When it comes to film, there is no other sport that has delivered such powerful and emotional dramas on the big screen ...
This film is only the third film directed by Ben Younger. The only other movies Ben Younger directed were Boiler Room (2000) and Prime (2005).
Christ and elephants.
Late in the film, the TV in Vinnie's living room makes reference to the Red Sox "chasing the Yankees for the wild-card...". The concept of a "wild-card" wasn't introduced into MLB until 1994, over 2 years after the scene takes place. Neither Boston or New York were in contention as division leaders during the later part of the 1992 MLB season.
In the first part of the end credits, footage of the real people is shown.
