BALLS OF FURY poster slaps across the Internet...

Hey folks, Harry here... want to see a filthy PG poster for a movie called BALLS OF FURY? Here's their wildly phallic poster - yet palpable for children of all ages. Don't you think? Meanwhile there's a hilarious cast - including Christopher Walken, Maggie Q, MASI OKA, Patton Oswalt, George Lopez, Dan Fogler, Jason Scott Lee, David Koechner, Brian Posehn, Jim Lampley and many more. But none of that is really on display here... here, you get the visual Pun of it all...

    It looks like a penis, with testicles. Is that it?

    OH! I get it now. It looks like a penis and testicles. How trite. That said, I think this will make me laugh.

    hope it succeeds conceptually where DODGEBALL failed

    by George Newman

    dodgeball failed by not constructing an alternate reality setting in which dodgeball was the most popular sport in the world. ZOOLANDER was so great because of how important they made male modeling appear in that particular society. it wasn't hidden away on THE OCHO. Making Dodgeball an obscure sport is where they messed up i feel. If BALLS OF FURY wants to succeed, then there had better be a setting in which Table Tennis is the most spectacular event in the universe. (Some of the IMDB picks of the ridiculous costuming give me hope)

    BALLS OF FURY: rated PG-13

    by Charlie Murphy

    huh

  • April 23, 2007, 6:16 p.m. CST

    Yeah have to agree...

    by jimmy_009

    ...this all direct from Dodgeball, puns and all. Still might be a funny movie.

    dodgeball was great, and im loving the idea for this

    the trailer looks great, christopher walken is just too good

  • April 23, 2007, 6:20 p.m. CST

    Actually, the two balls in the flame above the title...

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    is more "disturbing" than the paddle with the two balls.

    I absolutely love them, but wasn't this supposed to come out a year ago? The trailer looks like crap, I don't think I'll be catching this one in theaters at least.

    WTF?

    Sums it up nicely.

    Cool. A ping pong paddle.

    by mrfan

    I love to use one of those when I get a date.

  • April 23, 2007, 6:32 p.m. CST

    IT'S A FAKE!!!!!!!!!

    by Womb2dooM

    I photoshopped this last week! You can tell because the shadows on the balls don't exactly line up with the shadow detail on the paddle.

    PG-13? Ugh.

    by Cheif Brody

    C'mon, Hollywood...Show some frickin balls!! They are singlehandedly slitting their own desperate throats releasing this type of movies to the PG-13 crowd. The thinking is...release it theatrically to the widest possible audience...then have the "unrated" DVD release with all the shit they SHOULD have put in the theatrical version. Unfortunately....I'll skip this movie's release, as I did with Dodgeball, and rent this sucker later..."unrated"...but only if it gets good reviews theatrically. My point? I won't be spending my hard earned cashh on the lame PG-13 version...and I won't rent/buy the unrated version it's the crapfest I'm expecting. So...it's a LOSE/LOSE for Hollywood. These "unrated" DVD releases are going to hurt box office opens eventually....and this flick looks like a perfect example of that.

    a dick and balls. I saw the trailer in front of "Hot Fuzz" and while there might have been a couple of little chuckles, this movie looks like what I like to call crap.

    i dont know...

    by loafmeat

    See.. I saw the trailer yesterday before the hilarious and brilliant "Hot Fuzz" and I caught myself laughing hard during this "Balls of Fury" trailer... then they said "From the people who brought you Reno911..." and i thought, ahh fuck this will be a stinker. I am a big not-fan of Reno911 and an even bigger hater of the even less funny "Halfway Home".

    jfp2006, it was a joke, and I prefer "choad"

    by Bronx Cheer

    <p>It was so unnecessary for Harry to point out the "joke" of the poster that I felt it worth making a stupid little joke highlighting how stupid you'd have to be not to understand that this movie might employ a double entendre here and there.</p> <p>What I found very disturbing was why Harold would dare to use the word "palpable" with regard to children. Does Harry know that the word refers to touching or handling? Is he slyly suggesting that he would like children to palpate his "balls of fury?"</p> <p>Oh, jfp2006, that's a joke, too. So is this: A horse walks into a bar. The bartender looks over at him and says, "Hey, why the long face?"</p> <p>Oh, and jfp2006, when I wrote the headline and included "I prefer 'choad'" that could be taken to mean that I prefer the spelling "choad" over "chode" or that I like the big hangy-down thing. It was sort of a joke as well.</p>

    I really like the realistic direction they're heading with this.

    that no one has any balls when it comes to movies anymore.

    oh and when it comes to "Dodgeball"...

    by Charlie Murphy

    i'm very happy that even with all this "dodgeball" talk, no one has claimed that was a good movie. because it wasn't. it was total pile of shit. i didn't genuinely laugh once throughout that whole movie. NOT ONCE. godammit...

  • April 23, 2007, 9:58 p.m. CST

    Fuck this movie.

    by El Scorcho

    The trailer in front of Hot Fuzz made people laugh like it was the funniest thing they'd ever seen. In "reality," it sucked ass. Fuck this movie.

    I saw the trailer a few months ago.

    by oducerproducer

    It was in front of let's Go To Prison or Tenacious D i believe. So if it comes out in the fall, i wonder why the long wait, to me, that means crap.

    DODGEBALL WAS HILARIOUS

    by Captain Mal

    and I'm one of those annoying fucking elitists who voluntarily re-watch foreign, indie, and classic films. If you don't think "Dodgeball" was a supremely funny example of farce storytelling, I feel nothing but pity for you. Joes vs. Cobras--thank you, Rawson Thurber.

    It's a huge market - for now...

    by MonkeyManReturns

    Dodgeball was funny - it just was, and those that think otherwise are well...poo lickers...Talladega Nights was pretty bad and Blades of Glory did the job - just about...upcoming Semi-Pro will be another hit and miss type comedy...and I would imagine that Balls of Fury will be completely out there - a "WTF" type film which may surprise us all with its lunacy!! Or, it may just be ballsacks! I hope for the former! In my opinion, if we can have countless chick flicks, porn-horror flicks, bad teen movies, Lindsay no talent lohan flicks, we can certainly have sport comedies...Can't wait for one on cricket - Dead Men Playing, Dead Men Watching.

    Actually heard somebody say "I hate that guy" Re:Walken

    by finky089

    Everybody's entitled to their opinions, of course. But I was in the theater the other weekend and some guy a few rows behind me says something about Walken. The guy he's with says, "Oh, I hate that guy. He can't act." <p> Well, I nearly bitchslapped the young punk. <p> Say what you want about some of his "paycheck" roles (coughWaynesWorld2cough), but the guy's proven talent (Dead Zone, Deerhunter, Suicide Kings, Pulp Fiction. Hell, I'll even give him Bioloxi BluesHe WAS that drill insructor when I was a kid and hadn't seen Full Metal Jacket yet!) I was just stunned to hear it. Almost as much as when I saw a trailer for "Stomp the Yard" and some Dad behind me said to his kid "Oh snap!" right after the trailer ended.

    Choad vs. Chode

    by Banky the Hack

    It's not just a spelling debate. Choad is the fleshy fun bridge, the "taint" as it twere. Chode is a penis that is wider than it is long. As in, "I've heard that guy's got a chode...he's hung like a can of tuna."

  • April 24, 2007, 5:55 p.m. CST

    Aw man

    by TheNorthlander

    I thought it said Tounges of Fury. I want my Kung Pow sequel!

  • April 24, 2007, 11:15 p.m. CST

    Choah vs. Chode vs Taint

    by Bronx Cheer

    <p>By way of clarification...and this is just one man's opinion..."choad" is specifically a penis that's wider than it is long, which is terribly sad...the character in Vonnegut's "Breakfast of Champions" had a choad--his penis was shaped like a can of tuna. "Chode" can be both the tuna-can penis, or the perineum, also known as the taint, twernt, gooch, and other swell names.</p> <p>Thus endeth the lesson.</p>

    Awesome

    by nyhillbilly

    Balls of Fury is gonna be awesome. What's with everyone being so trite about it being a rip off? Isn't every movie a rip off of something or another? In any case, movie looks hilarious - let's take this for what it is people, just a funny movie about balls. Cant wait!
