CHASING 3000 (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Chasing 3000 features good, believable casting choices with the team of Ray Liotta, Trevor Morgan, and Rory Culkin. While a bit superficial in that the movie does not plumb depth of character, the storyline is solid and the scripting well-timed. It’s worth a watch for families who share a common interest in sports.

Storyline

Two young brothers, avid Pittsburgh Pirates fans, make a return to Pittsburgh from California to see Roberto Clemente hit his 3000th base hit.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a light watch for sport fans that also makes a good, clean family share. The movie focuses on two underage brothers who independently travel cross country to their native state, their misadventures along the way, and their dogged love of baseball that drives their ambitious journey.
