Norm MacDonald can be seen in some of the Globo Gym scenes; one is in the Globo Gym commercial, where he is in the background working out. At one point, he is talking to some girl who is working out, and it looks like he is hitting on her. See more »
After the German team loses in the first round, David Hasselhoff goes to their bench and throws down his picture. You can see that there is no glass in the frame when he is holding it but you hear glass break when the frame hits the floor. See more »
Yeah, I hope you're all happy now. Good guy wins, Bad guy loses. Big freaking surprise. I love happy endings. You know, that's the problem with... the American cinema: Can't handle any complexity in it, you know? "Don't make me think, I just wanna be entertained." All right, fine. You want a little something, something for the ride home? Check these boots out for size.

This is a funny film - so forget pretentious comments
This film is not intended to be a great work of art and no one will win an Oscar for it because it is just a film packed full of laughs that leaves you smiling afterwards - that is, with the exception of the few posters here bereft of any sense of humour.
I am not a great Ben Stiller fan - generally, I find him rather unfunny but he scores highly in this film and Vince Vaughn also deserves recognition among others for fine comedic timing.
The guest appearances also add to the general fun and the wheelchair-bound coach, played by Rip Torn is just a hoot.
This is definitely one to hire from your local rental shop - me, I'm going to buy the DVD!
