“No Holds Barred.”

This may well be the pinnacle of wrestling cinema, if not film in general. Written by Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan during the height of ’80s Hulkamania, this movie is pure comedy gold. Want proof? Look up the phrase “No Hold Barred Dookie,” and prepare to laugh as hard as you’ve ever laughed. Apart from that scene, the movie is just one ridiculous cliche as it moves from scene to scene, but the Hulk‘s acting skills are such that all of the scenes are unintentionally hilarious. After watching “The Wrestler,” you need a film like this to perk you up.

Mil Mascaras vs. the Aztec Mummy.”

Mil Mascaras was a legit star in Mexico, and he has over twenty films to his credit. However, this gem features the Man of a Thousand Masks doing battle with a mummy, using all sorts of “lucha libre” wrestling moves to dispatch the undead. This movie is for anyone who thought “Abbot and Costello Meet The Wolfman” was too sober for them and wanted something crazier. If you can’t laugh at a man doing flying body attacks to a mummy, then you may have funny bone. Or maybe, you watched “The Wrestler” one too many times, and now you’re incapable of being happy.
