Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Shaolin Soccer

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball, as the saying goes; but what if your Iron Head technique can bend a wrench?

Sports comedies seem to be pretty formulaic - underdogs win; bad guys lose, there's sports involved. But are they similar, internationally? Dodgeball stars Wash, the pilot of Serenity and a Mac computer as they dodge wrenches, balls, and traffic to defeat Derek Zoolander's evil Gym. Shaolin Soccer stars both the leader and an aspiring member of the deadly Ax Gang as they teach the world about Shaolin Kung Fu by playing soccer and defeating the evil Team Evil.
