Did You Know?

Goofs

In the first soccer game Matthew/Martha plays there are several full body shots of him running and kicking the ball and especially the shot of him kicking the ball into the net for a goal where you can see the face and it is obviously the stand in and not Jonathan Brandis. See more »

Quotes

Chester: I tell you, that Welfelt has power. You know, with the right training, she could be the best player we have!
Julie: The best player we have? Well, what about Larimer over there, the little black girl? She's the best player we have! You know that black people are the best at sports, c'mon! We're the best runners, the fastest runners, the best at track. We're the best at baseball, the best at boxing, the best at basketball, football. Hey, you name it!

More Fun From Rodney Dangerfield!
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To climb the corporate ladder to success, a guy agrees to coach the company's all girl soccer team with the help of his secret weapon: his fiancée's son. Ladybugs is a very funny movie, it's got a lot of fun and laughs from Rodney Dangerfield, the man who gets no respect. Being a fan of Rodney Dangerfield, I wanted to see this movie, and I enjoyed it very much. Dangerfield was a comedic genius, and in this movie, he is hysterical, especially with all of his clever one-liners, one notable gem: "When she walks into a room, mice jump on chairs." Just imagine, Rodney Dangerfield trying to teach a girl's soccer team? Just how funny would that be? It's pretty darn funny if you ask me! Dangerfield was great with one liners, and this movie proves it, as well as his other hilarious movies, such as Back To School, Caddyshack, and Easy Money. I'll give this movie eight stars out of ten, meaning that while it is not the funniest Dangerfield movie you'll ever see, it still contains Rodney's signature humor and has many laughs!

Repeating what I said before, Rodney Dangerfield is at the top of his game in this movie, he gives a hilarious performance as Chester Lee, a man who agrees to coach a girl's soccer team in order to get a promotion. The late Jonathan Brandis is great as Matthew, the son of Rodney Dangerfield's fiancée, who is required to pose as a girl to help the soccer team. While he is on the team, Matthew takes the name Martha. It is a shame that Jonathan Brandis died so young (27 in fact), as he probably would have had a great career, because he was really talented. There are numerous scenes in this movie that are very funny, such as the office scene, and whenever Chester is trying to coach the team, not to mention the funniest bits, Dangerfield's classic jokes and one-liners. If I had the chance to watch this movie again, I would, as it is really, really funny, and the always hilarious Rodney Dangerfield makes it all the better!

If you want some good laughs, then Ladybugs is just the movie to watch. Watch as Rodney Dangerfield brings his signature "No Respect" personality when he becomes the coach of a girl's soccer team, and watch as lot of disaster and laughs ensue. Dangerfield simply knew how to turn on the rule of funny. Every time that he is on screen, he steals the show, he stole the show in Caddyshack, Easy Money, and Back To School, and he did it in Ladybugs, and then he would do it two years later when he played a chilling role in Natural Born Killers. If you are a fan of Dangerfield, then you should see this movie, as you will enjoy it, and you will get some laughs out of it too! Rodney is gone, but he certainly will not be forgotten, as his humor and jokes will live on. He's got plenty of jokes in this movie, and they are funny, just watch the movie and get ready to laugh.

8/10
