Like its amiable, irresistible ménage, 'Fighting With My Family' softens its rougher edges with humor. It?s often broadly funny but never mean or patronizing; it takes the Knights, their eccentricities and quixotic aspirations seriously, but not enough to squelch the fun.

Most of the movie's narrative moves are as choreographed as any undercard match ? and the outcome as clearly forecast ? but the tears brought on by the movie?s last ten minutes of rhinestoned 'Rocky' triumph taste salty, and real.
