Really dug this movie
4 March 2008 | by sandy-428See all my reviews

On the surface, I'm a fan of this movie because I love baseball films and the "where are they now" high school geeks all-grown-up Judd Apatow-style movies. But this one's different, because on a secondary level, director Paul Leuer did a great job of weaving a story that you really care about. I think that most of these movies can be campy and fun on the surface, but Tom Lennon's character is not too over-the-top, and he strikes just the right chord of being likable, real and somewhat flawed as a person. This drives him through the story to a very fitting conclusion.

Aside from the main plot lines, the movie contains a lot of great, campy, hilarious moments that balance the movie's main plot arc. Peter Biagi's shooting is fantastic as always, and I thought that Stephanie Weir's character was absolutely hilarious. Other supporting cast members were fantastic -- David Darlow as the team's trainer, Christian Finnegan as Tom Lennon's best friend and Kimberly Williams-Paisley is always spot on.

Bottom line: enjoyed it and will look for it on DVD.
