Bill Henry: When we were formed on an atomic level, all these little tiny cells come together in a very very specific comibinion.
[With fingers coming together]
Bill Henry: Boop boop boop; might become you. Boop boop boop; a different way might become me. Boop boop boop; another way might become Pat Sajack. Once every 10,000 years or so, these chromosomes come together in just a special way. When they came together that day, that was Bobby Dukes.

Hilarious movie, see it first chance you get
14 June 2005 | by (Omena, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan. I loved it so much, I saw it twice, and I never do that at festivals.

This hilarious film stars Rob Corddry from The Daily Show. The film is about Bobby Dukes, a famous paintball star that was caught "wiping" during the championship match. After ten years, Dukes returns to the game, assembling a new team and hoping to gain back his title.

The mockumentary is well done, though the laughs don't come right away, when they show up they don't leave. The teammates are all hilarious, and the side characters add to the comedy. Though the games are fun to watch, the comedy comes from training for the games. When Bobby gets his team together you can't help but laugh. Each member has their own great qualities, especially Rob Riggle and Paul Scheer. Writing this review, it's been two days since I last saw it, and I still keep laughing at some of the jokes.

I really hope this movie makes it to theatres, I know people will check it out and love it. I saw the director after the film and he said he had a lot of great extra footage shot that he would love to include on the DVD, so I can't wait, I'll buy it first chance I get.

See the movie, spread the word.
