Symbolism In The Movie Beer League

If you have ever seen the movie Beer League, then you would know that this movie centers around Artie Devanzo a guy who is the town drunk and has no job or a girlfriend. He spends alot of his time at Ed’s Bar and Swill. Artie has decided to play baseball for Ed’s Bar and Swill against his arch enemy Dennis Mangenelli who has a league named Mangenelli Fitness. Well, in their first game against each other the teams become involved in a big fight against each other.I found some more information here. When the towns police chief puts and end to the fight by claiming that who ever wins the season will be the one team that gets to remain in the league, and the team that loses will be completely out of the league for good. This movie seems to center around a loser nobody who steps up to the plate and finally tries to achieve something in his life. Although his team fails anyways, he is still considered a winner,and he will surely make himself so buy stealing the winners trophy. The producer Artie Lange who actually stared as the main character seem to portray the character quit with great wit and humor. Beer League made a maximum of 475,000 dollars and was not met with a very popular reception.
