A young woman reporter blames the Pittsburgh Pirates' losing streak on the obscenely abusive manager.

The cursing in the film was handled by taking an actual recording of classic double-talk, cutting it into multiple segments of one or two syllables, rearranging them and pasting them back together. A similar trick was used 31 years later in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) when Spock speaks to Savaak in the Vulcan language. While many assume that this was a simple reversal of the audio, this is not the case. See more »
In the bottom of the 5th inning, the first Pirates batter is wearing #11. He is retired by New York and goes back to the dugout. Three more batters come to the plate, with another being retired and two scoring. That makes two out, two in, with no one on base. But the next batter that comes to the plate is again wearing #11. This is impossible, the same batter would not have been up again so soon, and two players can't have the same uniform number. See more »
I caught this movie on AMC late one Saturday night. The difference from this movie classic and the Disney effort was like night and day. This movie had more feeling and better acting. Don't Get me wrong, Danny Glover and Joseph Gordan-Levett, and Tony Danza did well, but not as good as the original cast.
