    I almost didn't recognize Melissa Rauch from Big Bang Theory, who plays Hope, until she started to speak. There's no mistaking that voice! The movie is about Hope, an Olympic bronze medal winner in gymnastics, who had an injury during the competition that kept her from competing again, so she plays her third place victory it for all it's worth in her small Ohio town, getting free food and other stuff, but she is a rotten, spoiled, foul-mouthed selfish b***h who has no job and lives off her dwindling trust with her father, who she treats as badly as other people. Her father cuts off her $500 a week allowance because the trust is almost gone. When her ex instructor passes away, leaving a new Olympic hopeful stranded and despondent, She takes over her training after receiving a letter from her ex instructor saying she will get half a million dollars if she completes Maggie, the Olympic aspirants training. Reluctantly, she takes over, but after a while, she starts to enjoy it. If you can stand a lot of swearing (a LOT) then you may enjoy this movie!

    This is a funny movie. Sure, it's crass and mean-spirited and the story isn't that great, but I laughed plenty. If this would have come out 15 years ago, it would be hailed as a classic (like Bad Santa). We've changed as a society I guess - I'm not saying that's a bad thing - but one of the causalities (evidently) was comedies like this one.

    it looked funny from the preview so I got it. spent most of the movie angry because of what a horrible person she was (albeit hilarious at the same time), but by the end it comes full circle. hard to reconcile her in this role with Bernadette in Big Bang Theory, but she is absolutely hysterical. if you like dry, sarcastic humor then this is your movie.

    I can't believe this is the same Melissa Rauch from The Big Bang Theory, she's amazing in this comedy. She talks down and dirty throughout the movie and she's hilarious. The supporting cast is also good, you'll recognize most of them, especially Sebastian Stan from Captain America. This is a funny, raunchy take on the gymnastic scene.

    It's a hysterical comedy with a secondary personal plot. Didn't know Melissa Rauch , but after this movie , i won't forget her comedy acting skills. Olympic life with its highs & lows. Has a good known supporting cast . Rauch owns the comedic genius verbal banter. Laughter will be every few seconds.

    I'm not a big fan of gymnastics but this movie definitely puts a funny spin on the sport. Melissa Rauch definitely steps away from her Big Bang Theory character in this one! Its a good comedy, glad I bought it.

    This is a fair movie, I am glad I waited for it to reach DVD. Problem is Melissa Rauch tried to show she could do more than Bernadette and I fell she went to far. I enjoyed the story but the in your face sexually was to much for my taste.

    The Bronze is an incredibly hilarious movie. A former Olympic hero who can't seem to let go of her past accomplishments/entitlements...gets a rude awakening. Great cast, laughs throughout, and raunchy. Worth a watch or three.
