The original hitman of paintball returns to reclaim his rightful crown in the one comedy that proves you're never too old for a killer comeback. Everyone knows that the name Bobby Dukes (Rob Corddry) is synonymous with the game of paintball, and when the teenaged Dukes led his team, the River Rats, to three consecutive wins at the East Coast's legendary Hudson Valley Paintball Classic, it appeared as if the game was finally about to break big due in no small part to Dukes' dead-eye aim and easygoing charisma. It was that fateful attempt at a fourth win that ultimately derailed Dukes' career as a triggerman, though, and after being shot during one of his signature moves, the three-time champion committed one of the most heinous acts in all of paintball -- wiping. Spotted by a keen-eyed referee and subsequently ejected for his attempts to cover up the telltale stain, Dukes' was devastated to become the laughing stock of the paintball community. Now, the time has come to let go of the past and lay claim to the future, and though no self-respecting paintball player would be caught stained on the team of a man who once wiped, Dukes is soon joined by the very same referee who exposed his deceitful transgression in assembling a ragtag team of underdogs and once again laying claim to the coveted Hudson Valley Paintball Classic title. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This movie really falls into a category that it might not have had to be in, but I really didn't see how it could have gotten out of it. This is a comedy that is largely not funny. And sort of not exciting either until the tournament kicks in, and then it moves almost entirely away from comedy.
I think this movie tried to follow the Christopher Guest style, but couldn't pull it off. And it brings in a lot more characters than it can juggle. It has a few good scenes and lines, but not enough. You can pass on this one. But just fine to watch to pass time if you have interest in...ahhhh, just pass.
I didn't actually finish this movie, but that doesn't speak at all to the quality. It's in fact a really hilarious entry into the Will Ferrell-plays-an-over-the-top-character-that-should've-been-an-SNL sketch-but-is-instead-an-awful-90-minute-movie genre, but without Will Ferrell and in a mockumentary style that suits the humor in a much better way than the bombastic style of wretched fare like Blades of Glory. I should really finish this.
This was kinda good, wasn't that funny though, more amusing. Still a solid effort from Corddry. Riggle was actually good in this, perhaps he wasn't acting. I was hoping for more of a dodgeball feel to it, but it did stay close to the "mockumentry" format.
