BlackBall

The crazy National Lampoon guys are back with, no doubt another bent movie. This time the director is Mel Smith and the list of stars include: Paul Kaye, James Cromwell, Alice Evans, Bernard Cribbins, Johnny Vegas, Imelda Staunton, and Vince Vaughn.

The Story: In the world of spectator sports, there are of course the all time greats: Football, Rugby, Tennis, Golf and? Lawn Bowls...? In the sleepy seaside town of Torquay, on ?The English Riviera?, the game reserved for geriatrics and pensioners is taken VERY seriously. None more so than by the reigning champion Ray Speight (Cromwell), conservative and stuffy he has been Torquay?s home grown hero for over 20 years? but now his title is threatened. Cliff Starkey (Kaye) a young pretender from the wrong side of town, is daring to go up against him. Armed with his sexy bad-boy persona, a flashy American agent Rick (Vaughn) and an army of screaming female fans, Cliff is a fresh and exciting new sex symbol in the game. In fact, he is fast turning Lawn Bowls into the biggest spectator sport in England - possibly the World!!! To add insult to injury, Cliff?s biggest fan is his new girlfriend Kerry (Evans) Ray?s daughter!

These movies have varied greatly from being great to sucking , so see this at your own risk. I have included the link to the trailer to help you decide.
