A funny, really funny off beat comedy , but not for everyone
29 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is almost unheard of, such an underrated comedy, probably not for everyone, but, I am glad i stumbled onto it. I watch it over and over, and every time I laugh out loud. It is a little known treasure, it IS that dumb humor that most people don't get...seriously funny.

The story of a Wiffle(how you say} ball champion and his rise to fame, along with his best friend and fellow wiffle baller. it's off beat and, to me , funnier than dodgeball, but in the same humor vein.

I don't know what else to say about it other than if you like comedies, you should really give this a chance, it should be on my re-watcher list because i watch this at least once a month.

"scrunchy bits , scrunchy bits" ... just plain funny...to me.
