Storyline

In 1918 the Boston Red Sox won their fifth World Series, thanks in great part to a young pitching and hitting sensation from the slums of Baltimore named George Herman Ruth, a.k.a. the Babe or the Bambino. A year later, after not advancing to the playoffs, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the Babe to the New York Yankees. In turn, the Bronx Bombers went on to win an incredible 26 World Series title. Die-hard Red Sox fans who have lived their entire lives lamenting this trade have come to refer to it as the Curse of the Bambino.

Hilarious
11 May 2005 | by vicienielloSee all my reviews

Born and raised on the Red Sox, when I wasn't enjoying the archive footage, this movie made me laugh all the way through 'till the end when I shed a few tears. Hysterical, authentic New England comments. The real Red Sox movie. A must have for a dye hard Sox fan made only as true Red Sox fans could. I have all the other World series DVDs and this is the real stuff. A must have. I don't know what else to say but I think if someone from California saw it, they might not get it. This movie is made of world class professionalism yet it isn't for anyone who didn't grow up here and KNOWS what we're talking about. The anti- Yankees stuff is real and at the same time New England humor. They should show this at Harvard.
