The balls are back in town
28 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Ahh this one's an old eightee's one hit wonder. I will try to explain it short and sweet, basically the story, animated focuses around a team of talking bouncing balls, OK wierded out yet, I was too, anyway they try to save their planet. Think South Park crossed with Monty python crossed with a crappy eightees cartoon, that's what this movie is about, I don't know if there was a series, I just remember the film, I wish I could see it again, but try walking up to a video clerk and asking exuse me do you have 'madballs.' It's too old, I can't find it anywhere, definitally a good, 'oh my god this is terrible' comedy. I remember having a Screaming Mimi figure, I have no Idea where they came from, but it's worth a look only to see how gross and over the top it is. Go on, go back in time and get it out on video, oh and another thing, it's totally maketed to kids, this isn't a grown up film.
