This review is from: Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story (DVD)
Ask anyone who has had the opportunity to see this film as it meandered its way through the indie festivals, and they will tell you that this hilarious little gem has kept many an audience in stitches and should have found distribution a long time ago. Not only is the material fresh and off-the-cuff with improvisation-o-plenty, but the story is one that is easy to relate too while at the same time being so absurdly over-the-top that one cannot help but let out a snicker at how paintball gets the full mockumentary treatment, though in a unique style differentiated from those of the "Guest" lineage (Spinal Tap, Mighty Wind,Best In Show, etc...). If you are a fan of improv then you will appreciate the pedigree of this cast, many of which have gone through the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Troupe, and have also made appearances on Comedy Central, SNL, and MAD TV. The talent is there, and these folks use it to their fullest - so much so that you focus on the characters, and not the shoe-string budget that put this film into the ranks of an instant cult favorite.
