Based on a true story, Chasing 3000 is directed by Gregory J. Lanesey and features Ray Liotta. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A brotherly love tale substantially weightier than its baseball road-trip premise might indicate.

This sincere, nostalgic, brothers-on-the-road movie has its strong points but sadly fails to do what Clemente so famously did in his final at-bat - finish on a high note.

It's a tapestry of cinematic clichés in the service of fictionalized memoir, pushed just past serviceability by some great old footage of Clemente and affecting performances by Morgan, Culkin and Holly.

Chasing 3000 is a nostalgia-fueled bore that uses baseball history as a backdrop for a formulaic road trip movie.

Audience Reviews for Chasing 3000

Cast: Trevor Morgan, Rory Culkin, Ray Liotta, Lauren Holly, Tania Raymonde, M. Emmet Walsh, Seymour Cassel, Ricardo Chavira, Michael O'Keefe, Lori Petty, Willa Holland, Keith David

Director: Gregory J. Lanesey

Summary: Determined to see Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder Roberto Clemente get his 3,000th hit, recently uprooted Pennsylvania brothers Mickey (Trevor Morgan) and Roger (Rory Culkin) make an unauthorized cross-country trek from Los Angeles to Three Rivers Stadium. The fact that Roger has muscular dystrophy is daunting ... but it's hardly a deterrent.

My Thoughts: "The film itself is touching, seeing two brothers who care for each other so much. Roger has a disease that is suppose to take his life before graduation, but he's such a fighter. Mickey is the older brother who is feeling very much alone and invisible by his mother. When they have to move to L.A. for Roger so he can get better medical help, Mickey becomes very angry that his voice isn't being heard, for he doesn't want to move away from his home town, or his favorite Baseball team. Roger, seeing this change in Mickey, longs to reconnect with his brother again and hopes tagging along on his brothers road-trip will bring back the relationship they had before they moved. But after realizing Roger has forgotten his medicine many miles too late puts their trip and Roger's life in jeopardy. I always love a good road-trip flick, and it was a bonus that is was based on a true story."
