Storyline

Two losers from Milwaukee, Coop & Remer, invent a new game playing basketball, using baseball rules. When the game becomes a huge success, they, along with a billionaire's help, form the Professional Baseketball League where everyone gets the same pay and no team can change cities. Coop & Remer's team, the Milwaukee Beers is the only team standing in the way of major rule changes that the owner of the Dallas Felons wants to institute.

A fun flick
31 July 1998 | by mermattSee all my reviews

This is another Zucker film in the grand style of AIRPLANE.

The story is generally fast-paced. The jokes just keep coming -- and most of them work. Plus, we get the most passionate screen kiss between men since IN & OUT. What more could you want?
