The story is about a local, home grown Jim is being threatened to be closed or overtaken when the gym particpants enroll in a dodgeball tournament to try to raise money to save the Gym. This movie was silly but funny in some parts.

In taking a thoroughly over-the-top and ridiculous approach to the world of extreme dodgeball, the film succeeds at crafting an energetic and fun comedy that isn't afraid to be both campy and satirical. Ben Stiller moves away from his usual neurotic acting style and the film features some fun cameo performances as well.

Child's game taken to an absurd level. Somewhat enjoyable. Underdogs always pull us in.

Filled with goofy humor and a good amount of laughs, but I don't find it quite as funny on repeat viewings.

Who would have thought that dodging hand tools could be a teaching "tool"? This movie is not why I like Ben Stiller, but it is a funny movie. Vince is typical Vince in this movie. If you've loved him in Swingers, Made or Wedding Crashers, then this isn't going to disappoint. Rip Torn, well, he's Rip. This is the story of many underachievers trying to simply achieve. Great cast of misfits that doesn't include Christine Taylor. She's the one bright spot that the lovable gym saviors have in their quest to save a slumping business from a mega-gym owner and just simply, a pain in the butt. If you like feel good endings then this will not disappoint.... or will it?
