Balls of Fury  

Posted by: Isabel in ,

In the unsanctioned, underground, and unhinged world of extreme Ping-Pong, the competition is brutal and the stakes are deadly. Now, this outrageous new comedy serves up this secret world for the first time on-screen. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and recapture his former glory, and to smoke out his father's killer ¿ one of the FBI's Most Wanted, arch-fiend Feng (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken). But, after two decades out of the game, Randy can't turn his life around and avenge his father's murder without a team of his own. He calls upon the spiritual guidance of blind Ping-Pong sage and restaurateur Wong, and the training expertise of Master Wong's wildly sexy niece Maggie, both of whom also have a dark history with Feng. All roads lead to Feng's mysterious jungle compound and the most unique Ping-Pong tournaments ever staged. There, Randy faces such formidable players as his long-ago Olympics opponent, the still-vicious Karl Wolfschtagg. Can Randy keep his eye on the ball? Will he achieve the redemption he craves while wielding a paddle? Is his backhand strong enough to triumph over rampant wickedness?

So... this movie had its funny laugh out loud parts. The guy who played Randy had some funny facial expressions. However... it was just ok. My husband thought it was hilarious though. Had to watch certain scenes over and over cause they had him cracking up.

Would I say rent it? No. Maybe wait for it come out free on demand.

And did not recognize Lt. Dangle (from Reno 911) as the german guy until the end. Ha ha.

Dude, I wanna see this movie but I'll wait for it to come on demand, I won't waste time putting it on my queue.

Speaking of netflix though, I'm the WORST at sending my movies back so I can get more movies. I seriously need to work on that.

I love the scene with the golden paddle invitation and everything thinks that guy's a genius because he deciphered the poem thingy. LOL

Rowena- ha ha. I'm always hounding joey to hurry and watch his movies so we can get our next movie. lol.

Ames- ha ha, that was pretty funny. The blind kept making me laugh.
