Deborah Kara Unger,
Honestly, wasn't expecting a whole lot here, meh... reaction at best.
However, I was really pleasantly surprised - if this had had Will Ferrell or John C Reilly or David Koechner I wouldn't have been surprised. All in all this was entertaining - really.
Plot: bag boy + loser manager vs. champion bag boy (Who looks and acts just like the bad guy from Karate Kid) + scuzzy manager - you now know the whole story.
Lots of actors you'll recognize and a whole take on supermarket life that is serious enough to be taken as pastiche on the sports genre (Compete, lose, train, bond, triumph... well, duh....)
It's got a definite Kingpin feel to it (And actually does a homage to that halfway through) - for a pastiche sports movie this may be 100% by the numbers but it plays those numbers well...there's nothing too gross or offensive, no bodily fluids or nudity, while not exactly wholesome, it is viewable without cringing...
Definitely not bad, and a whole lot better than we were expecting...
