19 September 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

You might shed a tear, and the film has it's points, but Mr Reynolds have definitely done better. Not too bad a TV-movie, but the ending is oddly shortened and has scenes that are put in there to tie it all together I guess, in a hurry! Kids from the poor side of town want to play baseball, but need a coach. Burt turns up as if sent by God, in the shape of a bum that has lost his memory. The kids help their new coach and the new coach help the kids in return. And this is another small problem I have with the movie. The help the coach is giving is like a text book of possible problems kids from the age of 7 to 14 might have: parental issues, gang related problems, etc., most of them swiftly solved by force. Reba is swell, and does the job as one of the kids mom, and the kids are not bad at all.
