Matt Harvey was on Andy Cohen’s gabfest this evening, apparently. I’m not going to discuss it because:
a) I don’t want to talk about Matt Harvey,
2) I don’t want to think about Matt Harvey, and
.) from what I’m seeing on Twitter and tumblr, we don’t need to talk about Matt Harvey’s interview.
Anyway, I just got home not too long ago from a much needed evening of laughter. I watched Rifftrax skewer the best worst movie ever made, “The Room.”
The movie featured inexplicable scenes of people in tuxedos playing lousy games of catch with a football, and it made me think, “What movies have featured baseball that aren’t actually baseball movies?”
Of course, my immediate thought is “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. The scene where Ferris and Cameron are at the Cubs game is classic, but Ferris also utilizes a baseball and glove to perpetuate his day off scam.
Is there nothing baseball can’t do? I guess not. (Except maybe give us more Alan Ruck? Cameron for life, yo.)
There’s also a baseball scene in the ridiculous cinematic pile of poo that is “Twilight”.
I’m sad that such a great song like “Supermassive Black Hole” is used in such a terrible movie.
I know there are others, but what do you guys think are noteworthy baseball scenes in non-baseball films? Share in the comments below. Or be like Lefty and myself and troll the crap out of bad movies. I won’t mind.
