Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For Mr. Sayles, whose idealism has never been more affecting or apparent than it is in this story of boyish enthusiam gone bad in an all too grown-up world, Eight Men Out represents a home run.
Rotten: Sayles often seems like a man who, trying to stretch a single, gets caught between bases and is desperately trying to evade the rundown.
Fresh: Perhaps the saddest chapter in the annals of professional American sports is recounted in absorbing fashion in Eight Men Out.
Fresh: It's a period re-created with a whoosh of energy and a redeeming vein of irony.
Under Appreciated Baseball Film!!!
This is a top ten sports movie. Great cast and John Cusack shines. He is a very sympathetic character, whose story breaks my heart everytime I see it.
When I first heard of this movie i didn't know how much i would love it. This movie is under rated for how great it is. 1 of my top 5 favorite sports movies.
Best Baseball film ever!
