This film pales in comparison to other baseball flicks that have hit the big screen. Being able to determine a prospect's worth by the sound of his bat is silly. Their are so many goofs and cliches.

Being able to determine a prospect's worth by the sound of his bat is silly. Their are so many goofs and cliches. The ending will leave many scratching their head. It tries to be feel good but comes off awkward and silly. Expand

Horrible movie. I love baseball movies...but it is clear there were no baseball players on the production team. Not sure how such an amazing cast could push out this garbage.

Sadly this movie is not worthy of him, or the other fine actors on it. The movie is little more than a series of drab cliches, strung together is a plodding and predictable manner. It limps, coughs , and stutters along, never getting off the ground; and finally ends with "and everyone lived happily ever after" that would embarrass the director of a G (for gooey sweet) movie aimed at a six year old audience level. While Amy Adams, and John Goodman give sophisticated, nuanced, and strong performances, they only serve to show up how very bad the movie is. Justin Timberlake is egregiously miscast to play opposite Amy Adams, and he comes off as a high school drama club reject... when compared against Adam's exceptional performance. I am a long time fan of Clint Eastwood, and wish I could give at least a warm review to this film. However, as I and one other person were the only people sitting in a theater that could accommodate hundreds, this afternoon it is hard to miss the obvious. My advice: skip the popcorn, you'll have more than enough old chestnuts to chew on. Better yet, rent an old Clint Eastwood film, and enjoy him in his glory days. Expand
