Storyline

Roy Dean Bream (Russ who co-starred on Boy Meets World) plays a veteran minor league hurler in 1957 tutoring young phenom fireballer Tyrone Debray (Plummer). This is Bull Durham taken seriously with cameos by Bob Feller, Duke Snider, Ernie Banks, Don Newcombe, Bill Mazeroski and Harmon Killebrew. A solid performance by Russ and Plummer but script wears down at the end. Well worth seeing though. Written by sandlot3

A powerful cinematic experience
18 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the most powerful cinematic experiences of my life. I had gone to the theatre to see another movie but it was sold out, so, on a whim, I bought a ticket to "Pastime". Not since "Five Easy Pieces" has a movie stayed with me for so long. I sat in my car for ten minutes after the movie unable to drive. That night I tried to tell someone about the movie but found that I couldn't talk about it. I still can not summarize it. Ten years after first viewing I still think about it. In a sort of elitist way I am glad that the movie never enjoyed mass appeal. This is not a "cool" movie designed for the ever changing fashions of the cool people. This is a hip movie. It will always be relevant as long as there are people who know what time it really is.
