Gym Comedy Dumbbells Is Surprisingly Sweet at Its Core

Granted, we're living in a post-Pain & Gain world, so any movie about gym culture made by people who aren't utter misanthropes is a breath of fresh air, but Dumbbells manages to be pleasant and largely inoffensive despite early indications that it might turn into a T&A-fest.

Working at a run-down gym, failed college basketball player Chris (Brian Drolet) clashes with the gym's new owner, former male model Jack (former male model Hoyt Richards, recently seen in Showgirls 2: Penny's f...

Shake Those “Dumbbells” With Your “Voice”

Brian Drolet and Jordan Eubanks, writer and producer of the forthcoming comedy “Dumbbells,” are counting on this confluence of Hollywood randomness to intrigue movie buyers and future viewers. The buddy comedy, slated to be released in 2012 stars Drolet and Mircea Monroe and is directed by Chris Livingston. Actor Carl Reiner, a friend of the family, heard about the picture through Livingston, and also signed on. In fact, Eubanks and Drolet and producer Barry Katz made no bones about exhausting personal relationships and calling in favors, be it enlisting TV stars Tom Arnold and Jay Mohr, comedian Andy Milonakis or former “The Voice” contestant Frenchie Davis. In fact, it’s how they got their movie on Katz’s radar, who lent credibility and support to the story of a former basketball star who blows out his knee and is relegated to working in a rundown Los Angeles gym.
