Excellent movie. Some mistakes though...
29 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is about an old man who didn't have a chance to play baseball when he was young, so his friend brings him to a "magical" man who changes him into a boy for 5 days. Once changed into a young boy, he is on a team the next day! (how convenient). The next 3 days he starts a relationship with a young girl on the team, delivers the coach's wife baby, and so much more. In the end (can it be even called an ending?) the boy is sadly turned back into an old man and the girls starts another relationship with her "ex boyfriend" The cost for these 5 days was a life...the friends life.

Some mistakes: Somehow the old man knows the girl's name in the beginning of the movie.
