Storyline

A documentary look at the 2003 season of the Boston Red Sox and the pull the team has on its fan base as seen through the eyes and heard through the words of over half a dozen fans. The 2003 season is seen through the rooting interest of fans as well as from the working environment of the team's players, manager Grady Little, its team owners in businessmen John W. Henry and Larry Luccino and movie producer Tom Werner, and the team's youthful general manager Theo Epstein, who was bringing in a new and controversial philosophy toward running the team that was often revolved around statistical analysis of players, often seen as at the expense of eyewitness analysis and based in part on a much-discussed book, "Moneyball," that advocated managerial use of previously obscure statistics such as On-Base Percentage as opposed to more traditional stats. The pull of the Red Sox on its fans is often remarkable as seen through their devotion to the team, a devotion that sometimes seems irrational ... Written by Michael Daly

This movie is great!
8 May 2004 | by MikeSilversteinSee all my reviews

Wow. This movie is very enjoyable. I'm not sure that it will have universal appeal, but if you are a Red Sox fan, Boston native, or fan of sports in general, you should like this movie. The filmmaking was not the greatest and seemed amateurish at times, but overall the film really captured the flavor of Boston and what it is like to be a fan of a team that continually breaks your heart. I enjoyed the various characters that we met throughout the film (though some of them seemed like not the brightest bulbs on the tree, I don't think they gave the city of Boston a bad name like the other reviewer suggests), and struggled with them as they raised their hopes for the 2003 Red Sox, only to see the team inevitably fail (which, as a Sox fan, was hard to watch again). Anyone planning on moving to Boston should watch this film to get a sense of this cursed town with its proud, pained fans.
