Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story Reviews

Matthew Turner

An enjoyable Friday night comedy that delivers several decent laugh-out loud gags, even if it's not the movie it could have been with a more thought-out script.

You have to respect a movie that wears its shortcomings proudly on its sleeve

This is funny stuff, not quite on par with Zoolander, but well worth a look.

Movie Gazette

In this goofball sportsfilm spoof there is something for everyone to laugh at - but a few too many cringeworthy own-goals.

None of the character of, say, a Will Ferrell movie, or the cyncial wit of Harold and Kumar.

The movie dodges laughs as rapidly as it panders for them.

Thurber and his picture-perfect cast manage to deliver a very entertaining and fast-paced 96 minutes.

Shadows on the Wall

It helps to have energetic and gifted actors, but you really need to give them funnier things to do and say.

Dodgeball, I am shocked to say, rewards you for paying attention. It also rewards you for having totally juvenile sensibility, so it's really win win.

Entertaining and funny, despite being loaded with clichés and groin humor.

Dodgeball ducks most filmmaking no-nos and manages to serve up a light-hearted treat.

A non-stop gagfest around a subject that has no right to be funny.

...silly, illogical and downright brainless fluff that, for one reason or another, manages to be both funny and charismatic all the way through.

Zoolander fans will love every minute of this movie. The rest of us can wait until it comes out on video.

Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)

A sophomoric, broad-strokes farce, one with likeable characters and an abundance of heart, not to mentions wrenches to the head and balls to the groin.

a pretty hilarious movie thanks to Stiller's willingness to let himself look like a complete idiot just for laughs

A comedy with a crazy bounce, but only if you're willing to dodge the dumb, dodgy jokes.
