    Celtic Pride

    ★½

    Tried to wash out the taste of the Celtics' devastating 44-point loss to the Cavs from yesterday... and this mean-spirited, unrealistic, and unfunny 'comedy' only made it worse. A talented cast, authentic NBA integration, and a potentially fascinating premise are wasted on the unlikable characters and overused cliches. As a lifelong Celtics fan, I thought maybe I'd be able to appreciate this movie - but it doesn't do the city of Boston any favors. An unfortunately LAME film.

    Gyllenhaal is masterful.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as an enigmatic individual who muscles his way into the world of crime journalism: earning money by photographing accidents and murders late at night, and selling them to a local news station. He is a quirky, bottom-feeding opportunist, exhibiting signs of high-functioning autism... always communicating directly, if dishonestly with his mark.
