A good movie

10 years, 7 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

Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) is a promising young bowler who pays a heavy price for defeating established pro, Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray). After years of getting by as a salesman, he comes across Ishmael Boorg, an Amish man who is keen on keeping his bowling talent a secret from his strict family. His reluctance to get involved with a big tournament in Reno is broken when he learns of financial difficulties within his community.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: June 13th Via: iTunes Store Plot: Years after his bowling hand was mangled, a bowling prodigy hopes to mentor a promising bowler with the hopes of winning a $1 million tournament. Rating: 7.1/10 Why Did I Watch It? I've been meaning to watch this for years as this is another classic '90s Farrelly Brothers movie, but it has always eluded me, for whatever reason. I bought it on iTunes for cheap and finally gave it a whirl."
