Overview

David Zucker directed this slapstick sports comedy starring South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Competing two-on-two against some basketball jocks, goofballs Joe Cooper Parker and Doug Remer Stone attempt to win by devising new rules while they play. Thus is born the bizarre game of "BASEketball." Rules: Court position decides whether a sunk basket counts as a single, a home run, or whatever; the opposing team can retrieve missed shots. Verbal abuse is allowed. Ditto for gross-outs -- or anything to annoy the shooter. The game becomes popular in driveways, so sports promoter Ted Denslow Ernest Borgnine proposes a deal to form a pro league. Dallas Felons owner Baxter Cain Robert Vaughn, hopes to increase revenues with product placements and pro endorsements, but he needs the okay of team owners. Ted dies during the season finals, leaving Cain to deal with his widow Yvette Jenny McCarthy. However, Ted willed the team to Cooper, who must win the upcoming season or ownership goes to Yvette. Cameos by Bob Costas and Al Michaels.

    BASEketball is BiG!

    Not JUST another sports movie, BASEketball has everything from romance to comedy. The movie first starts as two losers from highschool winning a $50 bet by craftily making up a game where you can do anything to make the others miss their shot. Ofcourse soon this game becomes national and Coop Cooper ( Trey Parker) and best friend Doug Remer ( Matt Stone) must play to keep their team. Involving all the comedy of south park, and all the talent of these two actors this movie was really enjoyable. If you are a fan of south park, or a fan of any comedy, i suggest you watch this, it's one of those movies you can watch over and over without getting bored. Do yourself a favor, go see BASEketball today!!! It is the best movie i have ever seen, good acting, hot guys, funny, a plot that makes sense, if you haven't seen it you truly are missing out!
