Yesterday my wife and I rented Dodgeball. It had looked funny, but maybe stupid, so we waited for the DVD.
All in all I’d have to say it was a lot of fun. They worked hard to make something like Dodgeball look like a serious sport, while obviously mocking themselves for it. Ben Stiller was fabulous, and Stephen Root is my hero.
The tournament is covered on ESPN 8 (“The Ocho”) along with other sports like squirrel water skiing. There’s a plethora of cameo’s which add a nice touch.
It was silly, but we had a lot of fun with it. Worth a good laugh for sure.
