Kingpin (1996)

Directors: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly

Writers: Barry Fanaro & Mort Nathan

Stars: Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, Vanessa Angel, Bill Murray, Chris Elliott, William Jordan, Richard Tyson, Lin Shaye

Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) is a former state bowling champion whose hand was destroyed by gamblers.

Years later, broke and down on his luck, he gets a second chance when he meets an Amish bowling whiz named Ishmael (Randy Quaid). 

The two head for a million-dollar bowling tournament in Reno.

Bill Murray is excellent in a small role as Munson's nemesis.

The Farrelly brothers are quite good at making raunchy, disgusting films with characters that we can still care about.

This film also boasts an excellent soundtrack.
