Cast: Brian Drolet, Hoyt Richards, Taylor Cole, Mircea Monroe, Fabio. Director: Christopher Livingston

Leave your brain out of the movie hall, before you enter if you want to enjoy a few forced laughs. This movie is so not in sync with today’s audiences, and completely unappealing to an Indian audience. This buddy comedy centers on the relationship between Chris a former NCAA basketball star whose career got derailed on his way to the pros, and Jack, the new owner of the rundown gym in which he’s now working as a lowly trainer. Jack, a former male supermodel, intends to use the gym as a setting for a reality show starring his buddy Fabio, renaming it “Dumbbells” and outfitting the staff with skimpy outfits.

But his plans go awry when his finances suddenly go bust. So he and Chris form an alliance to get things back in motion, with the latter motivated in no small part by his romantic feelings for Jack’s comely niece.

Featuring inconsequential, unfunny cameo appearances by the likes of Tom ArnoldCarl Reiner,Jay MohrJaleel White and, of all people, Nancy Olson (Oscar-nominated for Sunset Boulevard), the film features an endless procession of vulgar sight gags and one-liners, with most of them failing to score. But their sheer volume inevitably produces some amusing moments, and the two leads display a winning comic chemistry. Dumbbells may indeed be dumb, but at least it’s not heavy-lifting.

Our take: Miss this Gym session for sure!
