Goofs

During the sports report where they mention Clemente's hit being taken away by an error, the scoreboard shows the 1 in the hits column change to a 0 and the 0 in the errors column change to a 1. Since the Pirates were the home team, it should have been the bottom row listing the Pirates' hits total, not the top. And the error is then awarded to the opposing team, which in this case is the top row. See more »

Quotes

Chuck Ireland: Year ago in the old Forbes Field... Ya ever seen a game in Forbes Field? The Pirates were playing the Cardinals and there's this foul ball that goes into the stands along the Right Field line. Clemente, he can't quite reach it. This man, he caught it and he felt all good and fuzzy and happy y'know and then this really big burly guy next to him, reaches over and wrestles it away from him.

lazy hazy nostalgia
12 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's Roberto Clemente day. An adult Mickey (Ray Liotta) recounts to his kids his childhood days with Clemente as his and his friends' hero. His father had abandoned the family. His brother Roger (Rory Culkin) is deteriorating from muscular dystrophy. He's bitter that his mother (Lauren Holly) moved them to California. With Clemente's 3000th hit approaching, Mickey takes off with Roger back to Pittsburg to see the feat. Their mother calls the cops. Along the way, the boys meet Kelly (Tania Raymonde) riding the rails.

This relies on nostalgia. There is a bit of good coming-of-age but somewhat slow. Lead kid Trevor Morgan doesn't have the greatest charisma. It tries to have a little fun. There is a lazy feel to the whole endeavor. There is also a lack of tension. The motivation is off. Mickey should be doing the trip for his sick brother instead of the other way around. That way, the drive would be intensified. The movie seems unwilling or unable to push over the top.
