Story


In the unsanctioned, underground and unhinged world of extreme Ping-Pong, the competition is brutal and the stakes are deadly.

Now, this outrageous new comedy serves up this secret world for the first time on-screen.

Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona (Tony Award winner Dan Fogler) is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez (George Lopez) recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and recapture his former glory, and to smoke out his fatherís (Robert Patrick) killer Ė one of the FBIís Most Wanted, arch-fiend Feng (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken).

But, after two decades out of the game, Randy canít turn his life around and avenge his fatherís murder without a team of his own. He calls upon the spiritual guidance of blind Ping-Pong sage and restaurateur Wong (James Hong), and the training expertise of Master Wongís wildly sexy niece Maggie (Maggie Q), both of whom also have a dark history with Feng. All roads lead to Fengís mysterious jungle compound and the most unique Ping-Pong tournaments ever staged. There, Randy faces such formidable players as his long-ago Olympics opponent, the still-vicious Karl Wolfschtagg (Mr. Lennon). Can Randy keep his eye on the balls? Will he achieve the redemption he craves while wielding a paddle? Is his backhand strong enough to triumph over rampant wickedness?
