Calvin Marshall Reviews

Most baseball movies are about dreams; Calvin Marshall is a sentimental comedy about self-delusion, and the young actor Alex Frost can't find a way to make sense of Calvin, or to make him sympathetic.

Director Gary Lundgren's Calvin Marshall eventually falls flat in its heavy-handed efforts to score an emotional homerun.

When you don't care about the character who gives a movie its name, you've got terminal problems.

A grand-slam comic drama that's heartwarming, funny, inspirational and, above all, triumphant.

A rare and invigorating spotlight on the back to basics collective spirit among salt of the earth workingclass enthusiasts of any game played among them, simply for the love of sports beyond money and fame. And just the way it was always meant to be.

A baseball movie suffused with authentic patter and love for the game equal to that harbored by its titular character.

[Director] Lundgren has a light touch and a weakness for wistful indie lullabies; it is the former that gives this classic coming-of-age film its distinctive ring.

Lundgren's screenplay beautifully juggles the story's alternately comic and poignant elements and renders all three main characters with surprising depth.
