Eight Men Out (1988) Rated PG

A dramatization of the Black Sox scandal when the underpaid Chicago White Sox accepted bribes to deliberately lose the 1919 World Series. Starring John Cusack, Clifton James, Michael Lerner, Christopher Lloyd, Charlie Sheen, David Strathairn, D.B. Sweeney -IMDB

This film is total baseball. It’s the film for baseball fans, not film fans. It’s not the worst baseball film but it doesn’t entertain as a film should. The script gave good banter but lacked with the answer to many questions that non baseball fans have. The acting, however, was top-notch. Everyone handled their roles magnificently, which isn’t surprising with the amount of first-rate actors in it.
