Distractions trump melodrama
29 November 2000 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I have trouble understanding how people can like this movie. The anti-racism message isn't bad, but what the movie lacks in subtlety it makes up for in cliché-yet another troubled cop with a drinking problem who works alone because he can't play nicely with others. Luckily, the ridiculous situations that occur throughout the movie distract you from the sledgehammer moral delivery and overdone characters.

--The movie is about baseball, but baseball action is laughable. The guy who is attempting to brake the hitting streak record swings like a t-ball player. Poorly fitting uniforms only reinforce this little league feel.

--Although "every cop in NYC" is at the stadium, none are around when you need them. There is a major shoot out on the baseball field during a game, but only one cop responds-ever. Later, the cop leaves the dead suspect all alone under the bleachers to check on his girlfriend.

--The lead federal law enforcement agent leaves the scene of the crime just before the crucial showdown also to check on the cop's girlfriend. That would have sounded great at the Waco hearings.

That said, if taken as a parody, the movie could be entertaining bad TV.
