More Info:
  • Kamal AL-Solaylee

    Stupendously silly but viciously funny.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Andy Spletzer

    The reason Balls of Fury works as well as it does, aside from its low aspirations, is because of the charm of Fogler in the lead. Like Jack Black, but not as sarcastic, he brings a winning enthusiasm to the role.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The first movie combining Ping-Pong and kung-fu and co-starring Maggie Q. How many could there be?

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    If it's not quite the best Will Ferrell movie he never made, Balls of Fury is, at the very least, a lot funnier than it has a right to be.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Even at just 90 minutes, Balls of Fury - with its caricatures of the Asian underworld, with its G-man malarkey and gay jokes (Feng keeps an all-boy bevy of sex slaves) - begins to outstay its welcome.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    The movie flaunts its ridiculousness and offers a relentless string of jokes about blindness, groin-bashing, and bodily odors.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    The good news is that Christopher Walken, resplendent in purple silk, isn't the film's sole redeeming element. The bad news is that even his arch-villain can't save Balls of Fury from losing bounce as the story proceeds.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Lisa Rose

    The shtick grows a bit repetitive, so by the end of the story you may be checking the time rather than rooting for Randy.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The few jokes it does land can't make this more than a look-what's-on-late-night-cable event.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    The real trouble is that it's supposed to be an outrageous comedy, but in fact it's fairly tame and not all that funny.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    In the grand tradition of "Beerfest" and "Bladels of Glory," this insistently ludicrous -- and not entirely unfunny -- two-joke comedy satirizes an old Hollywood standby: the big-comeback sports movie.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Marilyn Smith

    Ultimately even the strongest characters deliver mixed results.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Gene Seymour

    As disposable as aluminum cans without the promise of a cash return.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Kevin Crust

    A lifeless pingpong comedy that ricochets from one flat gag to the next.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Relentlessly silly in spoofing martial-arts movie conventions, Balls of Fury has roughly enough laughs for a first-class trailer but wheezes, gasps and finally goes flat through much of its 90 minutes.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    This is pretty thin soup, but the players are spirited and the jokes generally offbeat.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Add Balls Of Fury to the list of movies that not even Walken's moon-man delivery and oddball comic energy can save.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Intended as nothing more than a here-today, gone-tomorrow zany entertainment, and at the very least, it has a good-natured, slightly raunchy spirit about it. But ultimately, it's a hollow enterprise, all ping and no pong. It doesn't bounce; it splats. Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    The nicest thing is the Asian American actress known as Maggie Q.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Balls of Fury makes "Dodgeball" look like high art. It'll be tough to crack a smile, let alone laugh, during this uninspired and sophomoric satire of sports movies.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A mildly entertaining reworking of the Farrelly Brothers' superior micro-sport parody "Kingpin."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nathan Lee

    1. Balls of Fury is a movie about: a. A former table-tennis prodigy enlisted by the FBI to infiltrate the underground pingpong tournament of a legendary Chinese criminal. b. Suppository jokes.c. Little worth discussing and even less worth seeing.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Raunchier and somewhat more imaginative than “Hot Rod.”

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Mostly unfunny, extremely silly pingpong comedy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mark Bell

    Steer clear of Balls of Fury for as long as you draw breath. Period.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A joke of a title in search of a movie with a single good joke.
