On the Big Board
|Cliched and unfunny, though Milo Ventimiglia makes a valiant effort.
If you're a baseball player and wondering what to do with your free time, you might form a production company to create a ribald comedy aimed at teens. In fact, that's exactly what Todd Zeile, Mike Piazza, Al Leiter, Tom Glavine, Cliff Floyd, and Jeremy and Jason Giambi have done as they joined forces with their new company Green Diamond Entertainment to develop a movie in the vein of American Pie.
The movie centers on a high school senior who is attempted to become the first student to ever complete the "Dirty Deeds", a crazy set of challenges that have to be completed between dusk and dawn on the Friday of Homecoming weekend. Zeile is an executive producer on the film, and also has a cameo role.
As for the cast, it's pretty impressive for a new movie from an upstart company. Milo Ventmiglia, best known as the angst-y Jess on Gilmore Girls, has the lead, with supporting actors that include Mean Girl Lacey Chabert, Charles Durning and Zoe Saldana. Look for the movie to be the subject of much fascination as it sees release right in the midst of baseball playoff season. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
