Grab life by the balls.

When megalomaniacal White Goodman, the owner of a trendy, high-end fitness center, makes a move to take over the struggling local gym run by happy-go-lucky Pete La Fleur, there's only one way for La Fleur to fight back: dodgeball. Aided by a dodgeball guru and Goodman's attorney, La Fleur and his rag-tag team of underdogs launch a knock-down, drag-out battle in which the winner takes all.

Voll auf die Nüsse

"Average’s Joe" ist eine altmodische Muckibude, geleitet von Peter Le Fleur. Bank-Anwältin Kate Veatch erklärt Peter, dass dem Fitnessclub die Übernahme durch die Groß-Kette "Globo Gym" droht, wenn nicht innerhalb eines Monats 50.000 Dollar zusammenkommen. Konzernboss White Goodman ist schon ganz heiß drauf, die Kaschemme seines ungeliebten Konkurrenten zu schlucken. Außerdem buhlen die beiden Männer um die Gunst der attraktiven Kate, die sich aber schnell auf die Seite der Underdogs schlägt und den affektierten Goodman abblitzen lässt. Um das Geld doch noch aufzutreiben, haben Le Fleur und seine Freunde eine Idee: Sie wollen bei den World Dodgeball Championships in Las Vegas teilnehmen. Der Sieger des Turniers erhält 50.000 Dollar. Nachdem das Team von "Average Joe’s" mit viel Glück die regionale Vorausscheidung überstanden hat, läuft alles auf den großen Showdown hinaus. Denn Goodman ist ebenfalls mit seinem "Globo Gym"-Team am Start, und das hat sportliches Weltklasse-Niveau..

Palle al balzo - Dodgeball

Dodgeball è un ulteriore capitolo della arcinota saga di assalto al botteghino da parte di Ben Stiller e compari. Il film risulta essere parente stretto del precedente Zoolander in quanto a demenzialità. Per il vecchio Ben un ruolo finalmente un pizzico diverso: lo ritroviamo infatti nei panni del cattivissimo e stupidissimo proprietario di una catena di centri di fitness, smanioso di globalizzare anche il più piccolo centro sportivo. Una modesta palestra di periferia cercherà di non farsi piegare economicamente puntando tutto sul primo premio del campionato di Dodgeball, che finirà, nemmeno a dirlo, con una sfida all'ultimo sangue tra i buoni e i cattivi.
