Great story with a comedy driven cast makes for a great indie.
2 April 2008 | by usc777See all my reviews

I have to say I really enjoyed this film. I saw it at Cinequest, it was the opening night film, and to be honest I didn't have any expectations. I personally don't like most of the typical underdog sports movies that are all over the screens these days, but this is not that kind of film.

What honestly attracted me to this film was that its improv style cast starring one of my favorite Comedy Central people ever, Tom Lennon. He doesn't disappoint. He plays a lonely washed up baseball player living in a trailer park who has some kind of mental problem because he wants to leave his wife (the hot Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and start everything over. Stephnie Weir, from MadTV, plays Barb, the drunken friend, and steals every scene she's in, which aren't enough if you ask me, but I'm biased so take that with a grain of salt.

All the other actors hold their own in their respective roles all working to try and survive life in a trailer park. I don't know enough about life in a trailer park to know if it's at all accurate, but the good thing is the film has some really great scenes showing how funny it might be.

If you like the films of Christopher Guest (which I do), then I think you'll like this film as well.
