Quotes

Chuck Ireland: Year ago in the old Forbes Field... Ya ever seen a game in Forbes Field? The Pirates were playing the Cardinals and there's this foul ball that goes into the stands along the Right Field line. Clemente, he can't quite reach it.

lazy hazy nostalgia
12 June 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's Roberto Clemente day. An adult Mickey (Ray Liotta) recounts to his kids his childhood days with Clemente as his and his friends' hero. His father had abandoned the family. His brother Roger (Rory Culkin) is deteriorating from muscular dystrophy. He's bitter that his mother (Lauren Holly) moved them to California. With Clemente's 3000th hit approaching, Mickey takes off with Roger back to Pittsburg to see the feat. Their mother calls the cops. Along the way, the boys meet Kelly (Tania Raymonde) riding the rails.

This relies on nostalgia. There is a bit of good coming-of-age but somewhat slow. Lead kid Trevor Morgan doesn't have the greatest charisma. It tries to have a little fun. There is a lazy feel to the whole endeavor. There is also a lack of tension. The motivation is off. Mickey should be doing the trip for his sick brother instead of the other way around. That way, the drive would be intensified. The movie seems unwilling or unable to push over the top.
