| Come on, chill and enjoy the movie
This movie is FUN. I love baseball movies and this follows the formula and more. Fallen baseball idol redeems himself by coaching an underdog team of rabbinical students. Worth seeing for this scene alone-- the Ethiopian Jewish baseball player Yeshiva students do soulful Louie Armstrong imitation singing "iney ma tov". Another great scene has the goyish coach learning "kosher cuss words". Once he writes them on his arm he can shout move your "tuchas" or "don't be a putz". Some of the actors look as though they were last minutes stand ins and don't do as well as the principals. But the main characters are solid and hey its a low budget film. If the director wants to make another baseball movie, I'll stand in for free.
