BASEketball [1998]

This is one of those wildly vulgar comedies full of scattershot jokes and random acts of silliness, directed by Airplane codirector David Zucker. For good measure, he's cast South Park creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, as a pair of slacker pals who invent a game (blending baseball and basketball) that takes the country by storm. Intended as a satire on the raging greed of professional sports, it trades extravagantly in rudely vulgar humor; the jokes are so numerous and fly in so many directions that they're bound to offend--and amuse--everyone at some point. A key aspect of the game: defending players get to psych-out their opponents in gross and insulting ways, which is where Parker and Stone shine. The film's real discovery is Dian Bachar, a tiny comic dynamo, who plays the team's most put-upon player. --Marshall Fine
