From Amazon.co.uk

How's this for impressive trivia: Dodgeball faced off against The Terminal in opening-weekend competition, and 29-year-old writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber aced Steven Spielberg by a score of $30 to $18.7 in US box-office millions. That's no mean feat for a newcomer, but Thurber's lowbrow script and rapid-fire direction--along with a sublime cast of screen comedians--proved to be just what moviegoers were ravenous for: a consistently hilarious, patently formulaic romp in which the underdog owner of Average Joe's Gym (Vince Vaughan) faces foreclosure unless he can raise $50,000 in 30 days. The solution: a dodgeball tournament offering $50K to the winners, in which Vaughan and his nerdy clientele team up against the preening, abhorrently narcissistic owner (Ben Stiller) of Globo Gym, who's threatening a buy-out. That's it for story; any 5-year-old could follow it with brainpower to spare. But Thurber, Vaughan, Stiller, and their well-cast costars (including Stiller's off-screen wife, Christine Taylor) keep the big laughs coming for 96 nonsensical minutes. With spot-on cameos by champion bicyclist Lance Armstrong, David Hasselhoff, Hank Azaria, Chuck Norris, and William Shatner, and a crudely amusing coda for those who watch past the credits, Dodgeball is no masterpiece, but you can bet Spielberg was unexpectedly humbled by its popular appeal. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars A sport of Violence so obviously very FUNNY! 2 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
Dodgeball is silly. It is mad. It is mindless...
But it is also increadably entertaining and side-splittingly funny.
One of those movies where you can have an ultimately relaxing viewing.
The underdogs are the guys at Average Joe's Gym, where owner Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn) takes a low-key approach to the health and physical fitness of his loyal and eccentric members. This is in stark contrast to the high intensity environment across the street at Globo Gym, where White Goodman (Ben Stiller) has made narcissism an art form. La Fleur is informed by attorney Kate Veatch (Christine Taylor) that he has 30 days to come up with $50,000 or lose his gym to (wait for it) Goodman.
It looks like all is lost until the gang at Average Joe's Gym discover that the American Dodgeball Association of America is having its national tournament and the winning teams gets (wait for it) $50,000.
And the perfect partner for this movie would be the Anchorman!

3.0 out of 5 stars brilliant movie, poor value blu ray. 1 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have owned the DVD for years, and its one of my favourite movies, so now I am starting to move over to blu ray with my collection, I thought it was about time to replace this movie with a shiny new high def version.
The film itself looks really good, but where this blu ray disappoints is with the extras.
On the DVD you get commentary,deleted scenes, alternate ending, dvd rom content, bloopers, featurettes & trailers.
On the blu ray you get theatrical trailer, fox on blu ray & websites.
For a medium that gives you more storage space, there is no excuse for all the extra features being dropped.
Most blu rays will have the special features in standard def, which is fine, so why they felt the need to gyp the blu ray buying public is beyond me.

Film gets 5 stars, the blu ray only 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dodgeball 24 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
“Dodgeball” is one of those films that will either delight or simply annoy the viewer and a lot will depend on the mood you’re in when you watch it. Fortunately for me at least, I was suitably relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the film and found it extremely original and extremely funny.
Peter La Fleur is the down to earth good guy who’s also the owner of a rundown gymnasium called “Average Joe’s”. His sweatshop doubles as the home from home for a right old motley crew of social misfits, whether it’s the guy who’s convinced he’s a pirate, the chap with the mail order bride who hates him or the high school drop out who still pines for his high school girlfriend.
Unfortunately for the business side of Average Joe’s just opposite is the mega modern gymnasium complex “Globo Gym” run by the vain self-opinionated and quite bizarre looking White Goodman. In a twist of the plot that is only there to orchestrate the point of the film Peter must assemble a team to compete in the dodgeball championship in L.A. to win the $50,000 prize money and stop the foreclosure of his Gym by Goodman. Goodman of course raises his own team and from there on in, it’s “Game On!”
As I say it’s an extremely silly and ridiculous film and if you’re not in an easy mood when watching it, the antics may well serve to annoy more than entertain. The humour is quite pantomimic and there’s plenty of opportunity to boo the bad guys and cheer for the goodies. Ben Stiller makes a great panto villain and his outrageous portrayal of Goodman is right on the money.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
In its defense, you have to admit that "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" embraces every cliché in the history of sports with a sense of joy. More importantly, first time writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber manages to do this without being heavy handed, which is no mean feat. He accomplishes this because since this 2004 comedy is trying to work in every cliché in the history of sports underdogs (and sports underdogs movies) it has to really move along to get them all into the film. There is no gratuitous milking of the movement in "Dodgeball," because like the sport itself, the movie sends another ball whizzing at you and it is heading for one of three places: your head, your stomach, or right for the obvious metaphor.
The underdogs are the guys at Average Joe's Gym, where owner Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn) takes a low-key approach to the health and physical fitness of his loyal and eccentric members. This is in stark contrast to the high intensity environment across the street at Globo Gym, where White Goodman (Ben Stiller) has made narcissism an art form. La Fleur is informed by attorney Kate Veatch (Christine Taylor) that he has 30 days to come up with $50,000 or lose his gym to (wait for it) Goodman. It looks like all is lost until the gang at Average Joe's Gym discover that the American Dodgeball Association of America is having its national tournament and the winning teams gets (wait for it) $50,000.
What makes this film work is that both the clichés and the absurdities (the national champs of dodgeball only get $50,000?) are taken in stride by the characters, which makes it easier for the audience to go along with it as well.
