Editorial Reviews

Try as he might, Cliff Starkey just can’t keep out of trouble. With a dead-end career, there’s not much that makes him want to get out of bed in the mornings… except his one passion: Lawn Bowls. Almost as soon as he learned how to walk, he displayed a genius for the sport. To the dismay of the elderly, uptight bowls fraternity in town, Cliff honed his mastery of the game alone, playing by no one’s rules but his own. Now, the time has come for his skill to be recognized, and Rick Schwartz (Vince Vaughn), an American sports agent, is going to ensure that this ‘Bad Boy’ of bowls gets the spotlight he deserves. Cliff’s rock ‘n’ roll attitude and army of screaming female fans soon take England by storm, and he finds himself on the way to super-stardom! But can he take on the stuffy, business-like attitude of the Bowls Association and his senior arch-rival, Ray Speight? Starkey is only one match away from super-stardom as he joins forces with Ray in a ball-busting championship showdown!

A good family movie and satisfying time waster.
Brian P. Jones
The plot was trying to make fun of dodgeball, but in the end the laughter was really Weak.
Brockie B
It had a good story and a descent plot ulike many of the other movies.

Totally watchable and enjoyable film, both for it's comic and dramatic aspects. A nice change to see a film that doesn't feature a car chase or a bullet-proof leading man. Also worth mentioning is the soundtrack, with features a nice selection of classic rock tunes. The "Won't Get Fooled Again" segment alone warrants seeing this film!

This movie was originally released in Britain in 2003, probably before Dodgeball was even filmed. I say that because there exists the sentiment that this was somehow a spin-off.

Anyways, the concept of a movie about bowls drew my roommate and I to the theater when in London. We had no idea what to expect and wer pleasently suprised to see Vince Vaughn. His character was entertaining as were all the others. In the British context it was pretty funny... very very bizarre though.

I ordered this DVD thinking that it was the British comedy about lawn bowling like the above reviewer thought. This is NOT that movie! This is a very dark movie about a racist character, etc. according to the back. The comedy is only available through Amazon UK that I've found if your player can play that region. I've already returned this one and ordered the British one.

I'm torn as to whether to label this as the most unfunniest comedy ever, for I have "Disorderlies" with the Fat Boys and "Private Resort" with Johnny Depp and Rob Morrow to contend with. Regardless, as lame as most of the recent National Lampoon titles have been as of late, this one certainly takes the cake of being the most unwatchable. Mel Smith (the co-writer/director) apparently has a few good friends, for I can't imagine any other reason as to why James Cromwell and Vince Vaughn would even think to sign on to something this ridiculously bad (although they, to their credit are only featured in supporting roles). To sum it up briefly, this movie takes a predictable and watered-down "Dodgeball" approach, punishes you with creating the most annoying main character in history (and yes, he is more annoying than Pauly Shore, Yahoo Serious, Jerry Lewis and Pee-Wee Herman have done on their worst day), wastes your time by featuring an incredibly dull sport and fails to muster one single laugh out of the proceedings. Being a Vince Vaughn fan, I was expecting this to be one of those "under-the-radar" flicks that I would be happy to uncover. Instead, I'm left wishing that I didn't waste my time watching it----and I only sat through the whole thing because I had a morbid curiousity to see if it was possible for the film to fail on all accounts. Well, that's the one factor in which this movie succeeded. Zero stars for this one. Avoid it.

This movie, based on a true story, was enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately, it is not closed-captioned so many hearing-impaired people will not be able to watch it.

This movie is a surprise. Much funnier than you would expect with great characters. I really liked this movie a lot.

THis is a very good movie. National Lampoon movies are very funny movies. I bought this movie for cheap and it was worth what I paid.
