Reginald "Sweet Daddy" Siki was considered one of the most charismatic figures in professional wrestling. Sweet Daddy, a black man with an incredible physique, bleached blond Afro and matching mustache, strutted before the camera in sequin robes, a mirror in each hand, characterizing himself as "Mr. Irresistible." Siki broke color barriers and social boundaries, contributing dramatically to professional wrestling and to entertainment. As a wrestler, Siki played many roles. Sometimes, he was a baby-face, or good guy. Other times, he was a heel, or villain. Because of his understanding of crowd psychology, he played both roles masterfully. In Canada, Siki became a household name among fans and a legendary figure among wrestlers. Rocky Johnson, a wrestler of note, eventually became Siki's most loyal student. Years later, Rocky Johnson's son, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, would incorporate Sweet Daddy's lessons into his own repertoire. Siki's many famous fans include Winnipeg-bred Chris Jericho and WWE's the Edge (Adam Copeland). Out of the spotlight, Siki remains a quiet gentleman and family man with rich ties to his Toronto home and communities, and great fans among today's wrestling elite. Sweet Daddy Siki is the documentary film that tells his story: the story of a gentlemen performer with a keen and fascinating perspective on life as a polarizing black entertainer and on modern wrestling. 82-year-old Reginald Sweet Daddy Siki lives in Toronto where he runs karaoke nights at the The Duke Live, a locally famous Toronto pub. Each week, he is surrounded by fans and friends.

Here's a fine example of a film that may makes up for an exciting watch due to its director Harvey Glazer extra-ordinary sense of creating spectacles that feel like breathing artworks.

Five stars. It is what it is. Not gonna win any oscars, but much more fun than most oscar winners. Suspend your disbelief, sit back, and enjoy. And try not to take life too seriously.

First off I just want to stress that this is absolutely the kind of film you want to see on the big screen; don't wait for it to come out on DVD! Needless to say, the cast was phenomenal: Charley Pride, Bret Hart! They are born for these roles
