I must admit that within the first half hour, we were about to stop the DVD and watch something else. Fortunately, it was just barely interesting enough to keep us hanging in there to see some of the outcomes.
It is definitely a slow character building story. Ironically, even though two characters are baseball sports elites, there is very little action in the movie.
The character building, leading to the end is touching, and draws you in after a while.
Somehow I was expecting better acting from Jack Nicholson.
Don't expect too much, and it will be an enjoyable viewing :-)
