"It's Bill Murray who easily swipes the picture - he's at his unctious best as Ernie McCracken, an oily bowler with an ego as enormous as his libido." - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing

"One of the joys of the film is that you can't see a lot of the laughs coming...a very funny movie." - Roger Ebert

Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson - visiting the University of Iowa on January 26) is a young bowler with a promising career ahead of him until a disreputable colleague, Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray), tricks him into participating in a con game that ends with Roy's bowling hand crippled for life. Years later, Roy ekes out a hardscrabble existence until he discovers Amish bowling phenom Ishmael (Randy Quaid). With the help of a gangster's girlfriend, he plots to take Ishmael to the top of the bowling world.
