The strongest scenes take place in dingy hotel rooms, on a deserted farm or in the rehab sessions. It's during these moments that "Home Run" swings for the fences, and often connects.
It's preaching the gospel of a 12-step recovery program with a heavy helping of Jesus for guidance. And the corn can get pretty high ...
As Christian-themed movies go, this one may not be an over-the-fence hit, but decent enough acting almost compensates for a clichéd plot that's intended as a too-obvious illustration/inspiration.
An inspirational and entertaining movie about a baseball player's road to recovery from addiction.
Baseball, little kids and religion could be a queasy formula for the movie blues but, happily, this one slides down pretty easily.
It delivers its message of hope and healing in a manner that is honest, entertaining and authentic, in a film that can reach audiences both religious and secular.
Boilerplate rise-fall-redemption stuff that works more when it's trying to do less.
