Storyline

John Turturro plays macho bowler Jesus Quintana in this remake of the 70s French movie 'Balls', a title that applies to bowling as much as it applies to what he and his buddy have going for them. A trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.

To all of the haters.... That's just like. your opinion, man.
7 July 2020 | by geoff-253-401828See all my reviews

This movie was fun. The only way you can hate it is if you are expecting the rare gem that is Lebowski and nothing less. It has Walken in it.... How are you giving it 2 or 3 stars? Is it the best gift to film.....no, but still entertaining with a fun cast and story.
