DODGE­BALL: A TRUE UN­DER­DOG STORY

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES PICK OF THE WEEK -

ELEVEN, Sun­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2004)

The jokes come faster than a ten­nis star’s ace in this ri­otous com­edy. Ben Stiller ( left) is way over the top as the sleazy, ridicu­lously nar­cis­sis­tic owner of Globo Gym ( motto: “We’re bet­ter than you and we know it”), who wants to take over a nearby down­mar­ket gym run by slacker Vince Vaughn. Need­ing $ 50,000 to save his club, Vaughn as­sem­bles a team of no­hop­ers to com­pete in a lu­cra­tive dodge­ball tour­na­ment ( an ac­tual sport in the US) against Stiller. The ban­ter aims low and hits ev­ery time in one of the finest ex­am­ples of dumb- but- fun com­edy you’ll ever see.
