Screen Strikes: Our Favorite Bowling Scenes from TV and Film

Blurry bowling ball in motion about to strike pins

Everyone knows bowling is fun! That’s why there are so many great bowling alley scenes in TV and film. Here are just 3 of the funniest bowling scenes in film:

The Big Lebowski

When it comes to bowling movies, it’s hard to beat The Big Lebowski! We especially love the opening credits scene as it’s essentially a love letter to bowling alleys. It perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the film as the camera lovingly showcases the wooden lanes, pin-deck, and ball return we’re all so familiar with. See what we mean below.

Men in Black 3

Men in Black 3 offers a more slapstick bowling scene. When an alien interrogation goes nowhere, Will Smith’s character breaks out some impressive (and ridiculous) bowling skills. Check out Agent J’s skills for yourself.

Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your Enthusiasm is full of awkward comedy, and when Larry goes to the bowling alley things are of course no different. An embarrassing shoe mixup is compounded in a way that only Curb Your Enthusiasm could pull off. (Don’t worry, your shoes are safe at Mid County Lanes!) Watch the embarrassing and bizarrely entertaining exchange for yourself.
