Rawson Marshall Thurber possesses an amazing wit.
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story wins with comedy at literally every delivery.
Mr. Thurber is a person who understands the subtle nuances of life. I'm sure Dodgeball was a difficult sell, but the script, I imagine, is amazing to behold.
This film gets "freaky-naughty," as Ben Stiller's character, White Goodman, announces to Christine Taylor, who plays Kate Veach. However, you'd have to be rather confused to be insulted from this film. It delivers the non-P.C. in heaps, universally, to everything, and anything.
The writing, directing, acting, and delivery of the comedy . . . all are solid, and some moments are beyond solid, right toward perfection.
Thurber's a new entry to the Hollywood Kingdom. Before this excellent film, he was the guy behind the Reebok ad hit . . . "Terry Tate: Office Linebacker."
I really enjoyed Thurber's Terry Tate ads.
Thurber truly understands humanity, and he knows how to blend together some swell social satire.
