Baseball fans will hate The Scout because it makes a mockery of the game. Not quite as badly as Ed, which stars a monkey as the star pitcher, but close. Non-baseball fans will hate it because it's not funny.
The Scout was directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Mr. Brooks and Monica Johnson from a script written by Andrew Bergman years ago. It's probably not all that valuable to wonder how so many talented people went so wrong.
