The best thing about this flick is the real people. Almost all of these actors seemed like regular folks. The accents were 100% genuine. I especially liked how everyone was very opinionated about the Yankees vs. Mets thing.
I loved how the movie gave you the feeling of what it's like to be in NYC and go from one adventure to another.
The 2 leads were fantastic; interesting, funny, and easy to relate to. They stole the movie.
The only thing wrong with the movie was it's lack of ending. Plus, the introduction of romance seemed like an attempt to show some sort of resolution. It came off as cute but a little hackneyed.
Well made, well acted, keeps you interested then... it's over and you're like, "So are they dating? Are they gonna get into Shea stadium? Was the blonde chick cool or an a jerk?" etc
This is a surprisingly charming movie. You end up rooting for the characters even though there isn't too much to the story.
