...a pervasively uneven comedy that just isn't able to overcome its various deficiencies...

It's Bill Murray who easily swipes the picture -- he's at his unctuous best as Ernie McCracken, an oily bowler with an ego as enormous as his libido.

Kingpin makes inspired comedy by channeling the Weber spirit-and the humble reality of the circuit-through the frame of an inspirational sports movie.

The combination of the overkill factor and a basic mean-spiritedness finally sinks it for me.

I found the sleazy comedy more tedious than watching an actual bowling match.

Ends up with a seven-ten split between hilariously tasteless and just plain distasteful.

It's funny in parts in a tasteless, Farrelly Brothers way. Freedy Johnston's incidental music provides one of the 90s most pleasing scores.

Has plenty of clever sight gags and outrageous jokes you can't help laughing at, no matter how hard you resist.

With maybe 25 belly laughs, the brazenly crude Kingpin is often uproarious, but be forewarned that its creators apparently conceived it underneath a limbo bar. How looow can a funny guilty pleasure go?
