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. You will love the closing, naturally I do not want to give it away but the music in the closing scene of the movie was just perfect in setting the mood and emotion. I could watch it over and over.
Thumbs up on this one guys!!!!!!
