Dodgeball
2004
**
Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Cast: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Rip Torn, Gary Cole

An overrated comedy about a nice guy (but a lousy businessman) who takes his team to a dodgeball tournament in order to save his struggling gym from the clutches of a slimy competitor. There are some amusing cameos and one or two funny oneliners, but the story is maddeningly obvious and not nearly funny enough to compensate. Ironically, the film points out in the end titles how cliched and predictable it was.
