In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
White Goodman (Ben Stiller) is the owner and founder of Globo Gym, and would love nothing more than owning Average Joe's Gymnasium. Peter LaFleur (Vince Vaughn) doesn't want to lose his gym to Goodman, but can't find a way to get $50,000 in time. Peter and his gang of gym buddies think of ways to raise money, finally settling on winning a dodge ball tournament. White Goodman retaliates by creating his own dodge ball team to finish off Peter. Peter's team doesn't do too well, until legendary ADAA champ Patches O'Houlihan (Rip Torn) turns up ready to train them. Written by
Patches O'Houlihan says, "It's like watching a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob." This is a reference to "It's like watching a monkey trying to hump a football," which was what 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Coach Herb Brooks said to his team when they were preparing for the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, NY.

In the opening scene we see a picture of White with the caption "White Goodman 1987", and he says "That's me, six years and 600 pounds ago," as if it's now 1993. But that can't be: the first line of the commentary from the dodgeball tournament says that ESPN8 ("The Ocho") has been bringing viewers obscure sports "since 1999," and Mona Lisa Smile and Lance Armstrong's Tour de France wins are mentioned in other scenes.

Peter La Fleur:
There's someone out there for everybody.
Peter La Fleur:
Absolutely. In some cases, there's two somebodies for one person. I like to call that "the jackpot".

At the end of the credits, there's a bizarre rant from White Goodman to the audience with his comments on the film's ending and a related odd musical interlude. See more »
This film is one of the funniest slapstick comedy ever. Ben Stiller was funny as always and Vince Vaughn was surprisingly funny. Stiller plays White Goodman and he is the snobbish owner of his up-to-the-style Globo Gym whereas Vaughn plays Peter La Fleur and he is the owner of Average Joe's. The gyms find out that there would be a dodgeball tournament held in a few weeks with a grand prize of fifty thousand dollars. Average Joe's need that money or else the gym goes to Globo Gym. The gyms ended up going and making it to the finals. But who wins? The movie will tell you that. All of the supporting actors were funny especially Rip Torn as Patches O'Houlihan. If you like Ben Stiller, you will like this movie. I rate this film a 10/10.
