Trivia

The imaginary conversations with Max (Jeff Garlin) and a young version of his dad (Timothy Olyphant) were inspired by Garlin's own father, who passed away shortly before the film was made. Garlin said he wanted to imagine what it would be like to talk to his dad about how kids' sports were in the past. See more »

An honestly enjoyable film...
26 February 2014 | by dbnsjsmomSee all my reviews

This was one of those Netflix discoveries made late at night. I gave it a chance, mainly because of the stellar cast (Jeff Garlin? Fred Willard? LOVE!!!) I was beyond pleasantly surprised. I'm not a fan of writing spoilers (but I love to read them....weird, huh?!), so I'll be vague and mysterious and just say that it was such an odd, hilarious movie, but with a sprinkle of positivity that just endears you to it all the more. (Don't let this confuse you, I'm a fan of bawdy, outrageous comedy and this is chock-full of it!) You don't have to love sports or have kids to laugh your @$$ off. I love this movie, and I can honestly say I'd rewatch this again and again (which I rarely say about a movie.)

P.S. Steve Agee's character was amazing. Just...yeah. I really didn't know the man existed prior to this film, and I can't wait to see some of his other work. Also, Jami Gertz' character is the (hilariously) living embodiment of why I'm glad my kids don't care about sports.
