3 Reasons Why You'll Wanna See 'The Bronze'

You are probably familiar with Melissa Rauch as Bernadette on 'The Big Bang Theory' but I think you might like her as the lead in her new movie 'The Bronze.' While I haven't seen the movie yet, here are 3 reasons (yes, because bronze is 3rd and 3 is a magic number). 

Here's a little about the movie:

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. 

That brings me to my first reason why I will see this movie!


She bangs, she bangs! Just look at that fringe. 

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?

Yup, we talked to Melissa about it, here is what she had to say:

"LeAura! As a huge fan of EverSoPopular I am SO excited to share my new film, THE BRONZE with your audience! I can tell you this is a highly irreverent comedy with a ton of heart featuring a strong female antihero, who is a foul mouthed washed up gymnast who is trying to figure out her life after winning the Bronze medal. The film stars myself, Melissa Rauch, Thomas Middleditch of Silicon Valley, and Sebastian Stan from Captain America who I have an incredibly epic gymnastics sex scene with by the way...(his abs alone are worth the price of admission!) If you like Bad Santa, Bring it On, Election, Napoleon Dynamite- THE BRONZE should be right up your alley. Hope your amazing fans check THE BRONZE out in theaters this weekend!" - Melissa Rauch
