This is the best baseball movie.
I had fond memories of watching this movie as a kid (10 or 11). I was hoping to once again to get sucked into the engrossing story of semi-semi pro baseball player Ryan Dunn. Yes you read that correctly... Much to my delight I was able to recapture some of the magic. Admittedly I had to farm for some enjoyment amidst a barren landscape of wooden performances. Freddie Printz juniors performance is laughable for all the wrong reasons. It seems like he has a hard time conveying more then one emotion per 30 seconds. Much like the terrible editing his acting seems choppy and out of place at times. He never fully commits to the accent he starts the movie with. It pops back up from time to time like a good call back. If that doesn't keep you entertained it's packed with cliches and cameos from 90's greats such as Mathew Lillard and Britney Murphy. The plot is so thin it'll keep you guessing... exactly what is going to happen. If you're looking for a good laugh I highly recommend checking this out against.
7/15/2017 (3): I like this movie and don't quite understand the poor ratings. A really good cast (Hello Jessica Biel!!) and a fun entertaining story.
A strike out looking. A relic of a time when cliched rom-coms were at there most superficial and listless.
actually pretty funny. entertaining story. Lillard was hilarious as Brubaker,
What a time to be alive? The late 90s when everyone just felt safer, cellphones where no where to be seen, and the internet wasnt really taken off yet. Collage allstar story that featured at the time Freddie Prince, all the young girls wanted their panties on his floor and Jessica beil who high school boys like to watch get out pool in slow mo because porno was wack at that time and scarce. Young freddie gets rode hard by his dad in a bad way and brittany murphy in a good way. To quote his catcher (also his goofy side kick on scooby doo) You try to mow her lawn and now you want to her mow her lawn". Lawn boy is inspired to play ball by jessica's tush and to chase his dreams. His big brother and childhood friends who always attend his games give him much need great speechs whens it crunch time to help deliver curve balls that although fredie is left handed will break as if he is right handed :) Fun to root against his flame throwing blonde dyded curled punk as he reeks of d-bag odor. Enjoy this baseball classic kids
Cape Cod baseball player and yard boy falls in love with local rich girl in a teen ripoff of "Bull Durham ".
Ok plot but the chemistry between FPJ and Jessica Biel made me smile after the movie was over.
Lawn boy baseball player meets rich girl and they fall in love in this Bull Durham ripoff for teens.
It strives to aim for cute but drift mostly towards cliche.
