Goofs

When Bill arrives at the ballpark for the Longueuil Senators (at approx. 37:15 right before the scene with the flags of Quebec & Canada), a blank French language scoreboard is shown with many incorrect baseball term translations.

The scoreboard shows the following incorrect terms; {real French meaning in English} (intended meaning in English) [correct French term to have been used]: MAISON {HOUSE} (HOME) [LOCAL] TOUR DE BATTE {BATTING ORDER] (INNING) [MANCHE] CLIENTS {GUESTS} (VISITORS) [VISITEURS] GRÈVE {LABOUR STRIKE} (STRIKE) [PRISE] DEHORS {OUTSIDE} (OUTS) (RETRAIT) They got BALLE right.

Not a home run
5 June 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Josh Duhamel gives an engaging and spirited performance as over the hill and down in the dumps Bill 'Spaceman' Lee, the Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos left-handed pitcher whose antics for the wild life and marijuana gave him his trippy nickname.

Bill is released by the Expos because he is bad business, despite his talent as a pitcher. Bill has earned a shoddy reputation with his wild living and now he is regarded as being too old. The word is out that no major baseball team should employ him.

Pretty soon his personal life hits the skids as his wife divorces him and the only baseball he plays is with a local senior team the Longueuil Senators where he at least enjoys some camaraderie.

The film has enough quirkiness to make it amiable, it has too much talking and by the end you think it also did not have too much plot to it.
