You can't help feeling that the whole project must have begun as an off-the-cuff joke which some studio executive took seriously and greenlighted.

I was bored well before the end, but found the first half hour pretty funny.

Their incessant, obscene banter is meant to be endearing; their total lack of presence makes it simply annoying.

What kind of movie is it where Yasmine Bleeth is the best thing about it?

Is it dumb? You bet. Is it funny? Sporadically.

The vulgar, obvious humor of Zucker brother David and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone elicits easy, guilty laughs, yet the material has an underlying innocence that's just shy of good clean fun.

With writing like this, can an Academy Award be far behind?

There's plenty of ammunition for a satire of pro sports -- and BASEketball isn't it.

I have a terrible confession to make: I laughed myself silly at BASEketball.

the studio should have furnished each ticket-buyer with a free six-pack. ... Putting it in an alcohol-free theatrical setting makes about as much sense as packing a suitcase for your trip to Nudestock.

The kind of flick that serves itself up as the object of its own satire.

If you're old enough to see this movie without a parent or guardian and all that sounds encouraging, this review has failed, and failed badly.

Degenerates into a tedious series of unamusing and rather forced gross-out gags.

The chief problem is this film is too much in love with itself, too much in awe at what they can get away with.

BASEketball is a dog of a movie and that anyone paying to see it is hurting for a life. But then, you knew that.
