White Goodman (Ben Stiller) is the owner and founder of Globo Gym, and would love nothing more than owning Average Joe's Gymnasium. Peter LaFleur (Vince Vaughn) doesn't want to lose his gym to Goodman, but can't find a way to get $50,000 in time. Peter and his gang of gym buddies think of ways to raise money, finally settling on winning a dodge ball tournament. White Goodman retaliates by creating his own dodge ball team to finish off Peter. Peter's team doesn't do too well, until legendary ADAA champ Patches O'Houlihan (Rip Torn) turns up ready to train them.Written by

In the game where Globo Gym is playing the Japanese team the Japanese player who turn the flip and throws the ball has number 4 written on his back. It then pans to White Goodman catching his throw eliminating number 4. The next shot shows one of the Japanese players getting hit by 2 throws - he also has number 4 on his back and should have already been out. See more »

At the end of the credits, there's a bizarre rant from White Goodman to the audience with his comments on the film's ending and a related odd musical interlude. See more »
I haven't laughed this hard at a movie in years. That's all I can really say about this movie. It's stupid, sure, but it's so hilarious, you don't care.
I could not stop laughing. There are so many jokes in this movie, you don't even have a chance to rest before the next one comes along.
Ben Stiller as the "evil" White Goodman -- it's a classic character that should go down in the annals of comedy greatness. The announcers for ESPN 8 "The Ocho" (Gary Cole and Jason Bateman) had me rolling in the aisles. Stephen Root is a comic genius as well, and Alan Tudyk as the random pirate (why? who cares!) was pure gold.
Oh, and make sure you stay till the end of the credits... Ben Stiller does a routine that's absolutely hysterical.
