Roy Munson was raised to be the best bowler in the world (trained early on by his father). But a fellow bowler, Ernie McCracken and a misunderstanding with some rough punks, leaves poor Roy with the loss of his bowling hand! Not to let this get him down, he gets a prosthetic hand and becomes a travelling sales man. But it's really all down hill for him from that night on until ... One day he meets Ishmael who is Amish and sneaks away from the farm to bowl (his fellow Amish would disown him if they knew)! Roy convinces Ishmael to let him be his trainer and he'll make him the best bowler the world has ever seen. Reluctantly Ishmael agrees to go on the road and shortly afterwards actually finds that life outside the farm is quite fun. Soon their paths cross that of Ernie McCracken who is still a top ranking bowler. While Roy's career and life have landed in the toilet bowl, Ernie is still drawing huge crowds and all the babes! They both square off for the ultimate bowling championship .....Written by

John Popper: Lead singer and harmonica player for Blues Traveler, has a bit part as the announcer for the Reno bowling championship. Blues Traveler, in Amish garb, appears at the end of the movie playing one of their songs. See more »
After Big Ern's first of three final strikes during the Reno Finals, Ishmael is visible sitting next to Roy, despite having just left with his brother. See more »
A deleted scene (not on the DVD) had Roy accidentally grabbing the Strip Club owner in the nuts with his hook. You can see the Strip Club Owner running out of the club after them holding his crotch. See more »
this is a great movie , the jokes so smart , and very nice 60-70 sound truck , the movie is a combination of a road movie and self definition movie. bill Morey plays the bad guy and he adds his touch of comedy , Ishmael and his jokes are historical, especially one Ishmael end up working as a female striper, and when he discover a small tattoo one the chest not noticing the side to side tattoo at his back. some parts may be considered a bit racial , but all on all this movie is very funny. the scene where woody Harrison milks the bill is eternal. the end as always a happy end. in Iraq this movie was a hit , and still available at video rent shelfs.not much cgi, Vanessa Angel definitely plays a nice part and she is a very hot one, the scene of fight between her and woody was to much and you can see the sub performing.
