Editorial Reviews

We Believe celebrates the relationship between a great city, Chicago, and its baseball team, the Cubs. It's a film about hope, faith and Cubs fans. It is a smart,thought-provoking, uplifting, powerful and passionate film that is as much about people and heart as it is about baseball. It embodies the life lesson that it's the journey that's important, not the destination. First and foremost, We Believe is an entertaining movie, packed with emotion, humor, wonderful human moments and unique insight.

Let me start by saying I am a native Chicagoan and a life-long Cubs fan. If these two titles apply to you, then buy this film -- you won't be sorry!

But thinking how it might look to anyone else, I have to say, it's a bit of a jumble. The film is advertized as an examination of what it means to be a Cubs fan. We've seen this before: interviews with fans talking about tradition, loyalty, character, etc. And we get that here, and it's a bit better than most -- they they interviewed professional actors like Joe Mantegna and Bonnie Hunt, people who can speak coherently on-camera. Interestingly, they tried to tie Cub fans to the history of the city: the immigrants who flocked to Chicago to rebuild after the 1871 fire brought a work ethic and a can-do spirit that is reflected in the character of the city today, and in the nature of Cubs fandom. Well, maybe.

But as a result of this approach, parts of the film look like a travel promotion for the city. And while Chicago has never looked better, you start to wonder what all those beauty shots of the lakefront have to do with the Cubs. And the history of the city provided by the film is very abbreviated -- lots of important bits are omitted. It's like they came up with this great idea, but couldn't follow through.

Another thread in the film is Cubs history -- again, trying to tie this to modern fandom. Surprisingly, this is probably the weakest aspect of the film. They talk a LOT about the 1908 team, but don't even mention the 1906 Cubs, who set a record for winning percentage that still stands. Plenty on the championship teams of 1929-1945, but very little on the long dry spell of the '50s and '60s, when modern Cub-dom was born, and absolutely nothing on the brief respite of the Durocher years.

Part history of the city of Chicago Part history of the Cubs. Part overview of the 2008 season. All in all a very good film ......for Cubs fans. I don't think it will mean much to the uninitiated hence limiting the audience. However that being said, it was a good shot in the arm for the off season. Go Cubs Go!

I was excited to see this being the lifelong Cubs fan that I am but was disappointed by this as well. The film touches on several key points but tragically misses several points and Cub teams that needed to be addressed, mentioned and remembered. For instance, the film does well to promote the dominant 2008 Cubs but makes no mention of the Cinderella 2003 team that came within five outs of the world series. There's also a very brief segment on Bartmann. I wish they had touched on that more. There's no mention of the 84 Cubs, no brief backstory on Harry Caray, very little about Ryne Sandberg, Mark Grace, and others who helped shape the team.

Instead, the film focuses a lot on non baseball events such as the Chicago Fire, the immigrants coming over, and a couple meeting and marrying through association with being Cubs' fans. While all that was interesting, I did not spend money on this DVD to learn about those things. It really felt like a history lesson at the time I watched it instead of what it was supposed to be about: The Cubs and their century long drought. I wish they had used that time to talk about all the great and memorable Cub teams that there have been instead.

I would still buy this but would recommend "Catching Hell" instead for history regarding the Cubs.

I haven't had a chance to watch this yet, I have many DVD's abou Chicago and the Cubs and I like it when they interview Chicagoans like Tom Dressen, Gary Sinse, George Wendt, William Peterson, and Joe Montegna about their love for the Cubs. I have been a Cub fan ever since I was a little girl.
