Cleveland fans (or Yankee haters, of which there are doubtless many): go with Major League (1989), while the matchup lasts. It's nostalgia-free, and good comedy as well. (And as far as Charlie Sheen and Wesley Snipes go, you just won't do much better.)
But if, for some reason, the bats and balls do not enthrall, there are other things. On Wednesday, 100 weathermen blew into Washington, D.C. to give the President his annual tribute of Al Roker's weight in gold--and basically to yak about global warming, which, as Al said, "we don't like." They should have all watched Soylent Green (1973): Chuck Heston in a classic 'open your eyes, dammit!' film with a conscience, in which pollution, overpopulation, and the greenhouse effect have conspired to cram 40 million people into New York, where it is 95 degrees year-round. A very sweaty movie, and family viewing only if your kids won't recycle. But Chuck is an institution.
