MORGAN’S MOVIE REVIEW
This week I watched a poignant film about two best friends who discover that their business has been using child labour without their consent. Even worse, this information is used to blackmail them in to abandoning their principles. BASEketball, made in 1998, is a great film which does not let its comedy get in the way of its morality. It is a film about valuing your friends, staying true to your principles, and telling the truth. Sure, they filmmakers had to throw in some low-brow jokes to appeal to a wider audience, but this movie is more than just a wacky comedy.
On the other hand, BASEketball does an excellent job at being a wacky comedy, as well. This should come as no surprise considering it stars the creators of South Park and was written and directed by David Zucker. So, if you’re a fan of South Park or Zucker’s earlier classics such as The Naked Gun or Airplane, then this is the perfect movie for you. It is endlessly quotable, highly satirical and the countless sight-gags reward you for repeated viewings.
