You either love these kinds of movies, or you hate them. (by Psycho_N8_Phd)
I really think that's the only issue with this film. If you've been a fan of Adam Sandler's work this is a Happy Madison production , you'll like this movie. Not only was it produced by Sandler, but it was co-written by one of his longtime buddies Allen Covert. If you go into this movie not knowing what to expect, that's your own fault. I know this movie won't be received well by critics, but when has ANYTHING that Sandler's done ever been? Ontop of that it features Jon Heder aka Napoleon Dynamite. To me, this was a huge added bonus. I love Sandler movies, and I <more>
loved Napoleon Dynamite. Many people feel Heder's a terrible actor, but I think his delivery is hysterical. I found myself laughing throughout this film, and thought it supplied Heder with more great one-liners that will be quoted for the next year. After saying that, some of you might turn your nose up at me and tell me that I wouldn't know what a good movie is, but I enjoy and cherish Casablanca, The Godfather: Part II, and Good Will Hunting as much as anybody, but forgive me if I like to enjoy a little mindless laughter at times. If you didn't like Billy Madison, The Hot Chick, or Napoleon Dynamite, you'll hate this movie, no doubt. But then why would you even go see it in the first place?
I expected a very poor quality comedy, but this was anything but. I am giving this movie a "10" because it is a comedy, and it made me laugh almost non-stop, so in my opinion it was an amazing success. This movie does have its share of physical humor and toilet brand jokes, but it is well rounded with quick sharp wit as well, so unless you just hate humor in general, go see this movie. My only regret was seeing it in a packed theater because a lot of the jokes were strung together in such a quick manner that the laughter from the entire theater most likely made me miss some stuff. <more>
The actor that played David Spade's brother stole the show completely. Without giving anything away I have to say I laughed almost to the point of crying, as did the entire theater it seemed, and as the credits rolled i actually heard clapping from the audience. I don't want to hype it up to much, but its hard not to, so just go see the damn movie already.
One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time! (by NancyLou9)
I can't figure out why everyone's being so hard on this movie. It isn't often I can go to a comedy at the theater and actually laugh out loud. However, when I saw this movie this weekend, I wasn't the only one who was laughing, and I mean often. There were times the audience was laughing so much I had trouble hearing the dialog.This is, simply put, a movie about three guys, almost over the hill, who decide to play some baseball against real Little League teams in the state. It's not about some grand scheme, it's not about the glory, it's about standing up for those <more>
who were always picked last in gym, always called names for not being athletic, it's about the little guy and standing up for the underdog.I have seen other critiques of this movie and people are complaining about the plot line, the dialog, you name it, there's something wrong with it. Don't go to the movie expecting to see any Oscar moments, they simply aren't there. If all you really want a good laugh though, go see this movie. Bill Romanowski plays a character who makes fun of his "roid rage" while he played football. Jon Heder is "almost" Napolean Dynamite, similar voice, but the character is funnier. David Spade has some issues in his personal life that really steal the show Think Gir in Invader Zim .I don't want to say too much more about the movie because it would give away something hilarious. As far as being a waste of my money, I plan to go to a matinée this week so I can see it in a less crowded theater and hear the dialog I missed. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it several more times.At the end of the movie, the theater cut off the credits for some reason and the people in the audience fussed until they turned them back on. Not a single person left until the last line had rolled on the credits also funny, stay and watch them .This is one hilarious movie and it's "...freakin' awesome!"
Really funny movie, the whole theater was cracking up (by danzinit)
This movie had a lot of the typical humor you'd expect from the three leads. May be typecasting John Heder a bit too much but he's good at the part he plays. Actually has a sweet story line. I went with my boyfriend and another couple and both the guys and the girls really enjoyed the movie and neither side was really offended by the humor. Be warned however, there are three different places in the movie where vomiting is involved just for the funny effect it has on a situation . For anyone with a weak stomach, look away! I actually was pleasantly surprised with the minimal swearing <more>
in this movie when you consider who the cast is and who produced it Happy Madison . Anyway, I thought it was a really good movie and would definitely recommend it.
This is the story of three grown men playing internet broad-casted games as The Benchwarmers against 4 or 5 different teams of Bullies.David Spade Richie plays a Smart-mouthed scaredy-cat that plays to impress a lovely lady fan of the Benchwarmers. John Heder Clark plays a dorky lovable mama's boy who needs to get out more. & Rob Schneider Gus plays a tough guy who carries the team who fights plays baseball for all the poor nerds that never got to before, so that his kid will someday be free from bullies.The movie contains some crude humor so be aware when taking small <more>
children, but otherwise this is a Hilarious story of the way that life should be, not that it will change, but still so that adults see how truly cruel children can be.I loved this movie, I laughed hard but lets not miss the message.Enjoy!
First things first, before going to see this movie, please take the time to remind yourself that it is a comedy and is not vying for an academy award! This movie is funny, and actually promotes a positive theme. The parts were well cast, the jokes were mostly fresh, and I laughed a lot, I think that was the point. Both John Heder and David Spade were great, and Rob Schneider played the likable lead. There was a quite a bit of physical humor, but Heder is good at that, and Spade still has a pretty sharp tongue. This is really one of the first fun movies of the summer. Go see this movie if you <more>
want to have a good time. Don't go see this movie if you are in the mood to be critical. Critical people don't laugh much.
I really did not expect the movie to be very good. Don't get me wrong - I thought I'd like it I love almost every baseball movie ever made but I had no idea that the film would actually work on multiple levels.The movie's short, but that's OK as it gets right to the point and never stops. Some of the humor is a bit childish far jokes , but they actually balance a lot of it out with other childish jokes that make the earlier ones bearable back to back fart jokes... I don't want to be more specific because it will spoil it when you see it .I was very pleased with this <more>
film and will probably see it again while it's in theaters. If you're somebody who likes any Adam Sandler branded flick then you'll love this one.
The best baseball comedy since Major League! (by jellyneckr)
It all started in 1999. Adam Sandler, at the hieght of his popularity, decided to help old pal Rob Schneider out by producing DEUCE BIGELOW: MALE GIGOLO. That film was surprisingly a hit so Sandler took the next logical step and produced a film for another SNL buddy, David Spade. JOE DIRT, while not the commericial success 'BIGELO' was did great in DVD sales and has since gained cult statuts. Sandler has continued to produce projects for both Schneider and Spade over the years so it seemed inevitable that the two would end up starring in a Sandler produced film together. THE <more>
BENCHWARMERS teams Schneider and Spade with Jon Heder, best known for starring in the worst comedy of the 2000s NAPOLEON DYNAMITE. The three play pals who after beating a bunch of little bullies at a baseball game discover that they could make a living doing so while standing up to bullies in the process. The plot and most of the characters are secondary to the rapid-fire slapstick and gross-out gags, 85% of which hit. When the gags do fail, it's due to Heder. He does well in his role for the most part, but at times it seems like he's still in Napoleon Dynamite mode. While some more backstory into his character's life and Ritchie's David Spade life would have made the movie more filling, they still aren't the usual one-dimensional characters the audience is used to seeing in most flicks these days, which is ultimately why I recommend it. 8/10
I expected this movie to be funny, but I didn't know it will be hilariously funny...oh, it was great!!! I would probably have been rolling on the floor laughing if I was not in the movie theatre...hehehe...Rob Schneider, Jon Heder, and David Spade are totally perfect for the role!!! I also have to mention that a testament to how much I enjoyed the movie is me liking Rob Schneider...hahaha...when I usually find him annoying. This movie made me like Jon Heder even more...man, he is awesomely cool. David Spade is also good in the movie, I think he was not too over the top, which I think he <more>
is most of the time. All in all, I just totally recommend this movie...it's a fantastic feel-good movie with a positive message!!! Nerds for Life!!!
