This is NOT the comedy

"I ordered this DVD thinking that it was the British comedy about lawn bowling like the above reviewer thought. This is NOT that movie! This is a very dark movie about a racist character, etc. according to the back. The comedy is only available through Amazon UK that I've found if your player can play that region. I've already returned this one and ordered the British one."
Enjoyable change of pace

"Totally watchable and enjoyable film, both for it's comic and dramatic aspects. A nice change to see a film that doesn't feature a car chase or a bullet-proof leading man. Also worth mentioning is the soundtrack, with features a nice selection of classic rock tunes. The "Won't Get Fooled Again" segment alone warrants seeing this film!"
Careful with the comparisons to Dodgeball...

"This movie was originally released in Britain in 2003, probably before Dodgeball was even filmed. I say that because there exists the sentiment that this was somehow a spin-off.
Anyways, the concept of a movie about bowls drew my roommate and I to the theater when in London. We had no idea what to expect and wer pleasently suprised to see Vince Vaughn. His character was entertaining as were all the others. In the British context it was pretty funny... very very bizarre though."
