  • Summary: In 1957, a barefooted, rag-tag team of boys from poverty stricken Monterrey, Mexico, defy extraordinary odds to become the first foreign team to win the Little League World Series-doing so in a perfect game-the only one in championship history. Based on a true story, The Third Miracle tells the tale of how their miracle changed, not only their lives but the life of an entire city, and of their world-weary coach who gains the redemption of his long lost dream.

  1. Really a perfect family movie.
  2. 75
    The film's flaws probably won't bother less jaded kids one whit.

    Much like a Sox starter struggling for the first couple of innings before settling down, The Perfect Game takes a while to get to the parts worth cheering.
  4. 40
    Well-meaning but thick with cliches.
  5. A lot of heart, a jaunty mariachi score and a lush Eisenhower-era look help as the family-friendly story follows the usual sports-drama plays.
  6. So overwhelmed by its own based-on-actual-events tale that it can’t find the tone to tell it effectively.

    Although based on the real-life tale of nine underage underdogs from Monterrey, Mexico who swept the 1957 Little League World Series, this Cinderella sports story rings false from first pitch to last.

    A great story. The rough edges match the themes of the inspirational story. Child actors sometimes talk in a way adults think is forced or inauthentic. Any teacher or coach of the young is not surprised by any of the dialog. What took them so long to produce this film? Collapse
