Lame!
2 November 2005 | by cdphillies62See all my reviews

If you want, read my review but SpeechProf's review says it best. His review was right on the money.

Anyway, This is your typical New Yorkian movie where the Yankees and New Yorkians' happiness are all that matter when a tragedy occurs in the almighty city of New York and the only thing left to save their lives from the misery that was 911 are the Yankees winning it all!Pathetic! Although, I do like the ending where the D'backs beat the Yanks. :)

A little advice for you New Yorkians. Baseball is just a game. Death is death and baseball can not bring back what so many have lost that horrible day.

Honestly, I really can't think of a movie that outraged me more than this one. This tops them all and then some and made me so inspired to actually want to write a review on it.

Anyway, do yourself a favor and pass on this garbage even if you have the slightest curiosity of what it's all about. It's just not worth your time.
