Dodgeball

Posted by martinteller on June 19, 2004

Sure, it’s stupid.  Fat jokes, bathroom jokes, ethnic jokes, gay jokes, getting hit in the balls jokes… this is lowest-common-denominator stuff.  But it’s also smart enough to clearly label a huge chest of money “Deus Ex Machina” and almost certainly the only comedy in recent years to use the word Schadenfreude (and yes, I confess to a smug satisfaction from knowing I was one of the few people in the theater to get the joke).  Not likely to become a favorite of mine, but I did laugh enough to enjoy the experience.  Rating: 7
