The Last Pitcher Show

Kevin Costner conquers the mound in For Love of the Game

Ben Glass
Rated PG-13.

What's most likely afoot here is that the player would like to learn a new game, or at least new rules. This is good, considering the creators' obvious appeal to the masses and obvious distaste for hifalutin culture. God gets product-placement alongside Adidas. Horror of horrors, Bob Seger and Steely Dan both get montage sequences (in fact, the movie is wall-to-wall music, especially boogie-woogie guitar). High-minded aesthetes get snubbed over good-ol'-boy athletes. It's all good and well to root for the home team, but in a game as manipulative as this, who really wins?
