Lady Ballers is a 2023 sports comedy film directed and co-written by Jeremy Boreing that follows a down-on-his-luck former high school basketball coach named Rob.
In an attempt to reclaim his past glory, Coach Rob challenges his former team to pose as women and dominate multiple sports.
The outrageous premise sets the stage for plenty of hilarious antics as Coach Rob and his team stop at nothing to prove themselves, often resorting to ridiculous lengths.
With a talented cast featuring director Boreing himself alongside Daniel Considine, Jake Crain, David Cone, and Blain Crain, Lady Ballers promises non-stop entertainment and big laughs.

While comedy can be a powerful tool to highlight societal issues, “Lady Ballers” fails miserably in its attempt.
Rather than provide thoughtful satire, the film relies on tired transphobic tropes and stereotypes. It demeans both transgender people and women athletes through its mean-spirited premise.
The film mocks the legitimacy of transgender identities and perpetuates the unfounded myth that allowing trans women to compete with cisgender women in sports is unfair.
However, research does not support this claim. Trans women who meet sport governing body requirements regarding transition do not have inherent performance advantages.
Additionally, the movie derides women’s sports as an easy playing field ripe for male athlete domination. This fundamentally disrespects female athletes and the skill, dedication and strength required for women’s competitions.
Perhaps most egregiously, “Lady Ballers” attacks already marginalized groups instead of punching up at those in power. Good satire exposes societal hypocrisy; bad satire simply attacks minority groups. This film falls decisively in the latter camp.
While the film attempts to hide behind a guise of comedy, there is a fine line between humor and harm. Dehumanizing parody encourages discrimination rather than thoughtful discussion.
No matter one’s views on complex issues regarding gender and sport, “Lady Ballers” fails to further the conversation in any constructive way. Its one-dimensional stereotyping serves only to demean.
