I'd give 10 Hollywood blockbuster movies for 1 Blackball.
One of the funniest movies I've seen for a long time. Proof that you don't need mega bucks to make a good movie, just a good script and the right cast selection. The plot is farcial and the cameos keep popping in when you least expect them, unless you've seen the cast list. One more thing in it's favour, there is no hope of a "Blackball 2, the grude match" to detract from the original.
