Based on the book by acclaimed author John Grisham, "Playing for Pizza" is the story of an itinerant American football player cast out of the National Football League, only to land a job playing for the Parma Panthers, in Parma, Italy.
A lawyer from New Orleans steals $90 million dollars from his law firm after he fakes his own death. What was thought to be a flawless plan, leads him into a bigger web of problems, where he is tortured and charged with capital murder.
A widowed lawyer wanted by the IRS assumes a new identity and signs his now-too-old son up for one more year of Little League. However, this may have been a mistake, as his son's dominance captures the media's attention as his team careens toward the Little League World Series.Written by
Shawn Salinas went with the crew to Las Vegas where they shot 18 hours of Second Unit shots, but Harry Connick Jr. did not go. Thus, in the scene where Glen and Mickey arrive in Las Vegas by bus, the shots that include Glen were taken in Virginia while the rest of the scene was shot in Las Vegas. See more »
In the last game Mickey gives up a home run to Bulsa in the first inning, and he's the third hitter of the lineup. Then Mickey doesn't give up another hit and faces Bulsa for the last out of the game. This is impossible because if this happened the last batter of the game would be the first hitter. The order would go:
1st inning: 1 2 3 4 hitters.
2nd inning: 5 6 7 hitters.
3rd inning: 8 9 1 hitters.
4th inning: 2 3 4 hitters.
5th inning: 5 6 7 hitters.
6th inning: 8 9 1 hitters. See more »
So... tell me about your boy.
How'd you know?
About every week I get a call from a guy like you, a serious baseball dad. Looks me up, and he wants his kid to be a Moose.
Yeah, well, he's a great player.
Gee, I never heard that before.

The original theatric release was 90 minutes long. The 2005 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Anchor Bay is 104:15 to the end of the credits. The 2007 DVD anamorphic wide screen version from Feature Films For Families is 103:52 to the end of the credits - it is essentially the 2005 DVD version with a 00:29 Feature Films For Families logo clip added at the beginning, and 00:52 of the feature edited out for morality reasons. Cut from the coaches' bed check scene at 44:24 is the coaches talking about not having blocked X-rated channels from the boys' room and Griff's hastily switching channels to an ESPN news story on the Cuban team when the coaches knock on the door; the remixed scene looks as if the boys are watching the news story all along while the coaches want them to be concentrating on the upcoming Regional game against Reno Central (although their eyes are unusually wide for watching a news story). In the scene where IRS agent Seeger interrogates Mr. Prater about the false identification papers he supplied Tripp Spence (46:35), the bit about Mr. Prater's girl friend driving a BMW that is a lot better than his wife's is cut. In coach Bracey's bottom of the sixth pep talk in the championship game with the Cubans, his "Kick their butts" exhortation is cut. See more »
"Mickey" a very strong feel good heartwarming movie that got away. This movie is currently in limited release. It is about a father who just wishes his son could make it to "The Little League World Series." There is just one problem, The IRS is looking for the father who is suffering in debt, and Mickey is to old to play in Little League. Solution move away, and change your identity.The movie starts out a little too fast, and things are thrown together really fast, but be patient it's worth your time. This movie is currently in the middle Tennesse area. If it's not in theaters in your area rent this movie in your spare time. My take on the movies a very strong 8/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
