Mockumentaries are all the rage these days… like Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, about an unlikely paintball hero. I’ve got a copy of the DVD to give away, courtesy of Shout! Factory. Here’s the scoop on the movie, from Shout!:

Starring Rob Corddry (TV’s “The Daily Show”, Old School), Blackballed is the story of Bobby Dukes, paintball’s first superstar, who returns to the game to prove himself after a scandalous fall from grace. Hailed by critics and festival-goers across the country, Blackballed brings together an uproarious troupe of comedy stars from the Upright Citizen’s Brigade for a freewheeling tribute to a sport that takes no prisoners.

Every sport needs a hero, and in the paintball hungry ‘90s, Bobby Dukes was the first. With his explosive style and unmatched charisma, he was well on his way to leading his team, The River Rats, to an unprecedented fourth “Classic” victory when the unthinkable happened. Bobby, attempting one of his signature moves, was shot. Desperate to stay in the game, he intentionally wiped the paint from his jersey, thus committing paintball’s most heinous crime, “wiping.” And, after an overzealous referee ejected Bobby, the three-time champ was banned from the sport for ten years and became the laughing stock of the paintball community. Deemed a cheater, disgraced and humiliated, he had no choice but to disappear.

Ten years later, an older and wiser Bobby returns to reclaim his title and erase the memory of his tainted past. He enters the Hudson Valley Paintball Classic but finds no self-respecting paintball player will be caught dead on his team. On the verge of giving up hope, he joins forces with the most unlikely of allies: the referee that caught him cheating. Now, the two improbable partners must recruit a team of paintball misfits and take back the paintball title.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the DVD at Amazon.
