It is about time they put out a movie that you can watch just to feel good about something and have a good laugh. The last movie that was close to this was "Major League" which this was very similar to, but there were some aspects that made this better. It was the most unique roll I have ever seen Gene Hackman in and it was a very refreshing one at that. Even the music set the tone perfectly.

Thumbs up on this one guys!!!!!!
