Editorial Reviews

Paintball’s first superstar, Bobby Dukes (Rob Corddry of "The Daily Show"), and his team the River Rats were competing for their fourth "Classic" victory when disaster struck. Bobby, attempting one of his signature moves, was shot. Desperate to stay in the game, Bobby intentionally wiped the paint from his jersey, thus committing paintball’s most heinous crime, "wiping." The three-time champ was banned from the game for ten years and became the laughing stock of the paintball community. Deemed a cheater, disgraced and humiliated, Bobby disappeared.

Ten years later an older and wiser Bobby returns to reclaim his title and erase the memory of his tainted past. On the verge of giving up hope, Bobby joins forces with the most unlikely of allies; the referee that caught him cheating. Now, the two improbable partners must recruit a team of paintball misfits and take back the Hudson Valley Paintball Classic.

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.

If you have trouble discerning a mockumentary from a documentary then you should by all means stay away from this movie. . . I'm looking at you Randy Givens, Mr. I-gave-this-movie-1-star-because-I-thought-it-was-real. But if your brain is working above the level of a newborn then by all means check out this hilarious mockumentary. If you're a fan of The Daily Show, The Upright Citizens Brigade or Human Giant, then this is a must-see treat for you. Rob Riggle will have you in stitches.

This is laugh-out-loud-till-it-hurts type funny. That being said, it's not for everybody. The guy who said it was "crude" clearly doesn't get it, which I can see; some people not getting the humor. I've watched this movie with people who (like myself) laughed non-stop, from start to finish. I've also watched it with people who didn't register more than a chuckle the entire movie (I kept looking over and saying, "That doesn't make you laugh? You don't find that funny?? Really???")

Lurking beneath the apparent "crudeness" lies some very intelligent, biting humor. Fans of the TV show "The Office" will find a lot to like here. It's really more clever than it is crude. You'll need to watch this movie 3 or 4 times to catch every joke and funny line, which is the true sign of a transcendent comedy. When you consider that 95% of the jokes are improv, that makes it even more impressive. We need more movies like this and fewer (none?) "______ Movie" movies.

Kind of funny, a little dry, some paintballers may not like it, but I thought it was funny.

My friends and I saw this movie when it came out in the theater. There were about 8 of us and perhaps 10 "non paintballers" in the theater. We were busting up all over the place having a great time with all the stuff only a baller would get. The other people in the room were not sure what was going on ;)
Now every time we go out of town for a tournament we bring a copy of BOBBY with us and it plays all night long !!!!

This is a great movie!!! The only thing that keeps it out of the 5 star is the language is a bit strong.

Where as Talladega Night's was hard to watch because it was just so... awkward, this was hard to watch because it was really slow. Seemed like they were trying to make a Talledega Night's for other 'sports', but didn't really have jokes worked out before hand. I like paintball a lot, and liked the actors in this movie a lot, I just didn't like the movie, finishing it was a chore

This is one of my favorite "docu-comedies" in the vein of Spinal Tap and Best In Show. If you know anything about the sport of paintball, you'll see this movie as a hoot, with all the right representations of the funny aspects of the sport and the people who play it but, of course, exaggerated to make it even funnier. I (and my paintball playing son) watch it every so often just to crack up. I believe you will too!

It took me a few minutes to figure out that this wasn't a real documentary. This film features a wry kind of humor and its low budget demeanor is actually a plus. I thought it was very entertaining and at times hilarious. This one is 5 stars all the way.
