An unemployed, alcoholic thirtysomething who still lives with his mother and can't seem to muster the motivation to turn his life around finds that all's fair in love and softball when his team is threatened with ejection from the league in a raunchy sports comedy starring Howard Stern Show regular Artie Lange. For the sluggers from Ed's Bar and Swill, the weekly trip to the local diamond is more about drinking and roughhousing than it is about such technicalities as hitting home runs and striking out the opposing team.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Beer League is raunchy and tacky, but it's a hell of a lot funnier than something like Failure To Launch."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Does the movie hit a home run? Hardly. But it's at least a single."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"This is a foul ball of a comedy -- a raunchy, raucous frat party."
‑ Tony Macklin, Las Vegas Weekly
"When a small delivery of casual swearing from Seymour Cassell earns your movie's biggest laugh, there's definitely a problem."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Doesn't contain the average laugh quotient of half of Lange's daily Stern appearances, but its also far less obnoxious than non-fans would expect it to be."
‑ Erik Childress,
"Artie Lange, Howard Stern's radio sidekick, somehow manages to make beer-league softball seem no fun at all in this extremely lowbrow comedy."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"The sort of lowbrow sports comedy best enjoyed on a 50-inch screen with a six-pack, a bucket of wings and a fast-forward button."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Beer League is not for tender ears, but more for the beer-bellied, rascally rule breaker in all of us, and most importantly, there's a great chance something in here will make you laugh."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Now softball has its own seminal classic."
‑ Mark Bell, Film Threat
"Sitting through this film is like spending the night in that sleazy bar you swore you'd never go in, not even to use the bathroom."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable."
‑ Stephen Williams, Newsday
"a whole lot of lewd potty humor that doesn't really add up to anything substantial, a guilty pleasure of sorts when taken in small bursts, but which grows somewhat tiresome in the long run"
‑ Christopher Null,
"A cavalcade of colorful profanity, bachelor-party hooker gags ... and shopworn bodily function jokes, this vehicle for Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange is slob comedy at its slobbiest."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
