Amazing Grace and Chuck is destined to go down in history as the camp classic of the anti-nuke genre. As amazingly bad as it is audacious, film will live forever in the hearts of connoisseurs of Hollywood’s most memorably outrageous moments.

Little League baseball pitcher Chuck Murdock, having been shown a Minuteman missile under the Montana prairie, announces, ‘I can’t play because of nuclear weapons.’ Who should read a news report of the incident but Boston Celtics star Amazing Grace Smith (played by Denver Nuggets great Alex English), who promptly gives up his $1 million-per-year salary to join Chuck in protest of nukes. In no time, hundreds of athletes on both sides of the Iron Curtain are refusing to play until the ultimate weapon is eliminated.

When it looks as though the upcoming baseball season will have to be cancelled the President of the United States (an impressive Gregory Peck) summons young Chuck to the White House to drum some sense into him.
