Really enjoyed this "New York" film ... Keaton and Downey were great ... good music... craziness all around ... Bebe Neuworth was completely over the top. Super New York City shots recreating the grit and graffiti of '86 that have pretty much disappeared. One of the best features is the background monologue by a fictitious radio announcer that is heard throughout... great language... DeLillo! Also the moments of the game interspersed with the ongoing narrative were well done. I'm not a big baseball fan and wasn't much aware of the 1986 series (even though I live in New York) but I found the game sequences fun and exciting. Saw this at a pre-screening (opening March 10 in NYC)with a Q&A afterward and was amazed at the LOW cost to make the film. The producer (who also produced After Hours )indicated that most people worked for practically nothing... It isn't a 'perfect' film but I would highly recommend it as a totally entertaining two hours.
