Storyline

A men's recreational slo-pitch baseball team are looking to capture their first league championship. After being led to the championship game the previous year and losing, Brody decides that he will have to step up as Team Captain/Manager, replacing his older brother Bret. With the help of his overly confident sidekick, Richard, Brody looks to guide a group of charismatic, quirky, and sometimes irresponsible young men to the championship they all dream of.

Exceeded all expectations!!
26 September 2012 | by wtfintofinoSee all my reviews

Okay, so I originally heard of this movie from Facebook. Things about the movie kept getting posted by friends of mine. These guys did a great job with creating quite a buzz locally for the movie. That, and a really hilarious trailer made it a must-go to event. Not only was I supporting a film made with local roots, but I was genuinely excited to see it!

I was at the opening night premiere, and got to walk the red carpet and get my picture taken. SO cool, they made it so enjoyable for everyone. . . you actually felt like you were somebody! Okay, so on to the actual movie. . .

Let me go ahead and say right off the bat, that this movie had the whole theater laughing out loud right from the start just as much as when I went to see movies like 'The Hangover'. This is saying A LOT. I found myself completely behind Richard, Evan, and Norman's characters the most. I couldn't get over how funny they were! There are easily several actors in this movie that could be huge hits in Hollywood. I was so impressed by the acting!

There were a lot of characters you're introduced to, and though it's a lot to take in, they did a great job allowing those characters to develop and sink into your brain. They made me love some characters, and hate others. . . which had me really rooting for the Sluggers throughout the movie.

I don't want to give away anything in the movie, so I can't pick out specific scenes. . . but it's SUCH a quotable movie. Me and my boyfriend have been throwing out random quotes from the movie ever since we saw it. This movie is a must see and easily has the ability to garner a cult-like following similar to what Clerks, Fubar, and Best in Show have done in the past.

As I said, it exceeded all of my expectations and I definitely recommend it! (if you're conservative, you might not enjoy as much. There's definitely some good edgy jokes!)

PLAY BALL!!!!
