Everyone has that one buddy who loves his team a little too much, but that buddy isn't Robert Di Nero. In Tony Scott's 1996 thriller The Fan, Di Nero channels some of his past performances as unstable toxic males and overpowers the film in a rare case of the actor's feet being too big for the role's shoes. Although the thrills might not hit the heights of Willie Mays Hayes scoring from second on a bunt, the Running Scared boys review is sure to please as we call in a designated hitter for a little help: Winston McMartin of The Dark Side of Sport podcast. Together we ask the hardball questions like how does Gil have such incredible access to the team? Does Tony Scott know anything about baseball? Why did John Kruk have to die? Who paid for this soundtrack? Did Major League steal the ending they wanted for this movie? It's the episode that will have you running around third and coming home to score.
