You stay classy, Pete!
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
It is a stupid movie, but it does show you just where Pete Rose grew up. Funny, HBO has shown it over and over again for the last couple of months.
The shots in it from inside good ole West Hi are fraught with memories.....Just glad they didn't include scenes from any Elder - West Hi football games.....ouch!
"Is there a problem officers?"
Renaming "Pete Rose Way" would get my support. How about "Sparky Anderson Avenue" or "Johnny Bench Boulevard" or "Tony Perez Parkway"?
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
What he did was inappropriate in front of children; but Pete has always been this way. It's called "environment". He's a clone of his Dad, and his Mom was pretty much a "free spirit" who wasn't afraid to tell it like it is.
"In my day you had musicians who experimented with drugs. Now it's druggies experimenting with music" - Alfred G Clark (circa 1972)
A caller earlier said she and her son was there and this story is really making something out of nothing.
She said it wasn't that big of a deal.
Who knows? I've heard both sides...
Nah.. it's a Disney Kids movie, not stupid...just cheap.. like most live action Disney films (North Avenue Irregulars anyone?) my friend said it was low budget, and that plus getting to film in his home town was the reason he took it... but he said it was not his usual big ticket Hollywood paycheck.It is a stupid movie, but it does show you just where Pete Rose grew up.

"Pete (Rose) doesn't run with celebrities and he can't stand the phonies. His big buddy in LA ain't Sinatra, it's a funny old groundskeeper."
He's just Pete. Too bad he has no internal censor.
