A good movie

3 years, 10 months ago at Dec 17 11:27
To be honest, I have never been a fan of the Farrelly brothers’s work. Indeed, I completely despised ‘Dumb & Dumber’ and I really didn’t like much ‘There’s something about Mary’. Last time, I saw one of their last movies, ‘Hall Pass’, and it wasn’t really good either. Still, they made a couple of good movies and this one is definitely one of them, at least, that’s my opinion.... read more

Description: Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) was raised to be the best bowler in the world (trained early on by his father). But a fellow bowler, Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray) and a misunderstanding with some rough punks, leaves poor Roy with the loss of his bowling hand! Not to let this get him down, he gets a prosthetic hand and becomes a traveling sales man. But it's really all down hill for him from that night on until ... One day he meets Ishmael (Randy Quaid) who's a Quaker that sneaks away from the farm to bowl (his fellow Quakers would disown him if they knew)! Roy convinces Ishmael to let him be his trainer and he'll make him the best ... (more)

A Complete Review of the Farrelly Brothers' work (13 movies items)

" Cast : Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, Vanessa Angel, Bill Murray What was it about? A star bowler whose career was prematurely "cut off" hopes to ride a new prodigy to success and riches. My two cents: The weird thing with this movie is that it is one of the most obscure features delivered by the Farrelly brothers, a movie they made between their 2 biggest success, ‘Dumb & Dumber’ and ‘There’s something about Mary’ and, even though it was barely noticed when it was released, I th"

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"Funny film-makers the Farrelly brothers decide to take a crack at the whole "against all odds" type of sport story-lines that made others films like Rocky, Visionquest and the Karate Kid all winners. In this one, Woody Harrelson plays a bowling prodigy who has been dealt a "bad hand", and sees within an Amish bowler (Randy Quaid) the kind of "lucky strike" that can put him back in the game. Hitting the road to Reno for a tournament with a big cash pot, their trip ends up encountering the kind"

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2010 (50 movies items)

"UNDER THE RADAR Woody Harrelson Harrelson has received well-deserved attention, and two Oscar nominations, for his work in heavier films like The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Messenger, but it could be argued that he’s never been better than as the immensely gifted, now incredibly down on his luck, Roy Munson in the Farrelly brothers’ kind of wrong, deeply funny Kingpin. A bowler whose life thoroughly runs off the rails after he loses his hand in a ball return, Munson is a disaster. Harrelson"
