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.
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…
Completely ridiculous - the best kind of comedy.
"We gotta get jobs. Then we get the khakis. Then we get the chicks."
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,…
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.
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.
The quintessential sports comedy about a fictional sport, showcasing Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s considerable writing talent, and perhaps less considerable acting talent, it’s nevertheless a hilariously twisted and ridiculous laugh-fest.
"Tough break, Squeak."
"Yeah, now you gotta fetch the ball, bitch."
Immature humor and the guys that created South Park. Matt Stone and Trey Parker are genius. They haven't made a bad movie yet.
If you like south park, then you will like this film. The two creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are a comedy duo that I could only wish they would of made more films, and the producers of naked gun films which if you are aware are masters of including comedy in the background while main dialogue is beign acted in front of the screen. throughout the whole film you can also notice Parker and Stones' south park characters voices by just speaking. Both of them in this film resemble Stan and Kyle and the chemistry between the two longtime buddies.
Features a number of entertaining scenes that are probably balanced by the sheer inanity of the rest of the movie.
A pretty stupid movie. Watched this while I was sick, on Netflix. It's really dumb funny and pretty much not worth your time. I only watched cause I was brain dead and somehow curious. The only good thing about it is that it does well at knowing it's a fucking stupid movie.
Cheesy 90s gross-out comedy that feels a bit dated now, but with Trey Parker and Matt Stone from South Park it's still pretty entertaining. Plus, real-ass Bob Costas says the line "YOU'RE EXCITED? FEEL THESE NIPPLES!" so that's a bonus.
This movie is funny, it's an okay movie overall but probably won't be watching it again. Still funny though.
