Did You Know?


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 »

a couple of random chuckles
8 August 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Comedian Max Morris (Jeff Garlin) brings his son Max to play in little league baseball. Max isn't good. Ava (Nia Vardalos) is his wife. He has imaginary conversations with his father (Timothy Olyphant). He decides to research the wacky parents who come to the games for a possible movie. Coach Jimbo (Bob Odenkirk) owns a print shop. Coach Ted (J.B. Smoove) lives next to weird neighbors Jessica (Natasha Leggero), Jackie the Chocolatier, Freddy, and Big Time Sara. Angela (Hope Dworaczyk Smith) is a hot nanny for one of the kids. Harold (Richard Kind) is married to Rosie (Jami Gertz) who is obsessed with the game snacks. Hezekiah (Steve Agee) is obsessed with the game and possibly making his own movie. Caitlin (Kerri Kenney) and Sophie (Gina Gershon) are the lesbian couple. Marty (Fred Willard) is the divorced money man who is secretly without any money.

Jeff Garlin has gathered a big cast of fun comedic talents to use in this rambling comedy. It's a lot of wacky characters in the world of little league baseball. There isn't anything tremendous but this cast is bound to get a couple of chuckles. There isn't much of a story. These aren't the Bad News Bears. The kids are mostly decorations and aren't actual characters.
