Brief Synopsis: "When megalomaniacal White Goodman, the owner of a trendy, high-end fitness center, makes a move to take over the struggling local gym run by happy-go-lucky Pete La Fleur, there's only one way for La Fleur to fight back: dodgeball. Aided by a dodgeball guru and Goodman's attorney, La Fleur and his rag-tag team of underdogs launch a knock-down, drag-out battle in which the winner takes all."

    Jim Carrier91 - The first really noticeable movie where Vince Vaughn has had the lead & is able to show off his genuinely sarcastic sense of humor. One of my favorite Ben Stiller movies. He is at his best when he acts like White Goodman. We need more of that. Very quoteable & you have to watch it more than once.

    Bryan Lienesch80 - Its satire definitely is on the stupid side, but it's funny nonetheless.
