The new head coach or co-assistant coach has no experience with tennis, or any other sport he says. I admit that some bits of the movie have been done before and there are a lot of clichés in it. Predictable is good as long as it's funny. I love the quiet comedy of this movie.
Sean William Scott had a promising career, that has stalled obviously as why else would he make a movie like this? I think the volunteer coach was supposed to be the normal one but he just came off as a dork. Everyone was so ridiculous it was hard to imagine these events in a non-movie setting. That scene does lead to the film's mandatory act of turmoil and challenge. Mike Jensen Brando Eaton is the only good player in a team of misfits. With a lame sport like tennis, it's not really something that can excite people.
The writers really have to be blamed here because I thought all the performers did their best with a very a bad script. There is snot, which is rude but well played, by both people in the scene. If you didn't like American Pie you won't like this. It is crude at times, but done better than any other movie I've seen that fits that title. Don't judge this movie by the title or the trailer.
I really didn't find the humour all that funny at all. I snickered, but still can't believe it. Sexy Blonde at Harvest Dance as Danielle Dwyer. But, since I'm a major fan of Seann William Scott, I just had to. Kevin Jones as Vincent Taylor. Keeping true to his strength comes his latest movie for our viewing pleasure: Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach.
I laughed all the way through it, and would compare it to Kingpin or the better American Pie movies. Was it supposed to even be understood in some degree, further than the intent to entertain? Instead, it's Sean William Scott. I feel that a better script could have helped here, and the pacing was quite clunky. Some of the jokes include a little girl cursing a lot one instance at the very end when a player is down, and she uses it as motivation , continuity jokes with a foreign Filipino student acting strange, an Asian grandpa laughing moronically, a few instances with midgets, and a lot of other gags and jokes involving the dialogue. Randy Quaid is funny as always here. Male Parent at Sports Meeting.
This film was really 2. Two Reviews- Read Both This movie is a. Still if you like raunchy this is a pretty funny show. Gary even recruits the weird foreign kid - a pro ping pong player from the Philippines. But for the light hearted comedy this film provides, it definitely deserves to show up as a blip on the viewers radar! And if you're not laughing the entire movie, you were lazy and should have watched a trailer, read a review, and known what you were in for. I enjoyed myself to the fullest and I would love to watch this comical sometime again in future.
He works on training Mike to win the trophy for the school. Both have a lot of similarities, similar type humour, both lead characters act alike except Houseman seems to be more sincere and care more about his players than himself- was less selfish. Tommy Tremble as Joseph Dwyer. But with all the other great comedies produced this year, 'Balls Out' falls very short of living up to any standard. It's basically about a former tennis star whom gets transfered to become a janitor then ultimately ends up coaching a senior tennis team to victory.
Its beauty , if I, like other critics have taken the liberty to judge it by their belief of where and how the humor misses its target, is in its sincerity of oddity and aloofness which it doesn't miss at all. Shame too, because deep down I like Seann William Scott. It's a whole lot of quirky reminiscent of other Danny Leiner movies. Brad Tuttle as Jon Overgaaw. Plus the real estate is cheap referring to a banged up motor home.
Not recommended for younger audiences though. That's all I can write and still be honest. Sadly, this movie misses the bromantic chemistry. This one doesn't star Will Ferrel or Vince Vaughan. The film was just too predictable and clichéd. Her line will make 99% of viewers gasp, and some snicker.
