Only real men play dodge ball
"Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" is one of the funniest films I've seen last year. The movie is essentially a parody of several sports films about the underdog defying impossible odds. In the film, Vince Vaughn plays an "average joe" who plays a owner of a small gym called Average Joes. However, Ben Stiller comes along with his conglomerate, Global Gym, and threatens to buy out Vince's gym unless he can come up with fifty thousand dollars in a few weeks. As luck would have it though, Vince and his friends join a dodgeball tournament to win the money, but Global Gym enters to try to stop them in their tracks. Ben Stiller is still his comedically funny self without the toilet humor this time (thank god), and Vince manages to remain his usually funny yet slightly sarcastic at times humor alive. Both actors are able to create alot of great chemistry like when they argue in the bar, and Ben just repeats everything Vince says. I couldn't stop laughing histarically while watching it. However, that's not to say this film is perfect. The script is extremely predictable and can be a tad silly at times, but hey its parody like comedy so screw logic. It may not have as much substance as other comedies like "Rushmore" or "Life Aquatic", but it makes you laugh so it's worth watching.
