The Curse of the Bambino (2003)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Funny documentary about whether or not the Boston Red Sox's troubles are really due to a curse put on the team by Babe Ruth when the owner sold him to the New York Yankees. One interesting thing is that after the trade the Yankees would go onto win twenty-six championships while the Red Sox would just have one major collapse after another (up to the time this documentary was made). Fans of the Red Sox will probably be in tears watching this documentary but at the same time there's a level of comedy that runs throughout the thing. Various Boston writers, famous fans and regular fans are interviewed about their thoughts on various slumps that has happened over eight decades including the collapses in 1978 and the legendary on in 1986 against the Mets. People like Steven Wright, Michael Chiklis, Denis Leary, Jeffrey Lyons, Leigh Montville, Robert Creamer (Babe Ruth biographer) and Peter Casey are interviewed and share their opinions on the subject. Casey even managed to see Babe Ruth play so his comments are especially interesting. Overall this is a very entertaining documentary taking a look at the various problems that have hit the Red Sox over the years and it tries to show both sides of the coin in regards to the curse. We get "proof" that it exists but we're also given several reasons that show the problem isn't a curse but the organization itself. This includes the various race problems that haunted the team including the fact that they turned down Jackie Robinson and Willie Mayes. There's also talk about other factors that could have played into the various problems. It's certainly fun hearing from the fans and especially as they recall that 1986 World Series game six.
