This is a decent comedy. I didn't think it would be, but it is. The mockery and satire of those involved with this sport is spot-on. If you take this too seriously, then you need to lighten up. This may not be Stiller's, or Vaughn's, best work; but it certainly makes for an amusing, light, Saturday afternoon comedy. Jason Bateman is truly funny in this. If you don't "get" mockery, then skip this. If you do, it's a nice distraction from life.

Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story (Full Screen Edition)

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Peter LaFleur is a charismatic underachiever and proprietor of a rundown gym called Average Joe's. The facility's ecclectic clientele of decidedly less-than-average Joes is comprised of: a self-styled pirate; a scrawny nerd who dreams of impressing an unattainable cheerleader; an obsessive aficionado of obscure sports; a dim-witted young man; and a cocky know-it-all who, of course, really knows nothing. Peter's humble gym catches the eye of White Goodman, the power-mullet-sporting, Fu-Manchu-d, egomaniacal owner of Globo Gym, a gleaming monolith of fitness. White intends to take over Average Joe's, and Peter's non-existent bookkeeping is making it all too easy for him. A foreclosing bank has stationed attorney Kate Veatch inside Average Joe's to finalize Globo's takeover of the gym. But Peter's boyish charms win her over and Kate joins his team of social rejects to beat the odds, and their own ineptitude,to try to save Average Joe's. By having a showdown dodgeball competition against Globo Gym. From the supporting cast and the cameo's everyone does a top notch job. It's stupid, sure, but it's so hilarious, you don't care. I could not stop laughing. There are so many jokes in this movie, you don't even have a chance to rest before the next one comes along. This is a comedy, a comedy meant to entertain.
