7. Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004)
While 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story is not precisely Jason Bateman’s film, he arguably stole a number of scenes within the function of Pepper Brooks, an ESPN commentator who gives lewd, spacey, and just-plain-absurd suggestions concerning the dodgeball games-at-hand alongside Cotton McKnight (Gary Cole). The function is actually extra goofy and rambunctious than the character’s we’re used to seeing from the actor, however that freedom permits him to be a bit of looser and, arguably, funnier by absolutely embodying the kind of wild-and-out aspect character we hardly ever get to see him play.
Playing the supporting function again in 2004, when Bateman wasn’t a family title but, regardless of starring within the beloved, Emmy award-winning dysfunctional household sitcom, Arrested Development, the TV actor supplied quotable one-liners like “it’s a bold strategy, Cotton, let’s see if it pays off for them” and “usually, you pay double for that action, Cotton,” amongst others. While it is finally a really temporary function within the scheme of issues for him, that is additionally one among Bateman’s funniest roles.
