Congratulations
22 February 2005 | by alki-5See all my reviews

I saw the film at the festival too.

And I have to strongly disagree.

I was moved and compelled to watch Combining real and fictional events, Game 6 centers around the historic 1986 World Series and a day in the life of a playwright who skips opening night to watch the momentous game.

Keaton and Downey were brilliant.

Always great watching these two fantastic artists.

I give it my two thumbs up.

The reason you probably found it boring is because you were asleep.
