DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story is a 2004 American sports comedy film produced by 20th Century Fox and Red Hour Productions, written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller. The film focuses on a rivalry between the owners of Average Joe's, a small gym, and Globo-Gym, a competing big-budget gym located across the street. Peter LaFleur (Vaughn), the owner of the smaller gym, has defaulted on his mortgage and enters a dodgeball tournament in an attempt to earn the money necessary to prevent his gym from being purchased by White Goodman (Stiller), the founder of Globo-Gym and Peter's arch-rival, who plans to build a new Globo-Gym parking lot for their gym members. White soon enters the tournament with his team when he becomes determined to ensure that Average Joe's gym fails. DodgeBall received generally positive reviews, including a 70% aggregate rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and grossed more than $167 million worldwide.
