Reviews
Mine: A fun comedy. Walter is great as always.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Bright comedy about hopeless Little League baseball team that scores with an unlikely combination: a beer-guzzling coach (Matthau) and a female star pitcher (O'Neal). Some of film's major appeal--young kids spouting four-letter words--may be lost on TV. Clever use of Bizet's music from Carmen. Followed by two sequels and a TV series.
