Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story


Peter LaFleur’s (Vince Vaughn) decrepit gym is about to be swallowed by White Goodman’s (Ben Stiller) impersonal chain of gyms; winning a major dodge ball tournament could save it. We all know the formula, but itā€™s easy to ignore that fact; many of the relatively lowbrow jokes are funny and the cast carries the film. The stars are amusing as two opposites in the world of self-improvement and they’re supported by a motley gang of nerds who are ready to fight for their oasis. Also worth a look are Gary Cole and Jason Bateman as the stereotypical commentators at the tournament.Ā

Cast: Ben Stiller (White Goodman), Vince Vaughn (Peter LaFleur), Christine Taylor (Kate Veatch), Rip Torn, Justin Long, Stephen Rootā€¦ Gary Cole, Hank Azaria, Jason Bateman.
