— Chicago Tribune film critic Roger Moore posted a negative review of The Chaperone entitled “‘Triple H’ is so unfunny it hurts.” Echoing the sentiments of numerous wrestling analysts, he feels that Triple H doesn’t have the comedic ability or charisma of fellow wrestling mega-stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson or Hulk Hogan, which in turns makes for an unfunny movie.
“Levesque isn’t over-the-top enough to make his big-guy-disciplines-unruly-kids gags work,” Moore wrote. “And without laughs, we’re left to consider how inane the script is and how it wastes the few actors hired to bring their comedy chops.
“It’s enough to make you throw in the towel on the whole WWE moviemaking cage match.”
