Balls of Fury (2007)

Rated: PG-13
Grade: DCDF=D-
Budget: $23 million
Box Office: $33 million US, $2 million int’l, $7 million DVD

Directed by: Robert Ben Garant, whose primary pedigree is Reno 911, which should have told me everything I needed to know about this film.
Starring: Dan Fogler, Christopher Walken, George Lopez, Maggie Q, and James Hong, with a bunch of cameos.

Gay sex slaves, kicking people in the crotch, and a ping-pong tournament of champions where all the losers get killed by poisoned blowdarts. Yes, I hoped beyond hope that Christopher Walken might make this film funny. He did not, and it was not. My best suggestion for you is that if you enjoy Reno 911, perhaps you’ll like this. I hated the 28 seconds of Reno 911 I’ve experienced in my life, and I wish I had avoided this movie. Simple.
