The baseball game is played as a small-scale homage to The Natural (1984), but both won and lost. See more »
In the flashback to the All-State High School Baseball Championship, the announcer states the game is in the bottom of the 9th with the visiting team up 3-2. High School baseball games have 7 innings. However, this could be incorrectly regarded as a goof as the game could have been in extra innings. This was not mentioned by the announcer. See more »
Entertaining Jim Belushi vehicle, a modern cockeyed version of It's A Wonderful Life. Michael Caine plays a sort-of angel who lets Belush see what life would have been like if he had "made it big". Jim is at his best with a good story and supporting cast; seems like real chemistry between him and Hamilton. Not an Oscar contender but good warm-hearted fun.
