    Yes, why are there no movies featuring badminton as an integral part of the script? Everyday we see football, basketball movies. Why not badminton?

    This movie is very funny! Can't wait to watch it. Too bad badminton doesn't have any movie. Hope they make a badminton movie like Shaolin Soccer type.

    i believe this ball of fury movie was inspired by the original theme of 'shaolin soccer' or 'kung fu soccer', and of course the kung fu's of kung fu film, the 'king fu hustle', both by stephen chow.

    I even heard from the ball of fury trailer a sound track that was used by shaolin soccer as well.
