Decent watch, probably won't watch again, and can recommend. I'm not a fan of baseball on any level, but this is a surprisingly charming movie, and Billy Bob Thorton is great with inappropriate humor. After this watch, I'm thinking this is from where "Benchwarmers" might have been inspired. I think it's more of the "misfits working together" trope that gets me, and you see it in lots of kids sports movies: "Kicking & Screaming", "The Sandlot", "Little Giants", "Mighty Ducks". This rolls in a lot of adult humor as well, so while you might have to have a few talks with your kids (which you should have had before watching a movie that would unexpectedly prompt them), but I think it's a movie that the whole family could actually watch. It's not great, but it was fun.
Good movie. Billy Bob Thornton doing what he does best being an a-hole. More coaches need to be like this guy lol.

The man simulates different forms of attack and stands gamely every time - except the last.
