Another Red Sox movie
Yet another movie involving the Red Sox as the main plot is headed to theatres. Game 6 is opens on March 10th and your Uncle Buck can't imagine one Red Sox fan (or anyone else for that matter) who would stand in line to see it.
As UB saw in the trailer, Michael Keaton plays a Red Sox fan/playwright who skips the opening night of his play in New York to watch Game 6 of the 1986 World Series at a bar. There are some sub plots about him getting a divorce with his wife and an affair with some woman...
"For the last time, you are NOT Batman!"
The film also features Bebe Neuwirth, fresh off her roll in Cheers...If it wasn't for that outfit, you'd lose her in the sheets...
The Director (standing next to Dr. Moreau) is a Mets fan...Big F-ing surprise.
Robert Downey Jr. also stars, apparently playing Beethoven...The film marks another attempt at a comeback by Downey Jr. after that stint in jail...
Downey Jr. received several years following that "Anti-Pep Rally" stunt:
"Violent ground acquisition games such as football is in fact a crypto-fascist metaphor for nuclear war. "
"No...I really am Batman!"
"...Gets through Buckner! Here comes Knight at the Mets win it!!" BANG
