Ironic that the Cavaliers are playing the Celtics in the Playoffs when we are doing this review.  Also, sorry for the delay in this week's upload.

Join us as we dive into the world of Mike O'Hara and Jimmy Flaherty, two die-hard Boston Celtics fans played by Daniel Stern and Dan Aykroyd, respectively.

In the heart of the NBA Finals, Mike and Jimmy are convinced that their beloved Celtics need their support more than ever to clinch the championship. But when they witness their team's star player Lewis Scott, portrayed by Damon Wayans, performing poorly, they decide to take matters into their own hands.

What follows is a hilarious rollercoaster ride as Mike and Jimmy kidnap Scott, hoping to keep him out of the final games to give the Celtics a winning edge. As their plan spirals out of control, they find themselves in absurd situations, trying to hide Scott while navigating the complexities of fandom, friendship, and ethics.

Directed by Tom DeCerchio, "Celtic Pride" delivers laughs aplenty as it explores the lengths to which sports fans will go for their team. With a stellar cast including the comedic talents of Stern, Aykroyd, and Wayans, the film serves up a mix of slapstick comedy and heartfelt moments.

Join us as we dissect the comedic genius behind "Celtic Pride," exploring its themes of loyalty, obsession, and the unpredictable nature of sports fandom.
