Plot Summary
Artie (Artie Lange) has no job and no girlfriend, and still lives with his mother. But he does have two things to look forward to in life: beer and softball. With best buddy Maz (Ralph Macchio), Artie plays on a team for Ed's Bar and Swill -- until their brawling behavior threatens to get them kicked out of the league. In order to maintain their place, they'll have to defeat the champions at Manganelli Fitness -- no easy task when their blood-alcohol levels exceed their batting averages.

Ratings & Reviews

  • The sort of lowbrow sports comedy best enjoyed on a 50-inch screen with a six-pack, a bucket of wings and a fast-forward button. show more

  • Yet another ode to the pleasures of overindulgence. The experience of watching this loosely plotted comedy set in the suburbs of New Jersey is somewhat akin to spending a nice summer day playing softball with your friends. Only without the sun, the fresh air, the exercise or the fun. show more

  • Buono is truly charming, and the film delivers a handful of genuine laughs -- low laughs, but laughs nonetheless; if only they weren't so few and far between. show more
