Rumble follows the story of two underdogs, "fighting" for their place in the world.  Winnie Coyle loves her hometown and idolizes her father - a famed wrestling coach who dies along with his star monster wrestler when she is very young.  When the stadium that was named after her father and has been central to her town for years is threatened, Winnie takes it upon herself to find and coach the next wrestling superstar.  In her quest to find that superstar, she meets Steve The Stupendous.  Steve is busy throwing matches in another town, but Winnie recognizes something in him that Steve doesn't even see in himself.  When he finds himself in a bit of tight spot with his boss, Steve agrees to go with Winnie and try to right his own situation.  What follows next is a journey that strengthens each of them in ways they didn't even know they needed.

Take a look at the best quotes from Rumble here!

Will Arnett voices Steve and his comedic flair carries the film.  Regardless of who you are, I think you'll find yourself relating to this character at some point during the film.  He's lovable, quirky, flawed, and genuine in a way that is deeper than most animated characters are developed.  The other star of the show, Winnie Coyle, voiced by Geraldine Viswanathan, is spunky and determined.  She presents a positive role model for kids as her character fights for her family, her town, and her friends.

Rumble was set for a theatrical release, but changed to an exclusive Paramount+ release in late November.  If you haven't yet signed up for the Paramount+ streaming service and have little ones at home, it may be worth a look with some great quality animated movies including The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run and PAW Patrol: The Movie.  Rumble adds to that solid collection of family films available to stream on Paramount+ - and with the added convenience of being able to have a movie night in your jammies from the comfort of your couch!

Overall, Rumble is an enjoyable movie to watch as a family with action, laughs, and plenty of good messages for kids.  I was surprised how much I enjoyed the film and would definitely recommend to families!
