Critic Reviews for You Cannot Kill David Arquette

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (9)

There's no doubting Arquette's sincere desire to learn the sport and craft of wrestling, to get into shape, to resuscitate his career, to make his family proud.

Strange and more than a little sad, You Cannot Kill David Arquette derives most of its strength from the discomfort associated with watching it.

Top Critic

Even for a movie about a theatrical sport, focused around an actor who wants to learn what it's like to wrestle for real, You Cannot Kill David Arquette rings far too much like a vanity project.

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

In the end, big questions linger: Was his ultimate goal achieved? Did he just need enough footage for the film? You're not quite sure, but it's an entertaining ride, and at his heart Arquette is an entertainer. Mission accomplished.

It's as silly and as nakedly needy as Arquette himself, and as theatrical and stagey as any professional wrestling match - but along the way, it also manages to be kind of fun and to make you feel for the goodhearted, sad-sack clown at its center.

There's so much raw pathos on display in this relentlessly entertaining doc that its affecting final moments leave you wishing that Darg and Price had dug even deeper.
