Silly. Nothing significant happens. The same music throughout, and while it isn’t bad, it gets annoying. Reminded me a lot of Get Shorty. Same hustler character, same kind of whimsical direction. The main character could have been really cool if they got a star actor in the role and gave it an edge or a little flavor. The scene where Brady Anderson catches the ball and looks at the stadium in awe is just ridiculous.

I like movies that have a bit extra at the end. Sometimes it can be really neat, like you’re getting more for your money. But here it was just stupid.
