PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A rich girl whose family summers on Cape Cod has a romance with a local poor boy who hopes to become a major league baseball player.
The batter at home plate when the camera pans Veterans Field (Chatham's real home field on Cape Cod, the one with the playground) is Hyannis's Brendan Harris, who made his major league debut in 2004 with the Chicago Cubs.
She was big huh?
Billy: Yeah, she was fat and that ain't with a p-h kid!
Near the beginning of the movie, the brief shot of the light stanchion clicking on (to illuminate the field for a night game) is actually a reversal of the actual footage. This was done for effect as mercury-vapor lights (commonly used in such applications) take some 4-7 minutes to achieve full brightness after being switched on. Now, they do (almost) go completely dark when turned off (with a faint glow lasting for a short while). If you view this closely, you'll notice that the lights are glowing at first and then snap up to full bright.
DVD release features 12 minutes of deleted scenes.
