Plot Summary

When slacker friends Joe Cooper (Trey Parker) and Doug Remer (Matt Stone) are challenged to a pickup basketball game against some jocks, they counter by proposing to play a game they learned called "BASEketball," which combines basketball and baseball. In reality, they are improvising all of the rules, but somehow the sport becomes a hit. A promoter (Ernest Borgnine) forms a popular league, but after his death a rival owner (Robert Vaughn) wants to change the rules to increase profits.

    The pop-culture answer to a murder-suicide, the kind of flick that serves itself up as the object of its own satire. show more

    Not half-bad. It's about three- quarters bad, actually, but what's left offers some goof-off fun. show more

    Satire goes 'south' in gross mismatch of hot comic duo and "Airplane" director. [31 July 1998, p. 46]
