Artie Lange's Beer League Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

An unemployed, alcoholic thirtysomething who still lives with his mother and can't seem to muster the motivation to turn his life around finds that all's fair in love and softball when his team is threatened with ejection from the league in a raunchy sports comedy starring Howard Stern Show regular [[Performer~P240725~Artie Lange~artielange]]. For the sluggers from Ed's Bar and Swill, the weekly trip to the local diamond is more about drinking and roughhousing than it is about such technicalities as hitting home runs and striking out the opposing team. When their favorite pastime is threatened by the ultra-competitive athleticism of the league's villainous perennial champions -- led by local gym owner and current mayoral candidate Manganelli ([[Performer~P17983~Anthony de Sando~anthonydesando]]) -- this motley group of hard-drinking sportsmen must make one final push for the pennant and end their unprecedented losing streak if they hold out any hope of making it to another season. [[Performer~P44351~Ralph Macchio~ralphmacchio]], [[Performer~P11636~Seymour Cassel~seymourcassel]], and [[Performer~P48695~Laurie Metcalf~lauriemetcalf]] co-star, and longtime [[Feature~V175321~Saturday Night Live~saturdaynightlive[tvseries]]] contributor [[Performer~P241335~Frank Sebastiano~franksebastiano]] makes his directorial debut. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
