Towards the end of the movie when the car "Yankee" is riding in, crests the hill approaching Chicago. A view of what is supposed to be Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Cubs) is seen in the distance. Around the top of the stadium is what appears to be lighting framework. The events of the film take place during the 1932 World Series. Lights were not installed at Wrigley Field until 1988. See more »

It's strange how people are reacting to this movie. I'm not sure what they're expecting. This is simply a fine, fun movie for the 4 to 10 year old set. I brought a group of kids with me that were in that age group and they all loved it. They were cheering at the end. As a parent I also found it quite enjoyable. It's no "Shrek" I suppose, but few movies are. This is just a fine animated film with a good plot, a good moral, and no bad language. Some reviewers are upset because some things don't make sense - like whether there could be lights on Wrigley field, or whether "Seabiscut" was around at the time this movie was supposed to take place? Please. Who cares? Certainly the kids don't. What more could you want in a fun animated flick for children? Take your kids to see it and enjoy.
