...there eventually does reach a point at which Scott's performance, ingratiating as it is, simply proves unable to compensate for the film's myriad of deficiencies.

A tad too obvious for my liking but then it's a Sean William Scott movie -- so obviously it's obvious. But as a tennis redemption movie (not too many of them around) it stands out for a sense of gruff fun.

Audience Reviews for Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach


Not as terrible as you would expect a movie being played on comedy central to be

Bottom of the barrel idiocy is vulgar, coarse and a total waste of your time. If this is the best work that Seann William Scott can find it won't be long before reality TV for him.

Watched this for Scott really, he's quite a funny guy in the right film but this ain't the right film. There's no real plot here, apart from the obvious sports plot of coach losers to victory against the odds. Nothing really happens in the entire film!! nothing funny, nothing exciting, just some lame toilet humour and Scott's ass in full view. Total waste of time which isn't helped by the fact its based on tennis.
