About the Movie

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, is a film that grabs life by the ball. Peter LaFleur (Vince Vaughn), is a charismatic underachiever and proprietor of a rundown gym called Average Joe’s. The facility’s clientele of decidedly less-than-average Joes is made up of a self-styled pirate, a scrawny nerd (Justin Long) who dreams of impressing an unattainable cheerleader, an obsessive aficionado of obscure sports, a dim-witted young man, and a cocky know-it-all who, of course, really knows nothing. Peter’s humble gym catches the eye of White Goodman (Ben Stiller), the power-mullet-sporting, Fu-Manchu-d, egomaniacal owner of Globo Gym, a gleaming monolith of fitness. White intends to take over Average Joe’s, and Peter’s non-existent bookkeeping is making it all too easy for him. A foreclosing bank has stationed attorney Kate Veatch (Christine Taylor) inside Average Joe’s to finalize Globo’s takeover of the gym. Peter’s boyish charm wins her over and Kate joins his team of social rejects to beat the odds.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Direct hit! – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: This masterpiece of modern cinema depends upon a single truism: A guy getting hit in the nuts a hundred times in a row is funny a hundred times. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 5, 2008

Fresh: Gleefully commingles slapstick and scatology, satire and sentiment, in a free-wheeling farce aimed at making auds laugh until they're thoroughly ashamed of themselves. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Yes, the movie's watchable, and there are about six good laughs in it, but six good (not great) laughs in 90 minutes is pretty paltry for a comedy. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Dodgeball: A True GREATNESS Story!

This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen in my life. It as great actors, dialogue and humor to bring out the Dodgeball fan in you. I wish you could buy instead of just rent the movie. But I give it 4 stars just for that.
