Cast overview, first billed only:
Michael Deeg ...


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 Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Very funny movie...
16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
