16 Years Ago, Average Joe's Gym Defeated The Globo Gym Purple Cobras In Las Vegas
Can you believe it? Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story is officially 16 years old today.
If you haven't had the pleasure of watching this 2004 classic then let me tell you about the story of how Average Joe's Gym did a Leicester City by winning against all odds.
Sit back, relax and let the memories flow.
In the film, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn are rival gym owners who eventually compete against each other in a Las Vegas Dodgeball tournament.
Stiller, who plays the brilliantly crude character White Goodman, has some of the biggest talents in Dodgeball on his 'Globo Gym' team, including Fran 'Monobrow' Stalinovskovichdavidovitchsky.
Peter LaFleur, on the other hand, hasn't exactly got the most athletic bunch at his disposal but he is determined to defeat their rivals and will go to extremes to win.
In the story Average Joe's Gym are on the verge of closing and need $50,000 to remain active, so what better way to raise the funds by entering the Champions League of Dodgeball tournaments in Las Vegas.
By some minor miracle, the gang manage to get through to the final thanks to iconic performances from Kate Veach, Gordon and Steve the Pirate.
They then combine to produce this incredible team effort against their biggest rivals. Take it away, guys:
Can we please, please, please have a Dodgeball 2? I mean, it has been 16 years and we really need our fix.
