Sick, twisted, and very funny, Parker and Stone have arrived. Again.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The pop-culture answer to a murder-suicide, the kind of flick that serves itself up as the object of its own satire.
50
Not half-bad. It's about three- quarters bad, actually, but what's left offers some goof-off fun.

USA Today
Sports-satire misfire. [31 July 1998, p. 2E]

New York Daily News
Satire goes 'south' in gross mismatch of hot comic duo and "Airplane" director. [31 July 1998, p. 46]

ReelViews
When I watch a comedy, I want it either to present endearing characters in fun situations or to make me laugh frequently. BASEketball accomplishes neither objective.

Is it funny? Sporadically.
38
Chicago Sun-Times
Starts promisingly as an attack on modern commercialized sports, and then turns into just one more wheezy assembly-line story about slacker dudes vs. rich old guys.
33
Entertainment Weekly
Exhibits none of the infectious offhand tastelessness of their hit show and all of the insistent overkill of a Mel Brooks joke gone horribly wrong.
12
Crude, stupid and unfunny.
