When a small delivery of casual swearing from Seymour Cassell earns your movie's biggest laugh, there's definitely a problem.

This is a foul ball of a comedy -- a raunchy, raucous frat party.

Sitting through this film is like spending the night in that sleazy bar you swore you'd never go in, not even to use the bathroom.

a whole lot of lewd potty humor that doesn't really add up to anything substantial, a guilty pleasure of sorts when taken in small bursts, but which grows somewhat tiresome in the long run

Doesn't contain the average laugh quotient of half of Lange's daily Stern appearances, but its also far less obnoxious than non-fans would expect it to be.

The sort of lowbrow sports comedy best enjoyed on a 50-inch screen with a six-pack, a bucket of wings and a fast-forward button.

Does the movie hit a home run? Hardly. But it's at least a single.

The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable.

Artie Lange, Howard Stern's radio sidekick, somehow manages to make beer-league softball seem no fun at all in this extremely lowbrow comedy.

A cavalcade of colorful profanity, bachelor-party hooker gags ... and shopworn bodily function jokes, this vehicle for Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange is slob comedy at its slobbiest.

The experience of watching this loosely plotted comedy set in the suburbs of New Jersey is somewhat akin to spending a nice summer day playing softball with your friends. Only without the sun, the fresh air, the exercise or the fun.

Beer League is raunchy and tacky, but it's a hell of a lot funnier than something like Failure To Launch.

Beer League is not for tender ears, but more for the beer-bellied, rascally rule breaker in all of us, and most importantly, there's a great chance something in here will make you laugh.
