"OK"

Kingpin Review


There's nothing like a good Amish movie. But throw in a bowling movie as well, and you've got yourself, well, something pretty asinine, but something pretty damn funny, too. Harrelson is a once-great bowler, now washed-up on account of losing his hand. Quaid is his Amish protege, and together they attack the pro circuit, along with vixen Angel, who doesn't seem to have been vaulted into starletdom the way she meet have hoped. Bonus points for Murray's (the arch-rival) god-awful hairdos, plus check out the DVD for added footage.
