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 internet slang for stupidity, the expression 'derp' was first used as a line in this film by Matt Stone's character. The term is later used in a number of episodes of South Park (1997)_ by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, that led to the spread and usage of the term. See more »

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 »

Indecently hilarious!
1 June 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I once watched Baseketball, got hooked and since then I watched it like 50 times. It is one of the films I cannot ever seem to grow tried of. I don't know what it is about it, but it is somehow so complete in its rough form.

Obviously, it doesn't hurt that there is plenty of nude (and amazingly gorgeous) women in the film (Victoria Silvstedt; WOW! is the only word that springs to mind!!!), but also because it is so delightedly respect-less towards just about anyone or anything.

All I can say to this flick is, if you like South Park, you'll LOVE this one! In fact, anyone with a sense of humour should enjoy this one!

7/10
