Storyline

Ryan Dunne, a nice high-school kid, who works hard mowing lawns for dad Sean's firm, is caught between loyalty to Sir, who cynically believes neither of his sons will even climb the social ladder, and big brother Mike, who scolds Ryan's lack of ambition to go all the way to be recruiter for for a baseball college scholarship, which Mike had to abandon due to a wound. To complicate matters, he falls in love with a snob client's daughter. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Curt Gowdy and Hank Aaron both make appearances in this film. Gowdy was the NBC play-by-play announcer in the booth when Hank Aaron hit home run number 715 to pass Babe Ruth on April 8th, 1974 in what was then known as Atlanta Stadium (later named Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium). See more »

Goofs

When Ryan's buddies are keeping track of the number of strikeouts that he gets in the last game by posting the 'K' signs they mistakenly post the Ks backwards when batters swing at the third strike. The backwards K is the baseball scorekeeping symbol for a strikeout in which the batter does not swing at the third strike. (Though this might be excused as character error). See more »

stupid, horrible, but it has Biel
9 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I'm gonna make this short and sweet. Stupid, inane dialog, ridiculous stereotypical characters, predictable story, horrible acting. I would have given it a 1, but Jessica Biel is worth 2 points by herself so I gave it a 3. She is the only reason to watch this awful excuse for a movie.
