Stupid comedy that I couldn't really get into. Though, there are some laughs to be had.

I was expecting worse, but this was a decent comedy that's helped by the singularly hilarious Christopher Walken who hams it up to the next level. Think Enter the Dragon with ping pong and there you go. Stupid good fun.

I finally got to watch Balls of Fury now that it hit DVD. I've read the reviews, and I know that they smacked this film around as being a really poor film. Now I don't like to follow the reviews because they are so often way off base and I found that seems to be the case here as well. Honestly when I went to watch this film I was ready to see a stupid movie.

LAME! It was about 5 minutes in when I realized I haven't laughed yet. The movie kept that pace throughout, occasionally throwing us a funny bone but in the end I can count the time I laughed hard -- twice! That is not very good. To make matters worse, I didn't expect much with this movie. I heard it was bad so I thought that maybe it was like Zoolander or Beerfest (so bad they are great).
Speaking of Beerfest, this movie is exactly like that except for the aspect of it not being funny. It tried to hard to do the unexpected but in the end was completely predictable. Dan Fogler probably has no future in acting after this role, which is great for the rest of us who never have to see his fat ass again.
This is also the first time I saw the audience gladly leave during the credits …
