Watched “Blackball” on DVD. This is one of those average movies where you know everything before you’ve even seen it, but you still watch it because you have nothing better to do.
The story is something I’ve seen many times in other movies. Nobody becomes famous and he is so overwhelmed with it that all his relationships with friends, relatives, and women go down the hill. He than is pushed to realize that he is nothing without them, so he understands it, changes his attitudes back and everything happy ends.
The familliarity of cast was very mixed. Some actors are very well known, like James Cromwell and Alice Evans, others were not.
I’ll give this film a 6 out of 10, which is leaping into 5.5 out of 10. Get something else if you have a choice.
