The Bronze‘ comes from the witty brain of co-creator and star, ‘Big Bang Theory‘ actress, Melissa Rauch. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment delivers the funny and some mind-bending gymnastics to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on August 2. An excellent way to get pumped up for the Rio Summer Olympics on August 5.

A decade ago, Hope Ann Greggory (Melissa Rauch) was America’s sweetheart. Her inspired performance on a ruptured Achilles at the world’s most prestigious gymnastics tournament clinched an unlikely bronze medal for the U.S. team and brought glory to her hometown of Amherst, Ohio. But in the years since that epic third place victory, Hope hasn’t done a whole lot with her life. Still living in her dad Stan’s (Gary Cole) basement, still sporting her daily uniform of a Team USA gym suit with teeny-bopper bangs, ponytail and scrunchie, she spends her days at the mall milking her minor celebrity for free food and favors.

Hope’s routine is upended when she learns that she must coach Amherst’s newest gymnastics prodigy Maggie (Haley Lu Richardson) in order to receive a sizeable financial inheritance. The hard-edged yet insecure Hope is faced with a serious dilemma: does she jeopardize her “hometown hero” status by devotedly training this rising star to achieve the dreams she never could? Or does she attempt to sabotage the impressionable Maggie to ensure that she remains the one and only star in Amherst?

The project snagged the opening night film of Sundance 2015, and follows a washed-up gymnast whose local celebrity status is threatened by a younger athlete whose star begins to rise in town. The film also features Gary Cole (‘Veep, ‘Office Space‘), Thomas Middleditch (‘Silicon Valley‘), Sebastian Stan (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘, ‘The Martian‘), Cecily Strong (‘Ghostbusters‘,’SNL‘), and Haley Lu Richardson (‘Ravenswood‘), with cameos from 1996 U.S. Olympic Gold medal winners Dominique Dawes and Dominique Moceanu, as well as former Russian Gold medalist Olga Korbut.

The trailer is hilarious and I love the fresh idea, and I can’t wait to see this movie! Rauch has always been one of the best parts of ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ and I love how snarky her character could be, this role is snarky x 100!

Movie Quotes

Trudi:
You know how they use that gun to pierce your ears? They don't use that when they pierce your nipples, do they?
Jody:
Forget that gun. That gun goes against the entire idea behind piercing. All of my piercings, sixteen places on my body, all of them done with a needle. Five in each ear, one through the nipple on my left breast, one through my right nostril, one through my left eyebrow, one in my lip, one in my clit... and I wear a stud in my tongue.
Vincent Vega:
Excuse me, but I was just wondering... why do you wear a stud in your tongue?
Jody:
It's a sex thing. It helps fellatio.
Lance:
Don Vincenzo. Step into my office?
