Week five is time for one of the big categories: comedy. I'm hoping for some good nominations.
Two guys invented a game... and turned the sports world upside down!
Two losers from Milwaukee, Coop & Remer, invent a new game playing basketball, using baseball rules. When the game becomes a huge success, they, along with a billionaire's help, form the Professional Baseketball League where everyone gets the same pay and no team can change cities. Theirs is the only team standing in the way of major rule changes that the owner of a rival team wants to institute.
Seen this film so many times and it never gets old...completely ridiculous comedy staring the dudes who created South Park. I love the idea of them creating a new sport ( why hasn't BASEketball caught on in real life) and the gags are great especially the psych-outs! Must watch comedy
Completely ridiculous - the best kind of comedy.
La peli favorita de mi hermano fue la última bala de David Zucker. Parker y Stone dándolo todo, secundados por "Canijo" Scolari (que ya acompañaba a los southparks en Orgazmo), nos hacen creer con un deporte en el que tú y yo podríamos ser estrellas y que tiene la pista deportiva más bonita del mundo.
Además, se adelantó a otros como Dodgeball o Semi-Pro.
Siempre funciona, sobre todo con ese hallazgo que es el psicofallo.
PD: el Cartman que se marca Parker siempre me ha emocionado.
You may not have heard of BASEketball as its one of those little-seen and hence quite underrated comic gems, very much in the vein of The Naked Gun given the pedigree of David Zucker as director, yet shot through with a filthy, sharp and puerile edge thanks to Trey Parker and Matt Stone in the lead roles, giving the piece the feel of almost a live-action South Park story. Combine these talents and you get some fantastical physical, sight gag and written comedy, even if this is perhaps just too crass to be considered classic.
If you break it down, it's a familiar narrative really - two losers in Parker and Stone make it big creating a riff on basketball,…
This isn't the funniest movie in the world, but it's so goofy and non-serious that I could watch it every day, probably.
I don't know what else to say but.....it's ridiculous, inane, rude, crass, vulgar, stupid. But you know what? Some days that is exactly what I need. And now is one of those times. Also...it stars Yasmine Bleeth. Lovely.
I'll admit it: I just really like listening to Trey Parker and Matt Stone's voices.
I can almost guarantee you that the jokes I like best from this movie were all written by David Zucker.
Funny, funny guys. They have definitely helped define modern comedy, and this film is an example of how they did so.

No sé que tiene esta película, que incluso con su humor soez, nada fino y por líneas generales poco inteligente, consigue hacerme reir y pasar un buen rato.
Quizás la pareja creadora de South Park aun no había dado con la tecla criticona que su más famosa obra ha conseguido construir con los años, aunque ya se dejan ver algunas ideas.
Divertida hasta decir basta.
Two perennial super losers create a sensational new sport by combining basketball with baseball rules. This movie stared off unfunny and horrible but as the movie went along it got better and funner.
Enjoyable cheap laughs, but like every comedy movie is at heart a gigantic pile of self acknowledged feces.
However many times I see this film I laugh just as hard. Just a crazy slapstick spoof comedy film starring the then rising comedy writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
