    Classic acting performances married to an errily accurate historial recounting of the most infamous event in American sports history. Combined everything but sex a film can offer. I definitely felt a pathos for the players even though thier actions were wrong. Charlie acted as life is stranger then fiction by his portral as the loud mouthed scatter brain centerfielder.
