PG-13 | | Drama, Sport
A daughter tries to remedy her dysfunctional relationship with her ailing father, a decorated baseball scout by helping him in a recruiting trip which could be his last.
During this movie, Phillip Sanderson (Matthew Lillard) refers to the scouted prospect; Bo Gentry (Joe Massingill), as having "all five tools". The five tools in baseball refer to a players' ability to hit the ball for average, and for power, be talented defensively, have a good throwing arm, and have a considerable amount of speed. Judging on the few scenes where Bo runs, he's not exceptionally fast, and based on his large round stocky build, it is highly unlikely that he is very fast. Perhaps the writers inserted this quote in order to display Lillard's character of having ignorance to baseball and only basing his facts off of a computer without watching him play, especially considering this is actually a very large part of the plot.
Okay, come on now. Come on, boy. Let's not take your sweet-ass time about this. Jesus. Okay, that's it... Ah, good. Don't laugh, I outlived you, you little bastard.
At Ted Turner Field, before Rigo Sanchez pitches to Bo Gentry, a bunch of advertisements are seen, including one for a lottery. The amount up for grabs is $540 million. Then when Mickey goes to talk to Rigo, the same sign is seen behind him, and it now says $500 million.
