I'm going to say that this movie is truly a great film that really holds up. Even in today's craziness that we see a lot in the world. The story is about a group of kids that love to play baseball & only one of them becomes a professional player.
Most of the story is them getting into crazy situations & them getting out of it with some great comedy in it. There are small arks in the movie that seems to fit the feel of the film just right. Like a Hot day at the pool & one of the kids kissing a lifeguard, Playing a rival team to a game of baseball, Play a game that is lighted up by fireworks at night & best ark of the movie is trying to get a ball back that is signed by Babe Ruth himself.
The biggest question is this. Does this film hold up today. The answer to me is yes it does. This is one the best film that I ever seen. Now some arks to me is just odd to see by today's standards, but I'm will to let it go for many reasons.
I do think that I can't not recommend this film. Some of the jokes & insults that are in here are still some of the best in any movie. The movie is set in the 1960's & did feel like a true story kind of movie, but it is not. So if like to watch a great family film that is a true classic film. I think that this the one for you.
Yes I know that there is a sequel to this movie, but I personal have not seen it at all. So don't roast me on that OK.
