Joey (Justin Isfeld) is an ace 13-year-old pitcher with dreams of the big leagues, fed by pals Book (Max Goldblatt), who hopes to be his catcher, and Mouth (Chauncey Leopardi), who plans to be his agent. It’s a relatively idyllic existence, but real problems soon surface. Joey has to deal with an abusive brother (Mark Paul Gosselaar) and two well-meaning but largely absent parents (Kirstie Alley, Matt McCoy). Book and Mouth’s parents are absent in different ways, particularly Book’s father (Gary Busey), who thinks he can solve his son’s problems by strength of will. The problem the friends share is that they have caught the eye of the school bully, Hayes (Jordan Brower). In increasingly savage acts, he makes life a living hell for them. In one instance he grabs Book from the school shower, throws him out in the hallway and pulls the fire alarm.
A superb story of school bullying that shows the true emotions that children go through
by dexshirts. I caught the film on TV by accident and couldn’t pull myself away. I ended up watching it to the end which finished around 3am. I was suprized by the amount of gritty violence and language it included but at the same time became engrossed in 3 young boy’s lives. It was both a feel good and think about film. At times I found myself wanting to hold a gun to Hayes’ head but later on wanted to comfort him. An excellent film without a doubt, one that makes you think about life… Written by dexshirts
