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.

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 »

What's the Big Deal?
3 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I've heard so many critics and average joes ripping into this flick like it was the first sign hailing the antichrist. The movie is simple, yes, but damn funny. Maybe I'm just not caught up in my own pretense to enjoy a simple movie. Yes, there are times when I crave something more sophisticated, but this movie still has my friends and I rolling in the aisles. Give it a chance and you just might like it. 7/10
