Kingpin (1996)

This is a solid movie. A young bowling champion’s future is derailed when a bet goes awry and a gang of men crush his right hand. The next seventeen years of his life are so bad that his name becomes a synonym for failure. When he meets an Amish man with great bowling potential, Roy Munson (Woody Harrelson) decides to become his manager so they can attend a million dollar tournament in Reno, Nevada. Ishmael (Randy Quaid) has lived a very sheltered life in his rural community, but he will soon experience several of the vices that the outside world has to offer.

Professional bowlers Mark Roth and Randy Pedersen have cameos in the film.
