Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hancock's heartfelt movie scores a solid hit.
Fresh: Deftly constructed to stoke the baseball-phenom fantasies of coulda-shoulda-woulda middle-aged guys and fields-of-dreaming young diamond studs.
Fresh: Morris ultimately lasted two partial seasons in the majors, and the film's rendering of his minor-league struggle is so enjoyable you want to see more of that and less of the everyday life preceding it.
Rotten: Earnest to the point of blandness.
this is one of the greatest sports movies iv ever seen
