Review – Dodgeball

I didn’t hate this as much as I thought I was going to. Sure, it’s every bit as stupid as you’d expect a Ben Stiller movie about dodgeball to be. But the lack of expectation actually helps make some of the humor a little easier to take. Don’t get me wrong, though. This is a cliché-clogged parade of brainless gags if ever there was one. Further, it’s got more than just a touch of Stiller’s trademark awkwardness that’s supposed to be funny but rarely works. Still, if you don’t expect much out of it then at least some of the production will provide a bit of mindless fun. It’s also somewhat better on DVD because of the alternate ending joke. Mildly amusing
