Good Movie for people, who grew up in the 90's or who enjoy Baseball fandom. As a Red Sox fan, I can relate to the cub fans on the site with reviews of hope and desire for a better team and hopefully a golden pitcher to make things come true. When I was a kid, I saw this movie and it felt kind of fun and got me interested in watching a few baseball games. It wasn't until my senior year in High School (2004 season) that the Red Sox won our ultimate comeback (the greatest comeback of any sports series) from 0-3 to beat our most hated enemies the Yankees (everyone hates the Yankees even Yankee fans :P ) and finally win the Championships. We've won again since then, but the first time after almost a hundred years was well worth it.
Was it Cheesy? Yes, but it's not a bad movie due to the cliches. I think if I were watching it in my adult mindset, I'd be laughing at the plot's absurdities, but as a kid I knew it was fun and whimsical. That's what people need to watch this movie with, not a critical eye, but a fun and whimsical mindset.
Don't lose hope guys, maybe next season the Cubs will have a great team.
