A decent flick but I expected more from John Grisham. It was hard to form a bond between any of the characters as they were all criminals or cheats and it also easily portrayed the evils of little league baseball (it has never been about the kids) but it did have some fun baseball scenes and decent acting. Nothing special here but worth a watch for baseball fans.
I've never played baseball, but I love this simple, well-told film. It doesn't pretend t be an earth-shaker, but it tells its story well. Using real ball players as actors gives it an authentic feeling missing in many better-known sports films.
FINE FAMILY FILM, HARRY CONNICK'S ACTING IS A LITTLE STIFF, BUT THE BOY WHO PLAYS HIS SON IN THE FILM, SHAWN SALINAS IS QUITE GOOD. A FEEL GOOD MOVIE WITH A GOOD MORAL. THERE IS A LOT OF BASEBALL PLAYING IN THE FILM, SO IF YOU DON'T LIKE BASEBALL, SKIP IT.
