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

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

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

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