Watch Eddie's Million Dollar Cook-Off - Alternative Versions.
Hank Ogden (Mark L. Taylor) is a coach for a junior-high level
community baseball team, the Groundhogs. Unfortunately, the team is
much closer to the Bad News Bears than the New York Yankees. Hank's son
Eddie (Taylor Ball) is one of the few quality players, and Hank thinks
he has a shot of making it to the major leagues. Although Eddie likes
baseball, he discovers that his true passion is for cooking. Eddie's
Million Dollar Cook-Off is the comic tale of conflicting desires and
expectations between Eddie and his friends, family and teammates over
Although some viewers may have difficulty looking past the exaggerated
social beliefs and interactions fueling a prominent "moral of the
story", this is a great, funny film that succeeds because of the style,
subtlety and comic sense of director Paul Hoen, aided by excellent
performances. I don't think I've ever seen food fights filmed this
artfully before. Yes, food fights are clichéd, and much of the script,
on its own, would be somewhat clichéd and banal, but Hoen and the cast
manage to make the film feel fresh and original. I almost felt as
though I had never seen a film centered around food before--your eyes
are opened to the many metaphorical ways that such a commonplace thing
is woven through our lives.
Of course, this film isn't just about food, though. Eddie's Million
Dollar Cook-Off is intended to help shatter gender
stereotypes--especially the way we try to graft them on to our
children. The message is to follow your dreams, and be what you want to
be, whether it's what others have planned for you, or expect of you, or
not. At the same time, there's a message about supporting others in
following their dreams. These are valuable messages for people of any
age, not just kids, and the exaggerated and old-fashioned-seeming
pigeonholing shown by the characters in the film are only cartoonish to
emphasize the point.
This might all sound dreadfully serious and preachy, but the film
doesn't tend to play that way. It plays as lighthearted, humorous and
heartwarming. Just be careful that your kids don't have easy access to
blenders and ovens after they watch the film, or you'll have some
serious cleaning to do.
A 9 out of 10 from me.
