The Ringer Trailer (2005)

"A young guy's only option to erase a really bad debt is to rig the Special Olympics by posing as a contestant." 23 December 2005 Comedy 94 mins

Pressured by a greedy uncle (Brian Cox) and a pile of debt, lovable loser Steve Barker (Knoxville) resorts to an unthinkable, contemptible, just-crazy-enough-to-work scheme. He pretends to be mentally challenged to rig the upcoming Special Olympics and bring home the gold. But when Steve's fellow competitors get wise to the con, they inspire him to rise to the greatest challenge of all: becoming a better person.
