A-Z Challenge: Dodge Ball

One, two, three, DODGE BALL!!!
Most people know dodge ball as the game you play in school, outside, or with friends. Pegging balls at each other... Fun stuff. Well let's just say Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Stephen Root take this game a little too far...

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story Poster"White Goodman is the owner and founder of Globo Gym, and would love nothing more than owning Average Joe's Gymnasium. Peter LaFleur doesn't want to lose his gym to Goodman, but can't find a way to get $50,000 in time. Peter and his gang of gym buddies think of ways to raise money, finally settling on winning a dodgeball tournament. White Goodman retaliates by creating his own dodgeball team to finish off Peter. Peter's team doesn't do too well, until legendary ADAA champ Patches O'Houlihan turns up ready to train them."-

This movie is BEAST!!! It's one of my favorites of all time. Aside from all the laughs in the movie, we learn a very important life lesson....

Never try playing dodge ball competitively :P As you can see in the clips bellow, it's a very competitive sport for these guys. Just hope we don't end up playing with them.

Thanks for checking my blog out once again for a Month of Movies! I hope to see you again tomorrow for "E"  and let's just say it deals with some extra terrestrials ;)

A-Z Question:
As a child, did you ever play dodge ball? Have you seen this movie? If you had to run through a street of passing cars because your dodge ball coach said so would you?

Thanks again for stopping by!

  3. I've actually watched this film, and really enjoyed it. Ben Stiller is such a likeable guy.

  4. Hated dodgeball as a kid.
    This movie isn't my usual style of humor but I really enjoyed it! Very funny.

    1. Agreed Alex :) Have you seen Billy Madison? Dodgeball scene ;P

  5. I played dodgeball in school - it was fun :)
    Saw only a part of this movie 'cos it was on flight and then we went through turbulence - never got around to finishing it though
    Can't wait for E !!

    1. That's why no one likes turbulence :P You should finish it sometime. You'd love it :D

  6. I was in tears watching Dodgeball.

    1. Good old humor :P Thanks for stopping by Jamie! :D

  7. I can hardly throw a ball - when I do, it usually ends up behind me. Needless to say, I was always terrible at dodgeball. I absolutely adored this movie, though!

    I never trusted my teachers - I only ever did what they told me if I thought it was logical.

    Dif-tor heh smusma
