An honestly enjoyable film...
This was one of those Netflix discoveries made late at night. I gave it a chance, mainly because of the stellar cast (Jeff Garlin? Fred Willard? LOVE!!!) I was beyond pleasantly surprised. I'm not a fan of writing spoilers (but I love to read them....weird, huh?!), so I'll be vague and mysterious and just say that it was such an odd, hilarious movie, but with a sprinkle of positivity that just endears you to it all the more. (Don't let this confuse you, I'm a fan of bawdy, outrageous comedy and this is chock-full of it!) You don't have to love sports or have kids to laugh your @$$ off. I love this movie, and I can honestly say I'd rewatch this again and again (which I rarely say about a movie.)
P.S. Steve Agee's character was amazing. Just...yeah. I really didn't know the man existed prior to this film, and I can't wait to see some of his other work. Also, Jami Gertz' character is the (hilariously) living embodiment of why I'm glad my kids don't care about sports.
