  • The real trouble is that it's supposed to be an outrageous comedy, but in fact it's fairly tame and not all that funny. show more

  • Balls of Fury makes "Dodgeball" look like high art. It'll be tough to crack a smile, let alone laugh, during this uninspired and sophomoric satire of sports movies. show more

  • Even at just 90 minutes, Balls of Fury - with its caricatures of the Asian underworld, with its G-man malarkey and gay jokes (Feng keeps an all-boy bevy of sex slaves) - begins to outstay its welcome. show more

    Glad it rented this one. It was reasonably entertaining and funny in parts, but overall fairly stupid. If I would have dropped $40.00 at the theaters for the family to see this one, I would have been really upset. But, $5.00 at Blockbuster--I was OK with that.

    Mr. Guzman has grand ideas and no one to back him other than a couple of backroom pocket fillers. Why is it that everyone here knows that Mr. Guzman didn't have the money to put up to purchase Grider Hill but yet if you check Kentucky records there is not a single person listed on ANY records other than himself, Mike Lawson, or two UFO's that he names Kimo Oheheffeen and J Euzoan? Heck anyone with Google can play games with this all day......... \n\nLet's try a few shall we????????.....\n\n"We're not trailer manufacturers, we're home builders," said Vice President of Finance John Guzman. "If we can help, and the government wants us to, ... then we would increase our plant production."\n\nTHIS IS A QUOTE FROM MR. GUZMAN HIMSELF AS HE along with some others publicly takes advantage of Hurricane Katrina victims.\n\nLet's try again.............\n\nHe then handed a $500,000 check to Blue Water Park Models, Inc. owners, Mike Lawson and John Guzman, money from a CDBG grant which will help their business.\n\nWow. Thanks for that Ernie. And he wonders why he didn't get re-elected........HHHmmmmmmmm now if I am reading that article correctly Blue Water Park Models, Inc. received that money on a promise that they are going to create jobs for Kentucky and to fulfill that "goal"(used loosely) they have to have provided 25 verifiable jobs within 24 months......Now considering that article was published in October of 2005 can someone besides Mr. Guzman please tell me where Blue Water Park Models Inc. is located and how many employees they currently have??? They have a great website but since their "news flash" still says Gov. Fletcher gives grant etc, etc, all.........follow the trail and there is not a single link that has been updated or talked about since early 2006 and this includes whatever trailer park "association" that so highly brags about Blue Water Park models.......

    This was an interesting movie. Even though the ending was kinda flat, the movie overall was better than i thought. Go see this movie. I would give it a 9/10.
