A stupid comedy starring the guys who created
Two losers create a variation on basketball mixed
with baseball in which players can unsettle their opponents concentration with vulgar insults and childish pranks.
Juvenile nonsense with a couple of amusing scenes
but it's merely a silly film with a silly plot. At 103 minutes, it really outstays its welcome.
Did You Know:
Trey Parker and Matt Stone agreed to do this film under
the assumption by the time filming began, the animated television series South Park would have already been canceled. It wasn't, and having been committed to both projects, had to attend
principal photography for this project during the day and produce South Park during the night, leaving very little time for any sleep.
