A well done little comedy.
21 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a class taught by one of the film's producers, and so I was able to view this film with about twenty-five or so of my classmates in a small and quite room. I will say that for that environment, this movie is perfect. I probably wouldn't want to see it in a large theater, nor do I think the film was made with that arena in mind. This is a small, quaint, completely charming little coming-of-age story about a group of middle-aged Chicagoans who don't ever want to grow up. Larry Joe Campbell and Keegan Michael Key absolutely steal the show, and truthfully if it weren't for the both of them, I'm not so sure how well this movie would play. All in all I'd say it's worth a shot. It's not artsy-fartsy, it's not Old School, but it does very well for a low budget guy comedy about growing up, having a core group of great friends, and of course, whiffle ball.
