Critic Reviews for National Lampoon's Blackball
A full-on local crowd-pleaser, "Blackball" takes the genteel sport of, uh, lawn bowling and comes up with a shameless slice of Brit flag-waving comedy.
The laughs here are way off-target. This Brit-flop won't be bowling anyone over.
Tim Firth's script is functional on a sitcom level at best, and Mel Smith's direction differs from the usual hack job only in being a bit worse (especially in the frequent montages set to rock songs).
It just winds up as another filmmaking exercise where it's thought that the story is there, but in reality, it got drunk at the corner bar and puked all over the characters.
Audience Reviews for National Lampoon's Blackball
Reasonably entertaining, and though I'm not sure that it's exactly how it happened it's all good fun.
