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.
This was the first film that I got to see Trey Parker and Matt Stone (the creators of South Park) in. I must say that I was very impressed. This is a really funny movie! Typical crude and ridiculous humor, but I would expect nothing less from them. lol
Liked it a lot.
The Trey Parker marathon goes on! Again probably not a good film but I like it. That's all that matters.
I dearly love South Park and loved this the first time I watched it many years ago. I've watched it a few times since then and most of the humour, for me, doesn't really stand the test of time.
There are, however, more than enough silly moments that still make me laugh and that's good enough for me.
Not as funny as I remember, but come on, I was probably 12 when I saw it for the first time. It makes me wish Trey Parker had acted more.
Meh, had some funny parts.
No wonder Parker and Stone hated this film.
The opening analysis of team sports in America is way more prophetic and insidious in its condemnation of domestic corruption than at any point in Team America. I mostly dug it.

I love films, and I love heavy metal, but somehow when the two collide the end result is usually substandard…

It's been said that only a handful of cinephiles ever actually looked at the original Hobbes Hundred but each one…
