Likable, easygoing schmoe (Vaughn) runs a gym for underachievers in direct competition with big box fitness fascist (Stiller) across the street. Stiller finds a way to expose Vaughn's financial failings to put him out of business. Vaughn enlists aid of his misfit patrons to win the pot of a professional dodgeball tournament--but they must beat Stiller's elite team first. Slobs vs. snobs comedy in the "Caddyshack/Meatballs" tradition, with plenty of crotch-crunching and boob humor. Don't miss Torn's crusty coach, who hurls wrenches as training. Nothing too original, but should please the frat crowd. Cameos by William Shatner, Lance Armstrong, David Hasselhoff, and Chuck Norris.

Dodgeball can never get old! I watch this movie all the time. If you havn't seen it then go watch it right now! The people that work out at the Average Joe's are really weird but really funny. This gym is in a competition with a huge, popular gym because the big one wants to buy the little one. The Average Joe's need to make money to keep the gym running, so they decide to join in on a dodgeball tournament. There's more to learning how to play dodgeball than they expected. In the end they win their deserved prize.
