This film is so wonderfully quirky, it could be British. In fact, I was sure it was the work of a British filmmaker until I saw it was written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson, who then went on to make Field of Dreams and Sneakers.
It's nothing at all like those bigger, more "Hollywood" style movies. This is charming, low-key, and, well, goofy. It's played for oddness and smiles instead of big laughs. It's also smart and completely won us over. And it's a true story.
Definitely one of my very favorite sleepers.
