I watched this on DVD under the new name "Strike!" just for kicks and actually did enjoy it. It's basically another Dodgeball/Blackball type of strange sports comedy.

Oscarz Pizza and all of it's little quirks (see for yourself) was hilarious! The league matches montage was worth a few good laughs too.

If you liked National Lampoon's Blackball, Dodgeball, Grandma's Boy etc. etc. you ought to enjoy this movie.
