The jokes fly as wildly as the titular sports gear, landing solidly more often than you'd expect thanks to a fast-paced script and a cast of good-natured misfits led by Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller.

Stiller is in fine form and just watching his exaggerated, paranoid egocentric White is amusing in itself.

Trash comedies such as this are usually more painful than funny, but writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber pulls enough hilarious gags and cameos out of his gym bag to qualify his first feature as the summerâ(TM)s first guilty pleasure.

Stiller gives one of his broadest and best performances to date, and the jokes ping around the screen as fast as the balls on the court.

This masterpiece of modern cinema depends upon a single truism: A guy getting hit in the nuts a hundred times in a row is funny a hundred times.

The film wants only to pit its common-man heroes against a bunch of colorful, laughable adversaries, and achieves this goal admirably.

White Goodman is one of Stiller's craziest creations, a hilariously dim-witted and mean-spirited jock that doesn't realize how pathetic he really is.

I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard at seeing a young man get beaned in the head with a wrench.

...it's got enough laughs in its ninety-odd minutes to justify the time spent on it, which is more than can be said for most recent comedies out of Hollywood.

Provavelmente já terá sido esquecido daqui a um ano - o que não quer dizer que não funcione como um passatempo divertido e descompromissado enquanto dura a projeção.

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.
