Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The Scout was directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Mr. Brooks and Monica Johnson from a script written by Andrew Bergman years ago. It's probably not all that valuable to wonder how so many talented people went so wrong.
Rotten: Even with the modest allure of Albert Brooks in what amounts to a mainstream effort, The Scout should get a quick trip to the showers.
Rotten: Rarely does a movie start high and go downhill so fast. It's as if the filmmakers progressively lost their nerve with every additional scene.
Rotten: It's been a long time since there's been a good baseball movie. The Scout makes you wonder if there's ever going to be one again.
its an alright movie its worth watching but i wouldnt define it as a classic and remeber quotes from it but id say its worth a rent
I got the dvd it is a good movie it has its funny parts. And what is with the genre Itunes it is not Drama it is so Comedy i mean really Itunes. Dont worry itunes you are still the best!
Three words: "Not Good"
I'll put it like this: my wife's dad sent us the DVD, we watched it once, and didn't even just tuck it away in our movie library - it went into the trash can. Right up (down?) there with Caddyshack 2 as one of the worst movies either of us have ever seen.
