Successful playwright Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) is not having a good day: his wife, Lillian (Catherine O'Hara), is considering divorce; his aging father (Tom Aldredge) is in poor health; and Nicky is convinced that his autobiographical play, scheduled to open on Broadway that evening, is going to be panned by drama critic Steven Schwimmer (Robert Downey Jr.). But, even more important is the fact that his beloved Boston Red Sox are playing the Mets in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series and, despite Nicky's doubts, just might win their first World Series. After getting involved in a series of traffic jams and conversations with foreign cabbies, Nicky misses the opening of his play and sits in a bar watching his baseball team on TV and fearing the worst in all of his worlds.
