I cannot say that this is a well constructed film. The plot isn't eventhat impressive, at all. But what can't be denied is that this film isfunny. I don't know about hilarious, but i certainly laughed a lot init. And I was not the only one in the whole theater doing so. So, whilesome people are writing massive articles slamming this film, remember,it is not meant to be an epic masterpiece or spectacular film. It ismeant to be stupid and funny, and it certainly was that. It certainlysuffered from lazy script writing, but no one was trying for an Oscarhere. This is a pretty funny film, and the laughs in it cannot bedenied. To close this argument we only need the name of one character.Ipod.
N.B. this film should not be compared to Dodgeball, they are not in thesame league

This movie is a nonsense/spoof comedy, in the lines of The Airplane orNaked Gun, but it doesn't even come close to this two, because it lacksoriginality and a little more intelligent jokes, rather then justthrowing you with the same old easy jokes.
You can figure out some references to other movies, from the top of myhead I identified Dodgeball and Rocky, so you can have some fun withthat, trying to find out what movies are spoofed.
The movie also offers you an occasional laugh, but nothing that cancause you injuries, thus nothing really funny.
I liked the character IPod in some ways (even though some of the jokeswith him are standard comedy 101).
I think this movie (and like most of nonsense/spoof comedy) depends onthe mood you are in, so if you think you will laugh to any joke watchthis movie. If you are in a serious mood forget about this (re)watchThe Airplane instead, it will definitely make you laugh

The spoof genre, which has lacked creativity and humor for some timealready, gets spat upon yet again by hacks with no talent. No point, nofun, no originality; just a few cheap bucks for the film makers.
It takes more than just referencing some recent movies and givingcharacters double-meaning names to be satire; to make people laugh. Anyclod can pick up a cam-corder, and have some bad-acting buddies incheap costumes imitate somebody. Since the genre being targeted thistime is inspirational sports movies, there are a few lame referencesthrown out to movies of that type: the jokes are so weak the charactersactually have to emphasize the references in various ways, to get youto laugh hysterically. It doesn't work.
That's not comedy. However, the same old worn out sophomoric "jokes"ripped off from a middle school washroom (done even more blandly thanusual) are all here. If that's not enough, there's a running "gag" of abus running somebody over. So funny, right? Also, one pathetically poorscene does more product placement than Michael Bay; again with the sameunfunny results. A musical bit flops miserably. Pity Carl Weathers,once Apollo Creed in the Rocky series, now stuck with roles in swilllike this.
Lousy beyond words. Watching a snail run the marathon would be lesstedious than watching this film is. Probably a lot funnier, too.
Lambeau Fields lives a middle-class lifestyle in America along with his wife, Barb, and a gorgeous daughter, Michelle, who he has brought up as a son. Lambeau is a failure and has virtually given up on his career as a football coach. Then his friend, Freddie Wiseman, encourages him to re-enter this field, and he does so by re-locating to Plainfolk in Texas and joins the Heartland State University. It is here he will meet some of the most pathetic players, and quite disillusioned he goes about to find new-comers. He finds a kicker in Jasminder Featherfoot, provided of course, he keeps her involvement secret from the rest of her family. Then he finds Lance Truman, whose drag queen dad has brought him up more like a tom-girl. With these additions and others Lambeau sets forth to include his team in the next Super...Er...Toilet Bowl 2 series, and it is here that he will find that Lance fumbles a lot; Barb is not quite faithful as she seems; he will soon be in jail for Indecent Exposure; ...
