Beer League is raunchy and tacky, but it's a hell of a lot funnier than something like Failure To Launch.
Artie Lange, Howard Stern's radio sidekick, somehow manages to make beer-league softball seem no fun at all in this extremely lowbrow comedy.
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.
Does the movie hit a home run? Hardly. But it's at least a single.
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.
The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable.
This is a foul ball of a comedy -- a raunchy, raucous frat party.
Beer League is not for tender ears, but more for the beer-bellied, rascally rule breaker in all of us, and most importantly, there's a great chance something in here will make you laugh.
a whole lot of lewd potty humor that doesn't really add up to anything substantial, a guilty pleasure of sorts when taken in small bursts, but which grows somewhat tiresome in the long run
When a small delivery of casual swearing from Seymour Cassell earns your movie's biggest laugh, there's definitely a problem.
Now softball has its own seminal classic.
A cavalcade of colorful profanity, bachelor-party hooker gags ... and shopworn bodily function jokes, this vehicle for Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange is slob comedy at its slobbiest.
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.
This movie's a lot like it's star, Artie Lange--it's slovenly, crude and an overall waste, but can somehow pull it together by the end while being somehow likable. It has a few fun cameos. I liked Beer League because it wasn't wishy washy and safe instead of wonderfully politically incorrect with its humor. Picture New Jersey douchebags cast in a remake of The Bad News Bears.
What you'd call a stinkin' piece of shit. No offense.
