Yes it was a bad movie but HEY...I was in it!

I was actually an extra in this movie and didn't get to see the finished product until much later. The movie was not great, that's true but after some research I found that this movie is based on a play and I think performing this show on stage may give it the endearing quality it lacks on screen. I spent 2 weeks in 2001 working on this movie. The direction was very good considering the seeming lack of budget that was present at the time. It was actually filmed at Varsity Stadium in Toronto and it was a blistering summer. I walked away as an extra earning my 8 dollars an hour and at the ame time feeling a proud and a new respect for all the extras in the movie industry.

An inaccurate representation of baseball fans

Author: Pluto_of_Pluto from Brick, NJ

One look at this movie and you will realize that none of the actors involved have ever been to a sporting event before. The acting is so p**s-poor you will be left with a urinary tract infection after watching it. I know some of these people really can act, but under Saul Rubinek's direction they all look like a bunch of hacks. The story itself is boring and nonsensical. The final product comes off as a putrid translation of a terrible play. People's problems cannot all be solved in the span of one baseball game. If they could be solved as quickly as they are here, it wouldn't be called life that we are living. It would be The Cosby Show. Rubinek should stick to stinking up the screen with his acting performances and leave directing up to someone with a little more talent. Where are you, Yakov Smirnoff? 1 out of 10 stars
