Baseball lifers will get -- and probably already have gotten -- a kick out of the many specific truisms littered throughout this light, yet refreshingly sardonic romp through minor league baseball.

As a fan of the sport myself, I found it to be an ultimately rewarding experience. As a fan of filmmaking, however, I found it to be slightly less so. The dialogue is supremely sharp and the authenticity behind the story is evident, but I just couldn't nail down these characters' motivations, attitudes, and traits. I suppose that helps in that I couldn't necessarily tell what was going to happen next. But I also ended feeling as though I didn't really ever know any of these people. And my emotional investment in them took a subsequent hit as well. An enjoyable movie overall, but a fleeting experience as well, I fear. Expand
