In this second episode of 50 under 50, Charlie Salek and Henry Duncan discuss the family comedy, Kicking and Screaming, starring Will Ferrell and Robert Duvall. Charlie and Henry will prove to you why this movie deserves better than its 41% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Charlie and Henry could not get over the 33% Tomatometer rating for a childhood classic, Angels in the Outfield (1994). This movie has a star-studded cast, lead by Danny Glover and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. For both Charlie and Henry, the movie brought back childhood memories. This movie had a great effect on aspiring baseball players in the 1990s and early 2000s, but most importantly, for those who believe in miracles. Charlie and Henry seeing this movie as better than its rating is not delusional, just as Roger (Gordon-Levitt) is not merely making up seeing angels. Some things are just unexplainable like angels helping a cratering ballclub win the pennant. Charlie and Henry will show you that their support for this movie is not just some fabricated miracle.
