Movies I Forgot Existed: Celtic Pride

I’m not expecting many of you to remember this 1996 Damon Wayans classic considering it was such a critical and commercial failure. But regardless, I enjoy it. Celtic Pride followed two crazy Boston Celtic fanatics (Daniel Stern and Dan Aykroyd) and their plot to stop the Utah Jazz and their star player (Wayans) from defeating their beloved team in the NBA playoffs. What’s interesting is that while researching this, I found out that Judd Apatow wrote the screenplay. Many of us forget that he did stuff before the 40-Year-Old Virgin. Despite the fact that Aykroyd and Wayans being moderate stars at the time, the film grossed under $10 million.
