What to know

critics consensus

Baseketball isn't just a succession of fouls thanks to the comedic zip of David Zucker's direction, but sophomoric gags and a lack of performance hustle by Trey Parker and Matt Stone makes this satire a clumsy bunt. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

When slacker friends Joe Cooper (Trey Parker) and Doug Remer (Matt Stone) are challenged to a pickup basketball game against some jocks, they counter by proposing to play a game they learned called "BASEketball," which combines basketball and baseball. In reality, they are improvising all of the rules, but somehow the sport becomes a hit. A promoter (Ernest Borgnine) forms a popular league, but after his death a rival owner (Robert Vaughn) wants to change the rules to increase profits.

Audience Reviews for BASEketball

    True dumb fun. Matt Stone and Trey Parker prove themselves more than capable of a budgeted live-action film, so long as humour is all you're looking for in a comedy.

    The creators of South Park trade their voice-over and production abilities for on-screen acting abilities, which makes BASEketball just as hysterical. The films cross-over script will be enjoyable for those who crave sports or comedy, but it's just downright gaudy of a film. 3.5/5

    I caught this again the other night and will maintain my rating of 4 stars. It's a guilty pleasure film and I'm shocked it hasn't developed a cult following like other silly comedies. The guys who created South Park play the lovable slackers well and is a shame they didn't attempt further films. The whole concept is crazy and original, you begin to question where all these interesting and high concept films have vanished to. If you don't mind checking your mind at the door and living through some 90s humour, than this is the film for you. 29-10-2017.

    BASEketball is a pretty decent comedy that is pure mindless entertainment. To watch this film, you really need to empty your mind, and enjoy. Starring the creators of South Park, BASEketball is a sports film about a sport combining Baseball and Basketball. The film has some laughs throughout and it relies on crude, vulgar comedy to make the audience. If you're familiar with South Park, then this should be no surprise. This film is funny, but I felt it could have been much better than what it turned out to be. The jokes are offensive, but it manages to make you laugh, but the film did have potential of being something far better. I mean you get David Zucker direct the two guys who created South Park in a film and you're sure to get something very funny. As it stands, the film is worth watching, has some good laughs, but lacks something to really make it stand out. The film works well as a mindless Friday night viewing with friends but if you're looking for a great comedy, pass up on this one. This is a pure mindless comedy that has some crude humor, a so-so plot and decent acting. The film is nothing too special, but is a must see for fans of South Park. I found the film enjoyable, but thought it could have been much better too. As far as comedies go, BASEketball definitely does deliver, but lacks in some areas, and you realize that it could have been a better film. This had the potential of being a great film, but it ends up being a decent film. For what it is, it's an enjoyable, crazy ride that is sure to make you laugh if you're in the right state of mind.
