Taken aback by his mother's wedding announcement, a young man returns home in an effort to stop her from marrying his old high school gym teacher, a man who made middle school hell for generations of students.
Billy Bob Thornton,
Seann William Scott,
Gary, an overzealous high school janitor (Seann William Scott), who has not recovered from his failed career as a tennis pro, begins coaching his beloved sport to a group of misfits after the high school tennis coach (Randy Quaid) drops dead. With his unorthodox coaching style, Gary must try and lead them to the Nebraska State Championships.Written by
I was simply just not entertained by this 'comedy.' That is most likely due to the fact that the director hasn't been able to maintain his directorial status with any series for more than 2 episodes. The only original and funny comedy he's directed is 'Dude, Where's my Car?.' The movie itself is long and drawn-out. Sean William Scott seems to try too hard. I think that he does much better with supporting roles.
I'll give the movie a little credit in saying that a few parts were actually kind of funny. But with all the other great comedies produced this year, 'Balls Out' falls very short of living up to any standard.
