[Is it] good? Heavens, no. But it has its seedy charms.
Comedians like Will Ferrell, Jack Black and Ben Stiller can get away with lesser material because just looking at them can elicit laughs. Dan Fogler is not in that category.

| Original Score: 1.5/5
A horrendously written and acted movie which even Walken can't save.
| Original Score: 1/5
A daft, disappointing comedy.
This comedy raises the odd laugh, largely from an absurd appearance by Christopher Walken as a sinister martial-arts kingpin villain.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's a hodge-podge of Enter The Dragon and Blades Of Glory, yet infinitely worse than either. In short, a film about bouncing balls with the bounce of an anvil.
Cut a ping-pong ball in half, draw a large black dot in the centre of each then carefully insert around your eye-sockets- you'll raise more laughs than this film manages.
Enter The Dragon meets Shaolin Soccer meets Dodgeball - just with infinitely smaller balls. A camp turn from Christopher Walken astounds but it'll be funnier if you wait for the DVD and lubricate it with a six-pack. Or three.
CGI-assisted ping pong and lame gags about dead pandas, simpering homos and 'Antiques Roadshow'.
| Original Score: 1/6
Balls of Fury isn't quite as funny as it thinks it is, but there are some good gags and it's worth seeing for Christopher Walken's performance.
| Original Score: 3/5
Bad acting, writing and jokes... Apart from a few funny gags that save this from one-star ignominy.
It's good natured enough, but laughs are thin on the ground.
In perhaps the movie's sole bit of irony, it completely lacks what it boasts so furiously--balls.
| Original Score: 0/4
A good-natured, easy-to-take goof.
| Original Score: 3/4
There are just enough interesting characters, along with dozens of fresh ideas relating to ping-pong, to keep the audience along for the ride.
| Original Score: B+
Slapstick ping-pong comedy has very slight bounce.
Ancient Chinese saying: tiny ball with no laugh, make bad movie.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
