This is an absolutely hilarious movie that I would recommend to
anyone. True, it has the same basic plot as every other sports movie that has come out in the last 20 years (group of ragtags come together to form a team to defeat a bigger, more evil team, etc.), but there such high energy in all the performances, and the dialogue is so brimming with hilarity that it doesn't matter. How many "comedies" have come out recently that contain only a few jokes, each of them surrounded by tons of boring and meaningless plot development that don't add up to anything. For anyone tired of this, I highly urge you to take a look at this highly underrated film filled with dialogue that is refreshingly funny all the way through. Movies like this are what great comedy is all about.
