Movie Info

Artie (Artie Lange) has no job and no girlfriend, and still lives with his mother. But he does have two things to look forward to in life: beer and softball. With best buddy Maz (Ralph Macchio), Artie plays on a team for Ed's Bar and Swill -- until their brawling behavior threatens to get them kicked out of the league. In order to maintain their place, they'll have to defeat the champions at Manganelli Fitness -- no easy task when their blood-alcohol levels exceed their batting averages.

Critic Reviews for Beer League

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (11)

  • Beer League is raunchy and tacky, but it's a hell of a lot funnier than something like Failure To Launch.

    October 2, 2006
  • Artie Lange, Howard Stern's radio sidekick, somehow manages to make beer-league softball seem no fun at all in this extremely lowbrow comedy.

    September 19, 2006 | Rating: 0.5/5
  • Sitting through this film is like spending the night in that sleazy bar you swore you'd never go in, not even to use the bathroom.

    September 19, 2006 | Rating: 0.5/4
  • Does the movie hit a home run? Hardly. But it's at least a single.

    September 19, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • The sort of lowbrow sports comedy best enjoyed on a 50-inch screen with a six-pack, a bucket of wings and a fast-forward button.

    September 19, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable.

Audience Reviews for Beer League

  • Jul 05, 2012
    I never really enjoyed Artie Lange, but I gave this film a shot, thinking it may be good. I was wrong. This is a bad film that has too many jokes that fall flat, and just isn't that funny. Lange's brand of comedy really doesn't shine here, and it really brings the film down. If it had a better lead actor who actually is funny, then maybe this film would have been good, however it wasn't. This film suffers from everything that can go wrong with a comedy. I felt that Beer League was a very forgettable film, and it didn't stand out either. I felt that there was wasted potential in making a good film, and the filmmakers seemed to just rush to make this film. Everything goes wrong with the film, as the story just isn't good, and most importantly the jokes are unfunny. I really didn't enjoy this film, and I felt that it missed the mark on many occasions. There were times where the film could have been very funny, but it just had mediocre humor that wasn't funny. This film could definitely have been much better if it had a better cast and script. Artie Lange is a horrible comedian, and Beer League further proves it. I think it's a shame that the film like this turned out the way it did, because this film really could have been lots of fun with great comedy, instead the film just ends being a bad comedy with some washed up actors. Avoid this film and watch something else, you'll be glad you did. The only thing this film did for me is want me to avoid Artie Lange's future films.

    ... and Mr. Lange's body was found on his bed with a magnum in hand and a copy of his film Beer League in the other hand, he apparently took his own life for reasons that are so far unknown.

    I was almost shocked at how funny this movie was caught it on late night basic cable,luckily it was uncensored, and I'll be damned I really like this movie. Artie Lange as Artie Lange essentially except I'm not sure he lives with his mother, who was played by Laurie Metcalf (Roseanne) in the movie. Good fun, great if you are bored or drunk late at night.
