Ross is an out-of-work actor, minimum wage pizza delivery drone, and a really good bowler. His animal-care girlfriend Lindsay has just been fired for causing a crazed penguin orgy. But when their stoner roommate suggests they hit the highway as polyester pimps ‘Ross Vegas’ and ‘Lil’ Reno’, the trio takes the alleys and gutters of the professional bowling tour by storm. Will the pressures of stardom now split their friendship forever or is that just how a playa rolls? Strike is a comedy about big balls, best buds and the cutthroat world of badass bowling.

Did not have any expectations and I was actually more surprised by the supporting roles and cameos than anything else.

We have a rags to riches story via the pro bowling circuit as told by a tightly knit threesome of friends out of LA. The strongest point of this whole film would be the friendship between the leads, but the writing tanked even that strength later. Tara Reid plays the love interest, and sadly enough, people would cringe every time she was on the screen (not believable and not funny). It is corny throughout, but you can tell most people were giving it a solid try.

Vinnie Jones has a one scene appearance playing his over-the-top psycho bowler. Ray Wise (showcased way better in the Reaper series) has a few fatherly scenes, the Revenge of the Nerds Carradine has a brief but twisted role, and a few sets of gratuitous fake boobs make their appearances. Yes, this is the film Tara Reid's brother directs (ripe with plenty of dope) starring the Big P from Sopranos, the infamous Rachel Hunter and the always busy Robyn Lively.

The DVD picture and sound quality are fine, the supplemental five minute feature is more like a bad music video and the cover art has nothing to do with the film (nor is she in it). Not a recommendation but gave it the few stars for the few stars in it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh so so so bad August 28, 2009
Format:DVD
Strike is nowhere near bad enough to be really funny. Sadly, this film is just bad and not terribly funny. The acting so sad.

Two loser / slacker actor wannabes work in a pizza delivery restaurant, Oscarz Pizza. Ha ha, get it, Oscar, as in the Academy Award Oscar. When they deliver pizzas, they deliver the award and the recipient gives an acceptance speach. Yeah, its as funny as the real thing, nowhere even close to funny. Tara Reid is the girlfriend or wife (that's not clear at all) of one of these slackers. And one night slackers number one has the idea to go bowling. Slacker number 2 is apparently very good at bowling, but who knew? By random chance, a Professional Bowling Association person is in the alley; and invites Slacker number 2 to join the tour. Yes it is hilarious. The three decide to go on the PBA tour, but first he has to bowl 36 league rated games and average over 240. Oh the devil to do that in one week. He has to blend in with the leagues he's bowling in. Old people, in da hood hispanics and african americans...oh so funny. The real laughs begin when they make it to the tour. I just don't want to spoil the funny moments by describing what miraculously happens.

There are many reasons to think this might be a movie worth watching. Parody of the PBA. Tara Reid is in the movie. You are a Ross Patterson or Clayne Crawford fan. There's some odd cameos. Or you liked the cover art and thought this might be a spring break, summer drive in, kind of movie. Well it is absolutely none of those things.

Some movies are not meant for the viewer to take too seriously. Some actors, who can be so, so co-o-o-ol know this and just roll with the punches and end up being, along with the film itself, very endearing. Trey Parker is such an actor, better known (as in "Orgazmo", among other movies and TV productions) than Ross Patterson, who plays the starring role in "Strike: Balls of Glory" (the edition viewed being Videoville Showtime, a.k.a. V.V.S. Films, cat. no. 1306). Both, as young men, at any rate, are nice-looking guys, even physically resembling each other to some extent, who rather just miss attaining the standard handsome-devil Hollywood male star look, but who still present a good image on the screen and who are loaded with comic skills and screwball charisma. Underlying all the antics, Ross Patterson, like Trey Parker also, can portray a character who is wonderfully human and sympathetic.

Trey Parker has targeted a part of his fun-making to do comic turns, as actor, screenwriter, producer, and/or director, on stage and in motion pictures, among other subjects of mirth, at Mormons and their missionaries. In "Strike", Ross Patterson, for his part, plays a L.A. slacker who has had aspirations (going nowhere) of being a film actor. Needless to say, he keeps hunger and destitution from his door by doing the usual slacker jo-jo jobs, like flogging mediocre pizza, making, selling, and fancifully delivering it.

What Ross Patterson REALLY excels at doing supremely well is his sports hobby, bowling! Really fantastically good bowling, that is to say (and no less than that), at local bowling allies is what he does with his best buddy, just for fun, after work hours and on weekends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yup, it sure does strike out. December 11, 2013
Format:DVD
Plot.
A loser kid and his friend seem like they have no future, until one of them is spotted by a bowling scout and tells him to go pro. They come up with an idea to be a bowler who is a character and try to make pro bowling popular by turning it into bowlers dressing like they are in the WWE. Along the way he discovers fame and fortune is not as important as the typical things you think, and you can probably work out from here already how the movie ends.

Review.
What a mess of a film. Fist off you think it's going to be a stoner comedy, but all it has is stupid lines and smoke blowing around for a payoff of dumb pizza deliveries. Yeah, you read that right. Then it goes onto a story of friends wanting to become rich, while someone flirts around with the main character like she wants to break up him and his girl because she holds the power to his pro career. Only that scenario just gets forgotten about as it quickly spits out to his success and becoming a celebrity of the game. Why bother doing something that looks like it might be a plot point or something that is key to his relationship, only to cut to later as a celebrity without even a decent montage scene to give you the feeling he has become a success? It's rushed, and you just do not care about this character named Ros Vegas.

The next stupid thing about the film is Ros Vegas has the idea to become a character in the league by acting as a Las Vegas 70's disco queen, with his girlfriend as a side character called Little Reno played by Tara Reid, who looks like an ugly Hentai girl with a pink wig and glitter on her face. 1, it was not sexy, and 2, since when do pro tournaments allow other people other than the players to be ... what's the word for bowling for court-side? Alley-side?
