Critic Reviews for A League of Ordinary Gentlemen
It's a workmanlike film, but by the time two of the above bowlers are rolling against each other for the PBA championship, Browne has the audience sweating every spare.
After a few flourishes of Errol Morris-like editing, first-timer Browne settles into a tone resembling the ESPN telecasts so crucial to the PBA's revenue stream, thriving on the intrinsic drama of competition and the league's emerging star system.
The film is part nostalgia, part wary tale of wasted youth and part underdog struggle.
Manages to be funny, sad and as informative as you'd want any movie about bowling to be.
It's a curious movie, in the best sense, acknowledging that everybody is obsessed with something, then finding out why this particular group of people is obsessed with this particular pastime.
Audience Reviews for A League of Ordinary Gentlemen
A League of Ordinary Gentlemen is a great doc about pro bowling. Also, the only doc about pro bowling. 6.5/10
Youd think a documentary about bowling would be boring but I was suprised how much I enjoyed this flick.Great documentary
Everyone's gone bowling, which is I guess why almost anyone can relate to this documentary. I still haven't heard much about the PBA Tour so I think bowlers are still struggling in that aspect. The film, however, was really interesting with all the crazy characters of the Tour. Walk into any bowling alley and I can picture any of these guys there. The final match was pretty close and made for good suspense, too bad it didn't take off in the TV ratings.
