The Perfect Game Reviews

No ironic detachment for William Dear's latest film: It may have every cliché in the book, but The Perfect Game means everything it says.

It's all stencil work without a single touch of novelty, inspiration or originality.

The Perfect Game proves that you don't always have to reach for lofty heights to work. It's certainly not a classic. It's a simple pleasure for those times when that's all you need.

It's hard not to root for an underdog, especially a relentlessly optimistic one, and the reality is Game has a lot of heart. But not much in the way of legs.

Packed with everything you'd want from an inspiring sports story. The pieces aren't put together as neatly as one would hope, but the film easily achieves the intended effect.

Notable only for being a catalog of just about every kid-pic cliche' ever committed to film.

The Perfect Game is an earnest tribute, but the story could have been rendered more convincingly.

A very slow and terrible film. This little league baseball story is so full of holes, that even diehard fans of the game would be hard pressed to sit through it. Paul Chambers, CNN.

This movie is what's known as family entertainment, which means in this case that it's interesting and harmless.

[From] the second minute of the movie I knew every single thing that was going to happen and there was not a single surprise.

It's an unabashedly corny but occasionally stirring dramedy based on the true-life story of scrappy young baseball players from Mexico.

Sentimental, inspiring tale about Little League underdogs.

So overwhelmed by its own based-on-actual-events tale that it can't find the tone to tell it effectively.

There has been only one perfect game in the history of the Little League World Series, and the story is as unlikely and as perfect as any underdog sports-movie fairy tale.

Anyone much older than, say, 10, will likely find the underdog saga sappy and manipulative, not to mention filled with sports movie cliches, including the following statement: "It will take a miracle to make them into a real team."

This inspirational film, written by first-timer (and producer) W. William Winokur, is not for cynics or those resistant to cute kids (and child actors sometimes given to mugging).

A big, bland serving of corn that wouldn't have been out of place on The Wonderful World of Disney 50 years ago.
