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

In the scene where Remer meets with his entertainment lawyer, Coop accuses of Remer of being a "sell-out" for doing "a big Hollywood movie" now that he's famous, leading to Coop and Remer to act as though they'd heard that phrase before. This is a reference to the fact that, when BASEketball was announced, many of South Park's fans accused Matt Stone and Trey Parker of being "sell-outs" for doing "a big Hollywood movie" now that they're famous.

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
