Storyline

A documentary look at the 2003 season of the Boston Red Sox and the pull the team has on its fan base as seen through the eyes and heard through the words of over half a dozen fans. The 2003 season is seen through the rooting interest of fans as well as from the working environment of the team's players, manager Grady Little, its team owners in businessmen John W. Henry and Larry Luccino and movie producer Tom Werner, and the team's youthful general manager Theo Epstein, who was bringing in a new and controversial philosophy toward running the team that was often revolved around statistical analysis of players, often seen as at the expense of eyewitness analysis and based in part on a much-discussed book, "Moneyball," that advocated managerial use of previously obscure statistics such as On-Base Percentage as opposed to more traditional stats. The pull of the Red Sox on its fans is often remarkable as seen through their devotion to the team, a devotion that sometimes seems irrational ... Written by Michael Daly

Funny and heartbreaking.
10 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this documentary in the theater, the wounds of '03 were still fresh. I didn't really want to relive it all. I also, wasn't sure what to expect. I completely disagree with that last reviewer who said he was disappointed. I was delighted. I think rabid fans of any team (except maybe Yankee fans who can't get past the Red Sox being the highlight of the feature, which would work vice versa if the subject were the Yankees) will appreciate this film.

It showcases several fans and their annual ritual of subjecting themselves to the pain and torture that was being a Sox fan. Watching the fans go through the season was like reliving it all over again. I felt their joy during exciting games, anxiety when the Yankees would make a come back. The hope that leaped up into my heart when it looked like '03 was the year, only to be horrifically smashed into a thousand pieces in the last game of the playoffs. The girls having to switch jersey's mid game to change their luck and the hand wringing and frustration of watching the red sox blow yet another game, are things we can all relate to. If you have passion for any sport or team, you can and will relate to these fans. (And hey, if you're a Yankee fan you can reminisce about the good old days, before your humiliating loss in '04)
