    A heartfelt tribute to both the player and the man.

    When a loving son makes a documentary about his father, you can forgive him for laying it on a bit thick - especially when his love for his subject, Ron Santo, is shared by an entire city.

    Though at times sentimental, the documentary is a terrific character sketch, capturing both the rough edges and the compassion of its subject.

    In a recent "Sun-Times" article Jeff said he purposely avoided taking a son's perspective, which leaves him without much perspective at all.

    More a slavish tribute than objective portrait. As a result, competent but innocuous Feature begins to overstay welcome at the 60-minute mark.
  6. Won't be of much value to anyone besides die-hard Cubs fans or the Santo family itself.
