Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
When the Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, it impacted the cinema in at least two ways: first, it prompted Peter and Bobby Farrelly to junk the original ending for their deep-in-production Sox-themed romantic comedy, Fever Pitch; second, it turned Still, We Believe: The Boston Red Sox Movie into a footnote. One year too early, director Paul Doyle Jr. and company seem to have taken their inspiration from nothing more than the Sox' ridiculous assemblage of talent, wanting to be the first film crew on scene when the franchise finally hoisted the trophy that had famously eluded it. The crapshoot was not wasted as the team staged improbable comebacks in two postseason series before falling short in epic fashion, a dream outcome for a documentarist. But the missed opportunity comes in the filmmakers' choice of what to do with the portion of the film they could control. The diehards they choose to follow show occasional flashes of charisma, particularly the gloom-and-doomer known as Angry Bill, but not enough to justify such a slow trudge through the baseball season that pushes the film to almost two hours. The behind-the-scenes, offsetting footage of the team does elevate the curiosity quotient. But a crucial third element might have been a Ken Burns-style history lesson to put the fans' urgency in context. That might have earned Still, We Believe consideration as the definitive Sox movie suggested by the title, and possibly a theatrical release outside the farther reaches of New England.

    Must See for a Sox Fan

    If you are a big Boston Red Sox fan then you really need to see this movie. I give it a five as a die hard fan. It really captures the love for the Red Sox and the hate for anyone associated with the Evil Empire. It is so easy to give up on a team like the Red Sox, not winning the World Series since 1918 and not winning the American League Crown since 1986, which Bill Buckner gave up. Then the ups and downs in the movie of the Red Sox 2003 season, which the world series was stolen from us. Buy it, you will not be dissapointed

    Must see for all fellow Sox fans

    Thought the movie was a true depiction of the life of a true die hard fan. I come from many generations of Red Sox fans and I wouldn't have dreamed of letting the opportunity to see this movie go by. I was lucky it was shown on the big screen in my hometown in CT.
