Product Description:

DAILY SHOW regular Rob Corddry takes the spotlight in this wonderfully silly mocumentary, starring as Bobby Dukes, a former paintball champion who gets one last shot at putting a paintball team together and competing at the highest level of the game. Dukes's career ended in shame after he "wiped" in a competition--yes, even the rugged Dukes wasn't above a little cheating, rubbing off a clear splash of paintball and continuing with the game as if he hadn't been hit. After 10 years in the paintball wilderness, Dukes returns to his hometown determined to assemble a kick-ass paintball team that will destroy everyone else in sight. There's just one problem: no self-respecting paintballer will go anywhere near Dukes, so he has to scrape together a team from some of the biggest misfits he can find, most of whom are more likely to paintball themselves or each other instead of gunning down the opposition.

A spoof of the sports movie genre that also has a lot in common with Christopher Guest movies such as BEST IN SHOW, BLACKBALLED is a neat vehicle for Corddry's first starring role in a motion picture. The supporting cast is mostly culled from the impressive improv comedy troup the Upright Citizens Brigade, and director Brant Sersen keeps the laughs coming thick and fast throughout. Sure, there are a few misfires, but the cast mostly hits the target with their mixture of carefully scripted material and quickfire improvisations, making BLACKBALLED a low-budget gem.
