And not for the squeamish.
I may have been the only one laughing out loud when I saw this in the theater. I remember at least two people walking out sometime during the show. No matter because for me, this ranks as one of the the most brilliant and unique comedies in a long, long time.
The Farelly Brothers, who would return to us in such top form with "There's Something About Mary" give us an insane twist on the comeback-kid story.
Woody Harrelson is Munson, a washed-up former bowling protege who finds a way out in Ishmael, a simple Amish farmer with exceptional skill on the bowling lane. Munson sees the kid as a tool for revenge, for money, for fame -- all the things that were denied him (largely by the hand of his ruthless rival, deliciously played by Bill Murray in one of his funniest supporting roles).
What follows is a practically non-stop series of gags, satire and slapstick that are brilliant in their timing and effect. The Farrelly Brothers give us no mercy as we follow Munson and Ishmael on their journey. But the jokes, many of which border on the surreal, never seem gratuitous. It's just the filmmakers having a total blast, and I for one appreciated it.

"Kingpin" has quickly become a cult-classic, and it is easy to see how it became that. The Farrelly have created a comedic masterpiece with this movie. There are so many funny lines and so many memorable moments. Vulgar, disgusting... and hilarious all the way through, "Kingpin" is a comedy treat that stands out from most of the comedies of today.
Roy Munson was a bowling legend until a hustling gig gone wrong ended up taking his right hand. Now, Munson is an alcoholic mess who can't even afford his rent. Everything seems to be a giant downward spiral for him until he sees somebody who has the potential of becoming the next great bowler that he could've been. That person he sees is Ishmael; a person of Amish decent that secretly goes bowling without his family's knowledge. Munson knows that with this Amish bowler under his watch that they can turn the bowling world upside down...or at least do their best not to "Munson" it all up!
I absolutely love this movie. It is hilarious and clever at the same time. There are sick and vulgar gags, to be sure, but I don't see them as overly gratuitous or annoying. They work for what the film is trying to accomplish. There are many, MANY moments were I am laughing out loud hysterically. Woody Harrelson is terrific as the alcoholic mess, "Roy." Randy Quaid is also a joy to watch, as he always is. Yet, I must admit that the man who simply steals the show without breaking a sweat is Bill Murray. He is brilliantly funny and outrageous in the most subtle of ways. He's always the showstopper without trying too hard. I loved everybody in this movie, but I have to admit that Bill was the one who I was the most impressed with, and he makes the movie what it is.

Tom Keogh slams the movie. What the heck is that all about? This is truly one of my favorite comedies of all time. I have watched this movie probably 30-40 times and I still find it enjoyable. You don't feel like you are watching the movie. The performances, storyline, and perfect soundtrack make you feel as if you are in it. It's true. There is some dumb slapstick humor. At the same time, you start feeling sorry for the characters. As soon as you think they have hit rock bottom, they fall further into the well. I won't spoil the ending. Just give this one a chance and prepare for some good old fashioned "Brunswick" fun. Disco Bowling? That's a good time.

Format: VHS Tape
The Farrelly Bros. have proven themselves to be inspired comic directors that have enormous talent even if their idea of humor is crude and raunchy. Their short career has been filled with ups and downs starring with `Dumb and Dumber' which is so-so, then `Kingpin', which is probably their best, followed by `There's Something About Mary' which has a softer side and a larger audience and then the Jim Carrey misfire `Me, Myself & Irene'. While `Mary' is often thought of as their best, `Kingpin' is in a lot of ways better and has a higher LPM (laughs per minute) average. Quite possibly the funniest movie of the 90's, I'm not saying it's the best comedy, just that it's the most constantly funny. Woody Harrelson is hilarious and so is Randy Quaid as bowling Amish (?) Ishmael. Bill Murray is hilarious and steals almost all his scenes. Vanessa Angel is the super-sexy Claudia, she is the typical sexy female presence that the Farrelly Bros. seem to need to round up the cast, in order they are; Lauren Holly, Vanessa Angel, Cameron Diaz and Renee Zellweger. As for the typical `hair gel' joke we've come to expect from the Farrelly's, this time it deals with Roy `milking a bull' and drinking the `milk'. The film is filled with these jokes that are still hilarious even after repeated viewings. It also features a great soundtrack with songs from Goldfinger and other modern bands. The `bowling sequences' are well made, nicely edited with a great soundtrack, with a heavy dash of humor and exciting as well. Roy loosing the tournament and avoiding the typical ending was a great move and heightens the originality level, which is very high. Peter and Bobby Farrelly are very talented comedy filmmakers and some of their films (at least 2) have become instant comedy classics.Read more ›
