Trivia

Goofs

In the last game, Eddie wins by using his shoe as a decoy. In tournament paintball, leaving a piece of clothing behind is considered cheating, and Sam would have won. See more »

Quotes

Jill Watson: Sam Loves me, and Sam has always loved me, and you know that Sam was never actually dating me, but he remained celibate, the entire time that we weren't together? He would write me notes that I wouldn't respond to because I was dedicated to bobby, that would just say "I'm not fucking anyone... but you in my head". And I thought, after awhile, how can I just reject that? That is just really, really, really dedication.

Help spread the word about this great hilarious movie...
14 June 2004 | by rorygatorSee all my reviews

This is by far one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Rob Corddry (Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart) is supported by the cast of Upright Citizens Brigade (an improv comedy troupe from NYC which branched off for a show on Comedy Central) in this phenomenal mockumentary about the world of the paintball sub-culture.

Blackballed is currently making the round on the independent film festival circuit, and has racked up awards at SXSW (South by SouthWest Film Festival) and LPFF (Lake Placid Film Festival).

At the present time, Blackballed is still seeking distribution for release, but because of its network clout with Corddry, and an overwhelmingly positive audience response, it is sure to be out within the year either as a release in theaters nationwide, or else as a special on cable TV.
