A smashing documentary about quadriplegics in wheelchairs — wait, it's not depressing. These are quadriplegics who play rugby for the U.S. Paralympics team — wait, it's not sappy. Fierce action, foul language and even quad sex come under the microscope of filmmakers Henry-Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro as the film builds to the battle between the U.S. and Canadian teams. Wait — it's not like something you've already seen. It's original, outrageous and murderous fun.
