About The Ringer


In an extreme case of desperate men resorting to desperate measures, Steve Barker (Johnny Knoxville) and his friend sink to an all-time low.  In order to pay off a debt, the pair bet on the Special Olympics, in which Steve poses as a mentally challenged athlete.  He soon discovers, however, that the real athletes outclass him not only in ability, but in every other conceivable way as well. In an attempt at redemption, Steve joins forces with the athletes to dethrone the arrogant, reigning champion of the Games. The athletes train Steve in their own unique but effective way, and in the process he learns to be more of a human being and less of a jerk.
