Yeah, it's cool its directed by David Zucker, who if you dont know, directed, Airplane, Naked Gun, Kentucky fried movie, and many other classic spoof movies, he's basically the creator of the spoofs and it's good to see him getting back into it.

See, read this. I told you Jim Abrahams had something to do with it all!
While Abrahams tries to milk the old ZAZ formula for more riches (and coming up mostly dry), one of his former cohorts, David Zucker, tries to modernize it by incorporating the background-gag style into a '90s lowbrow, gross-out comedy. The result, however, is simply disastrous. BASEketball, about two losers (Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the cult hit TV series South Park) who create a baseball/basketball hybrid that becomes the national pastime, is a painfully unfunny would-be satire of the commercialization of professional sports--or, rather, it initially sets out to be a satire, with its sharply written prologue about how money became the center of all things athletic. But once that passage is done, Zucker, Robert LoCash, Lewis Friedman, and Jeff Wright's script degenerates into a tedious series of unamusing and rather forced gross-out gags, such as milk squirting from male nipples and the licking of a vibrator. There was only one funny gag, and that was when a familiar buddy-buddy reconciliation scene culminated not in a warm hug, but in a long, wet, tongue-heavy kiss (now that I've given that joke away, there's no reason for you to see the movie). As actors, Parker and Stone are... well, creators of a cult cartoon show. One has to wonder about Universal's marketing campaign that boasts "starring the creators of South Park." I'm a big fan of The Simpsons, but that doesn't mean I'll watch a film starring creator Matt Groening.
