About the Movie
Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane and D.B. Sweeney score in this uplifting story of triumph over adversity that "hits an emotional home run." Conor O'Neill (Reeves) is a down-on-his-luck gambler in debt to dangerous loan sharks. Desperate for cash, Conor reluctantly takes a job coaching a youth baseball team. The "team" turns out to be a ragtag group of tough-talking kids from Chicago's inner city. Secretly, Conor plans to desert the team after he wins a big bet. But the stakes are higher than Conor imagined: The kids need someone to believe in. As Conor wrestles with his past, the kids start to teach him some lessons that will forever change his future-that responsibility and trust must be earned and hope can appear in the most unlikely places.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Does surprisingly few lurches as it walks the tightrope between urban realism ... and family entertainment.
Rotten: The movie is so littered with cliches of genre, as well as cliches of artifice in Reeves' pained performance, that any semblance of social reality goes foul.
Rotten: A smarmy proposition passing itself off as family fun in the style of The Bad News Bears.
Rotten: There's no cork inside Hardball, but there's more than enough corn.
