Summary: Snipes is once again stuck in a crappy film.
Robert DeNiro stars as a psycho superfan who decides to take it upon himself to give Wesley Snipes the motivation to break out of this batting slump. Snipes plays an overpaid star baseball player who suffers a string of bad after being traded to San Francisco, which leads to a loss of confidence. The movie turns into a drama as DeNiro's character gets more and more twisted. There are no real surprises in the film as it's a very predictable plot. DeNiro and Snipes are great actors, but as usual Snipes gets stuck in a so-so film.
