaccid attempts in feature films (SEE NO EVIL, 12 ROUNDS, THE CONDEMNED), the rasslin' masters at WWE are trying a slightly different tactic: comedy.

The Triple H-fronted flick THE CHAPERONE comes from Stephen Herek, who directed 80s faves like BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, CRITTERS and DON'T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD, plus the underappreciated ROCK STAR.

Aside from Triple H (a.k.a., Paul Levesque, a.k.a., Hunter Hearst Helmsley), who had a minor henchman role in BLADE TRINITY, the turnbuckle-free movie features "Modern Family" youngster Ariel Winter, former "X-Files" agent Annabeth Gish, and "Hey, it's that guy" actor Kevin Corrigan (THE DEPARTED, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS).

The synopsis: Ray Bradstone (PAUL "TRIPLE H" LEVESQUE) is the best "wheel man in the business," but he is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, Sally (ARIEL WINTER), and make amends with his ex-wife, Lynne (ANNABETH GISH). As Ray struggles to find honest work, his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (KEVIN CORRIGAN), offers him one last job. He agrees at first, but changes his mind at the last second leaving the crew without a driver. Ray decides instead to serve as a "chaperone" for Sally's school field trip. When the robbery goes awry, Larue blames Ray and chases the school bus all the way to the Museum of Natural History in New Orleans. Ray must deal with Larue, while supervising Sally's class on what becomes one of the craziest school trips ever.

Extra Tidbit: Triple H was once attached to star in an adaptation of the Valiant comic BLOODSHOT.

Would have been a good Conan or Thor. So why does this look like Nanny with Muscles 2? (We don't really need them in regular roles like The Stranger, give em' some roles that actually fit)

Wrestlers DO deserve to be on the big screen by the way. But not in stuff like this. Give me Blaine from PREDATOR, or Thunderlips from ROCKY III, or Nada from THEY LIVE. Hell, even Andre in THE PRINCESS BRIDE.

So this is why Seamus injured Triple H, so he could make a movie. Well regardless of what kind of storyline it is, Triple H is finally getting his due as the wrestler leading a movie guy. Been a fan since he double-crossed X-Pac at WrestleMania 15.

why the 'best wheelman in the business' would have that insane physique is never explained, of course. all that time spent driving really blasted his pecs. I thought Triple H was fine in Blade Trinity as being a pro wrestler he knows how to play the character of a meathead, but this just seems like the sort of film I wouldn't even watch for free when it eventually came on TV.

I hate the way WWE is heading these days with trying to be extremely mainstream. They're whoring themselves out to gain extra attention from different layers of fans. They have all these crappy movies (they're entertaining but crap nonetheless), they're planning on a new animated series, they've watered down their show to a useless PG rating, and they've completely changed the landscape of their craft in the belief that they'll cater to entire families. It's stupid, because it's

It's stupid, because it's sports-entertainment and it's wrestling of all things! It literally promotes violence. I miss the era when they used to openly admit it with dignity. These days it's like '300' trying to come-off as 'Wholesome, family entertainment'...not the case, never will be.

*sigh*. Would be awesome if wrestling went back to being controversial and fun and had 15million viewers instead of a measly 5-6 these days.

Comparing WWE to 300 is ridiculous. Especially when there's no blood. Also, wrestling was for kids when I was growing up.

Anyway, watch the end of RAW.

I did. The end of last night's RAW was fantastic! I stand corrected (till next week). Wrestling still has some awesomeness left in it. I didn't compare WWE to 300...was just saying it would be lame for 300 to market itself as family-friendly. That's what WWE's doing right now...trying to erase its past where there were First Blood matches and people beat the s**t outta' each other. Still a fan, no doubt. Just hoping WWE bucks up. Again, last night's RAW ending was awesome.

I will say

I really enjoyed The Condemned. The scene where Vinnie Jones mows down all the nerds in the tent had me laughing so hard I peed my pants a little.

For this Tripple H biz, this sounds awful.

...sounds terrible. Say what you will about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, but at least he has the charisma to be likeable in movies like this.
