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.
Making the sports comedies of the Happy Madison gang ("Happy Gilmore," "The Benchwarmers," etc.) look like high art, David Zucker's "BASEketball" leaves much to be desired. Powered by Matt Stone and Trey Parker of "South Park" fame, the film swings for the fences with a blend of inane humor, low-ball gags, and gross-out shenanigans. The comedy offers a few semi-solid laughs, but it strikes out again and again.
Revolving around a duo who invent a sport and see it attain heights of glory, Stone and Parker attempt to bring the humor of their quaintly animated TV show to the big screen. While it is amusing to see creators of the famed voices live and in person, the story is pure…
The guys who created a bunch of animated school kids which either created controversary or made people laugh in their homes. Then created a movie which had me in stitches all the way through. Another movie which had me in tears was the Puppet's that sung tunes and battled Kim-Y-S.
This movie was funny in places but too damn silly for its own good. It's a great idea and the pair work well together. Some of the jokes come thick and thin but mostly not funny.
Nice to see Trey does the voice of Cartman in one scene.
Stick to the animation please fellas.

Completely ridiculous - the best kind of comedy.
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.
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.
The enjoyment you get out of BASEketball comes from relating to the main characters, Coop and Remer, like they were just two guys you knew from high school. It's understandable that it's a hit or miss for a lot of people, but that classic Parker/Stone satire is there, and it helped them gain the fame that they have today.
They let us get our money back.
I love anything that Trey and Matt are involved in, and this movie is no different. Such a dumb, funny movie. Love it, though.
Huge guilty pleasure of mine. There was a time a few summers ago where I would watch this so often that I could practically quote the whole movie. I have no idea if it's actually that funny or I was just stupid.
South Park guys tho so I'd be surprised if it's not funny at all.
matt stone is hot D:
If you guys rip on me 13 or 14 more times, I'm outta here
A capsule of pure enjoyment. Don't know how many times I watched this in my teens. It's still funny every time, no matter what you think.
Actually rated 6/5 if you factor in the patented Greg Grunberg bonus point.
Still as funny now as it was when I was 13 years old.

In all honesty I went into this film with particularly low expectations. I enjoy Trey and Matt, but I just didn't think they'd be able to pull off a whole movie as leading men. And for the first twenty minutes, I started to fear that that was the case.
But it actually grows on you. Just takes a while to subvert yourself into the universe. I dig the setup and play of the game, which surprised the hell out of me.
Best part of the film: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Hands down.
Worst part of the film: Every minute before they invent BASEketball.
Guilty Pleasure Moment: Jenny McCarthy layin' some carpet.
Films that I consider to be underrated, underseen, or unfairly judged by critics and/or the general viewing public.
I want to watch a fun movie.
I love arthouse films, but sometimes I just want to have fun, so…
