I enjoyed this movie. I was not aware of the story behind the man so this was informative. The character had a bit of OCD which made him likeable.

A interesting film about the eventful life of Ben Weider who help build the sport of competitive bodybuilding,sports nutrition and the fitness magazine business from the early 1940s. His life story is compelling enough that despite the pedestrian direction and average acting your interest is held throughout the film. The creation of the Mr Olympia contest and the discovery of different iconic bodybuilders attritubuted to Weider and his brother Ben were a few surprises you get out of the film. Overall not bad for such a low budget film.

Surprised me. I am one who likes to delve into someone else's world, and you do just that , in this movie. Great story, well written. Acting was a little over the top, but maybe THAT's the real Joe Weider.
