Storyline

Beer, broads and baseball: a group of misfits whose weekly softball games seem to have a lot more to do with getting into fights for macho dominance than hitting home runs. Artie is an unemployed and unmotivated drunk that is predictably still living with his mother. He is on a losing softball team, and he and his teammates are facing the end of softball as they know it if they can't pull it together. When love enters his life, it unexpectedly alters Artie's low self-esteem, and the odds for winning, not only the league trophy, but a new life, are certainly looking up. He and his teammates will have to go for the win. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Goofs

In the diner scene where Artie's girlfriend Linda throws French fries at him, if you look at the window sill above Artie's shoulder to the left you can see a lone French fry that appears and disappears BEFORE she actually throws them at Artie. This scene is obviously compiled from multiple takes and somebody missed a French fry when they were cleaning up from the previous take. See more »

Quotes

Linda Salvo: Be honest with me, Artie. The only reason you like me is because I fuck you.
Artie DeVanzo: Not at all... I mean it's awesome.

Exactly as promised! Lots of laughs...
15 September 2006 | by midnitetoySee all my reviews

How can anyone complain about this movie?? It's extremely funny at times and exactly what was promised, a small budget comedy with lots of raunchy humor. Just like everything else Stern related I think people feel the need to be critical even when it isn't warranted. Go see the movie. If you're a fan of the Stern show and a fan of Artie you won't be disappointed. I was surprised to see how much of the movie came directly from Artie's real life experiences. Any true fan will spot them right away (including the Mattingly poster!). This may not be the movie you want to take a first date to go see but it's good for a fun night out with the guys. I just hope everyone that leaves a comment actually saw the movie and aren't just making up comments to push an agenda.
