Storyline

Two losers from Milwaukee, Coop & Remer, invent a new game playing basketball, using baseball rules. When the game becomes a huge success, they, along with a billionaire's help, form the Professional Baseketball League where everyone gets the same pay and no team can change cities. Coop & Remer's team, the Milwaukee Beers is the only team standing in the way of major rule changes that the owner of the Dallas Felons wants to institute.

Trivia

The shooting schedule worked out in such a way that Yasmine Bleeth's first scene was the one where she walks in on Matt Stone and Trey Parker naked in the locker rooms. See more »

Goofs

During the first championship game the announcer says Coop has hit for the cycle 7 times, We don't see the scoreboard until after Squeek and Remer hit, but after they both get hits it says 22 hits. For Coop to hit the cycle 7 times would mean 28 hits for him alone See more »

Quotes

Joseph R. Cooper: He didn't pysche me out!
Douglas "Swish" Reemer: Yeah, if anyone should get the psyche-out, it should be Denslow!
Joseph R. Cooper: Dude, weak.

Crazy Credits

After the credits have finished there is a scene where the Bob Costas and Al Michaels have a conversation consisting only of "dude", a la the make up scene between Parker and Stone. This ends with Al Michaels turning to the screen and pulling down a screen before what one would expect to be a kiss like Parker and Stone earlier in the film... See more »

just funny
10 July 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This movie is just funny. mindless, but funny. to enjoy this movie completely you can't have a perception of how a film like this goes and just enjoy all the side jokes and puns which are involved with the film. I still find the bit at the start funny when he says "want a beer........cock". funny stuff. but what makes the film decent is the fact that it doesn't try to hard to create a serious spin on the film, too many comedies try to have serious aspects which you just don't believe. But this is different and just focuses on being funny. I must say though, Yasmin bleeth is terrible in the film and adds nothing but the 3 main guys, coop, remer and squeak are very funny to watch and make the film great to watch
