Beer, broads and baseball: a group of misfits whose weekly softball games seem to have a lot more to do with getting into fights for macho dominance than hitting home runs. Artie is an unemployed and unmotivated drunk that is predictably still living with his mother. He is on a losing softball team, and he and his teammates are facing the end of softball as they know it if they can't pull it together. When love enters his life, it unexpectedly alters Artie's low self-esteem, and the odds for winning, not only the league trophy, but a new life, are certainly looking up. He and his teammates will have to go for the win. Written by

At one point in the film, Artie is calling girls from his high-school days, making references to Union High School in New Jersey, where he attended school. See more »
In the diner scene where Artie's girlfriend Linda throws French fries at him, if you look at the window sill above Artie's shoulder to the left you can see a lone French fry that appears and disappears BEFORE she actually throws them at Artie. This scene is obviously compiled from multiple takes and somebody missed a French fry when they were cleaning up from the previous take. See more »

Now coming to bat is Artie DeVanzo. Last season was a fine one for DeVanzo, we all know that. He batted 420 with 45 RBIs. He enters today's game with a Blood Alcohol Content of .16. If you kids scoring at home, that is an impressive *twice* the legal limit.

I have to admit, I was shocked that this movie was so funny. My wife and I both saw it this afternoon, While I did appreciate the movie more than her, she did laugh pretty hard at some scenes. Don't take the kids, but get a sitter and go see this movie!
While this was an afternoon showing on a Saturday, we will still shocked that we actually did have to "look" for a seat rather than just walk in and take any we wanted.
There were times in this movie that people were laughing so hard that we could not hear what was being said next. I don't think this has happened during a movie I have seen since American Pie.
