Film Review: Balls of Fury (Rogue Pictures, 2007) by Devin J. Meaney

Film: Balls of Fury
With Dan Fogler, Christopher Walken, George Lopez, Maggie Q, James Hong and Terry Crews
Written by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant
Directed by Robert Ben Garant
Distributed by Rogue Pictures
Release date: August 29, 2007
A movie I recently checked out was “Balls of Fury”. I didn’t know what to expect when I threw this on the screen but after watching I have no problem saying that this film was genuinely hilarious.
The pacing may have been a bit quick—but that is the only negative thing I have to say. There was loads of hidden humor and many parts were “more than” giggle worthy. I watched this early in the morning while everyone else in the house was asleep but I still had to stifle at least a handful of full on belly laughs.
I expected Christopher Walken and Dan Fogler to really bring in the most laughs but some of my favorite parts of this were brought forth by James Hong and Diedrich Bader (Diedrich played Oswald on the Drew Carey show). A blind kung-fu ping pong guru who loves prostitutes and a male sex slave seem to have stolen my heart in this one and in the long run I would absolutely watch this movie again.
To make a close—yes—this one was an absolute win! -Devin J. Meaney
