When Bill is pitching his first game with Longeuil, there is a shot of the catcher wearing hockey goalie equipment: pads and old face mask. When pitcher goes to the mound to talk with Bill, he's holding a modern baseball catcher's mask under his arm. When catcher goes back behind plate, he is again wearing hockey mask. See more »

Good movie; definitely dropped the ball on many details
24 August 2016 | by misterCaronSee all my reviews

The movie itself is good, if you like baseball and know Bill Lee just a little, you'll like it.

I found many problems with several scenes however which kind of drew my attention away from the story. For example, the "French" people they hired either don't speak French, which is fine for an American movie, or worse, a lot of them have French from France accent, which makes no sense at all. There are plenty of Quebecois in Hollywood who would have been happy to play the part.

Next, the beer bottles go between generations during the same years... a bit strange, but no big deal.

And those ugly Ericofons, did Bill's family really love them that much?! They probably had the Model 500 or 2500 like most people, or a fancy Princess for the ex-wife...

And then Bill drives from Montreal to Phoenix, then back to Montreal in just a few days? No wonder we call him Spaceman.

Like I said, it's just distracting. Except the end scene with the customs officers dressed like RCMP mounties dressed up for a parade... I know this is a low budget film but fixing these things to make it a little more historically accurate would have been simple and pretty much the same price.
