It's filled with solid comic performances, equally effective as both physical and verbal buffoonery.

Sick, twisted, and very funny, Parker and Stone have arrived. Again.

The idea of creating a loose plot outline and costly sets just so two goofballs can clown around and improvise onscreen might sound fun if you're the two goofballs. But it's a chore if you're a member of the audience.

Adolescent boys, or anyone who loves the idea of an extended argument using only the word 'dude,' will no doubt best appreciate BASEketball.

The comedy sets up some very big targets -- the commercialization of sport, crass franchise owners, sentimental idolatry of players, exploitation of foreign workers by superstar merchandisers -- and then lobs tiny spitballs at them.

BASEketball is a dog of a movie and that anyone paying to see it is hurting for a life. But then, you knew that.

This one went wrong somehwere, and is just gross, dumb and insulting.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium
January 1, 2000
Sophomoric comedy barely curves a few laughs over home plate, pops up a lot of corny and repetitive jokes, but hits a homerun for originality and strong performances.

This movie is downright damn silly, and it's funny...all the way through to the other side.

Strange as it may seem, David Zucker ends up being the steadying influence which reins in Parker and Stone.

The chief problem is this film is too much in love with itself, too much in awe at what they can get away with.

Degenerates into a tedious series of unamusing and rather forced gross-out gags.
