Comedy? Drama? Who knows -- but worth a watch

'The Scout' is a rather odd, yet not unappealing movie about a baseball scout named Al Percolo (played by Albert "Einstein" Brooks) and his relationship with "the greatest baseball player in the world" (Brendan Fraser) -- an awkward fellow with the not-very-handsome name of Steve Nebraska (and a not-very-handsome mullet to match).After Al's latest would-be star player (Michael Rapaport) suffers a ... read more

There, Al encounters Steve Nebraska -- who might act like he has an IQ of about 6, but he sure can play baseball! 

Al tries to find out more about Steve's past, but Steve "doesn't like to be asked questions." Nevertheless, Al guarantees St” read more
