Let's Play Two (2017)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This here is a rather interesting documentary that tries to do two things at once. One is to show repsect to Chicago as Pearl Jam does a couple shows at Wrigley Field. The second thing is to show off the historic run that the Chicago Cubs did that season to win their first World Series since 1908.

I've heard some people say that Pearl Jam and Major League Baseball just mixed the two things in order to sell more copies but I don't buy that at all. I'd certainly believe that if the documentary was a bad one but it isn't and in fact it works perfectly well with one another. Sure, Pearl Jam played several gigs at Wrigley without the Cubs winning the World Series but in 2016 both happened at the same time and it led to this documentary.

The concert footage is great as you'd expect as are the clips from the Cubs season. To me both of those things were entertaining but the key to this film is the relation that both have to the city of Chicago. We get to hear from mega-fans of both as they discuss their love and passion for not only Pearl Jam but also the Cubs. Of course, Eddie Vedder himself was born and raised in Chicago and is a major Cubs fan so we also get to hear from him about what the city and team means.

LET'S PLAY TWO is certainly a nice tribute to the city and shows its low to the Cubs as well as Pearl Jam.
