Movie Summary

Director:
David Zucker
Released:
1998
Rating:
R

BASEketball is an extremely humorous film starring two characters, Doug Remer (Matt Stone) and Joe Cooper (Trey Parker). Cooper, known as Coop, and Remer are two young adults who do not have much in their lives but each other. One night, they challenge two other men to a game of HORSE, but are too ashamed to call it that, so they make up their own game. This game is a combination of baseball and basketball. One shoots a basketball from a base and travels around the bases, continuing to shoot. This is how one scores, but the team on defense can psych them out and cause them to miss this way. This film turns into a love story as well as a comedy when Coop meets the girl of his dreams and loses his touch during the championship of BASEketball. Can Coop get it back together in time to score at the big game? This film is a classic comedy-love story.

      • Narrator: Soon it was commonplace for entire teams to change cities in search of greater profits. The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music.

      • Douglas "Swish" Reemer: We win, and they get the chicks. That sucks, dude.
        Joseph R. Cooper: I'm telling you, it's jobs. We gotta get jobs. Then we get the khakis. Then we get the chicks.
