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.

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

Strange as it may seem, David Zucker ends up being the steadying influence which reins in Parker and Stone.

[A] funny, gleefully offensive spoof of professional sports.

It's filled with solid comic performances, equally effective as both physical and verbal buffoonery.

Sick, twisted, and very funny, Parker and Stone have arrived. Again.

This movie is downright damn silly, and it's funny...all the way through to the other side.

Adolescent boys, or anyone who loves the idea of an extended argument using only the word 'dude,' will no doubt best appreciate BASEketball.
