Beer League is raunchy and tacky, but it's a hell of a lot funnier than something like Failure To Launch.

Stephen Whitty
Newark Star-Ledger

Does the movie hit a home run? Hardly. But it's at least a single.

Tony Macklin
Las Vegas Weekly

This is a foul ball of a comedy -- a raunchy, raucous frat party.

New York Times

Artie Lange, Howard Stern's radio sidekick, somehow manages to make beer-league softball seem no fun at all in this extremely lowbrow comedy.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

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.

Brian Orndorf

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.

Philadelphia Inquirer

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.

Stephen Williams

The inanity is harmless, thoroughly predictable and ultimately disposable.

Christopher Null

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

A lowbrau comedy.

This movie's a lot like it's star, Artie Lange--it's slovenly, crude and an overall waste, but can somehow pull it together by the end while… More
