Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

Grab life by the ball.

Taking the mickey out of underdog sports movies, this 2004 comedy stars Vince Vaughn (the good guy) and Ben Stiller (the egotistical jerk) as rivals in competing fitness gyms that duke it out in a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament. Co-stars Christine Taylor (Zoolander), Rip Torn (Men in Black), Justin Long (Drag Me to Hell) and Alan Tudyk (Serenity).

Hilariously fake and rude. And thus true and tonic, if you know what I mean.

The story is pretty funny, and the film's outlandish takes on sports-movie conventions deliver some laughs.

In a miraculous gift to the audience, 20th Century-Fox does *not* reveal all of the best gags in its trailer.
