Very enjoyable movie, maybe not the best comedy of all time, but quite a few chuckles. Woody Harrelson and Bill Murray put on quality performances, and a little bit of Vanessa Angel doesn't hurt either.

Maybe I just have an awful sense of humor, but I don't see how anyone can think Kingpin is anything less than a total riot - and this is coming from a person who thinks that Adam Sandler movies are about as amusing as waking up to find Maybe I just have an awful sense of humor, but I don't see how anyone can think Kingpin is anything less than a total riot - and this is coming from a person who thinks that Adam Sandler movies are about as amusing as waking up to find your entire family murdered and your tires slashed. Luckily, a few big-name critics are on board with me for my love of this nasty, inspired idiot's epic. Harrelson is simply incredible, bravely throwing himself into this despicable part and making himself look awful at every turn. As his nemesis, Bill Murray might be the first actor to ever be upstaged by his own hair. A classic that has only improved with age. Expand

Don't take this too seriously. Very left of centre humour. I loved it.

You know what? I don't care about what the whole universe may say negatively about this movie. This is one of my favorite 'underdog' films of all time. The fact that this film is also funny is actually BESIDE the point for me. You know what? I don't care about what the whole universe may say negatively about this movie. This is one of my favorite 'underdog' films of all time. The fact that this film is also funny is actually BESIDE the point for me. This movie is an inspiration to anyone who wakes up one day and finds themselves ten years past their 'prime', not where they planned to be ten years prior, and totally 'Munsoned'~ but still choose to refuse to give up on life. Of all the critics Ebert was the only one who really got it right this time. Expand

43/100 from critics? WOW! I wouldn't want to know anybody who doesn't think this film is funny. It's the greatest comedy of all time. The Farrelly's were on fire in the mid to late 90s and this was their best.
