Movie Reviews

If I could have given it less I would have.
Joshua Glowzinski | Earth | 07/29/2006

"Ok my step brother who is 15 and I usally have the same humor. I am 21 so I think the age difference might have had something to do with it but this was by far the stupidest think I have ever seen. My step brother and step sister (15 and 12) laughed at some of it but when it ended I thought 5 minutes had went by. The movie has stupid jokes like this boy sits on another boys face and farts and the boy who got farted on says "it really doesn't taste that bad sir." STUPID. The movies never even has a point where it matters if they lose the game they win every game they play. The one guy is good and the other two are horrible. Thats the whole movie stupid jokes, winning every game and a midget who speaks from his heart. I guess this was the touching moment in the movie but holey man it was SO BAD. I usally like movies like this but this one was stupid. Very VERY stupid. Go on rent it and tell everyone what you think. But it you hate wasting money save yourself and stay away."

"Just as is the case with all Happy Madison-produced movies, this movie comes equipped with a crappy plot. However, also as usual, the movie manages to be funny and entertaining anyway. The characters and the humorous dialogue are what make the movie worth seeing. Rob Schneider, David Spade, Jon Heder, Nick Swardson and Jon Lovitz are all very funny in their respective roles.

My favorite characters were Richie (Spade) and his brother Howie (Swardson), who suffers from agoraphobia and does not leave the house. He fears the sun, in particular, as he believes that it is bad and that it wants to burn him. Richie finally tricks Howie into leaving the house by telling him that there is an escaped killer running loose in their town who is hell-bent on killing people named Howie. Before this, however, we also get to see Howie go to battle with 2 cute little Girl Scouts.

There are some very funny one-liners delivered in this movie. I found myself laughing out loud more than a few times, usually at something said by David Spade's character.

Jon Lovitz, Craig Kilborn, Tim Meadows and a few others do well with their supporting roles. Lovitz is particularly funny as a nerd-turned-billionaire who spitballs the idea of "The Benchwarmers" team.

I would recommend seeing the movie, but I wouldn't put it on the same level as Spade's past movies, Napoleon Dynamite or any older Sandler movies. I would place it just on the level with a Rob Schneider movie, like Deuce Bigalow. Worth watching, then decide whether or not you want to own it."
Adam Sandler would approve!

"Produced by Adam Sandler's company, Happy Madison, this movie has a lot of elements you would come to expect from many of Adam Sandler's past comedic escapades, such as toilet humor and slapstick elements, and "Benchwarmers" makes great use of these and other elements that have delighted fans for several years. Rob Schneider, a recurring minor character actor from several Sandler films, steps up to the plate in this latest baseball comedy, which follows a growing trend of movies glorifying the low people on the social totem pole. I personally have always enjoyed seeing movies that do this, and "Benchwarmers" is no exception. Unless you are totally opposed to this type of humor, "Benchwarmers" is sure to hit a home run with your funny bone! Older children and teens particularly will find this movie a treat, but I would recommend this movie to anyone, regardless of age (with the exception of very young children), who has ever found entertainment value in Adam Sandler or the three featured actors herein!"
What a disappointment

"I loved Napolean Dynamite and was interested to see Jon Heder in a different role. Sadly, this is the movie I watched. If I was 10 years old I might have liked it. I guess I should have expected it - any time Rob Schneider (?) plays the straight man you're asking for trouble. The original premise is cute, but the kids are not seen nearly enough, the emotions never wring true, and all the characters are very flat. Enough with the booger jokes!"
