PG-13 | | Comedy, Sport
A group of misfits enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament in order to save their cherished local gym from the onslaught of a corporate health fitness chain.
According to many cast members, the hardest part of filming the dodgeball scenes was not flinching when they knew they were about to be hit by a ball.
Peter La Fleur:
Well, if you can't raise fifty thousand dollars with an impromptu carwash, I guess it just wasn't in the cards.
In the dodge ball training video, when Young Patches O'Houlihan is first introduced, he's holding a cigarette in his left hand, in subsequent shots the cigarette disappears.
At the end of the credits, there's a bizarre rant from White Goodman to the audience with his comments on the film's ending and a related odd musical interlude.
To ensure a PG-13 rating, two lines were changed in the US version:
$30,070,196 (USA) (20 June 2004)
