We had no idea how much we needed more "Dodgeball" in our lives until this wonderfully ridiculous reminder.
Ben Stiller revived his over-the-top gym fanatic White Goodman for an Omaze charity video, with a "surprise" appearance from rival Peter LaFleur (Vince Vaughn) and his Average Joe team members, Kate (Christine Taylor) and Justin (Justin Long). Before long, Goodman was joined by his Globo Gym team, including Me'Shell Jones (Jamal Duff) and Fran (Missi Pyle).
The whole 4-minute video is fantastic, filled with little in-jokes from the 2004 movie, but the overall point is to raise money for charity, with fans given two choices -- Team Globo Gym or Team Average Joe's -- for the "charity dodgeball event of a lifetime." If you head to the Omaze site, it lists the details, including that the event benefits The Stiller Foundation, whose mission is "to support children around the world by providing educational opportunities to help them realize their full potential."
Watch the reunion video:Since they're already suited-up, can't we get that sequel now? Please?
