  • ...there eventually does reach a point at which Scott's performance, ingratiating as it is, simply proves unable to compensate for the film's myriad of deficiencies.

  • A tad too obvious for my liking but then it's a Sean William Scott movie -- so obviously it's obvious. But as a tennis redemption movie (not too many of them around) it stands out for a sense of gruff fun.

    A desperate attempt at a writer trying too hard to be funny. Bogged down by such low graded one liners that it leaves little to find humorous. It's a shame that Seann William Scott is in this because in my eyes he could find such better work then this low grade movie. Then again, if it wasn't for him, this movie probably would have had zero appeal as a film. Usually comedies needs more then five good lines, this film i think barely hits three. Maybe I needed to be drunk or on whatever kind of drugs the crew for this movie was on to enjoy it, however, normal minded people should probably stay clear from this lackluster work.

    I had high hopes for Balls Out. It's from the same team that did Dude Where's My Car and the first Harold & Kumar movie. Seann William Scott stars and he's usually pretty funny, I thought maybe this would be kind of like Happy Gilmore, I couldn't have been more wrong. Different people have different opinions on what's funny and what's not, but I really don't see how any sane person could like this shit! It's far past ridiculous and it's just as stupid as it gets. Scott's constant whining and narrating to himself is unbearable, but at least his character had a personality. The supporting cast was pretty much brain dead. Why anyone would want to produce this beyond me, seldom have I seen something this fucking horrible!

    Not as terrible as you would expect a movie being played on comedy central to be
