Mark Hughes
Forbes

You don't have to be a sports fan to like this movie, and even when it's getting predictable you'll probably find yourself enjoying it anyway. It's not brilliant or daring, but it's got genuine heart...

... has trouble finding the strike zone, and in the baseball-movie canon, is likely to be relegated to the bullpen.

As far as sports movies go, like Hamm, it's immensely likeable.

"Million Dollar Arm" benefits from a strong performance by Jon Hamm in the lead and a top-notch supporting cast.

Its true story actually smells rather fishy in that almost everything about it plays as manufactured schmaltz.

Laramie Movie Scope

Although this film is based on a true story, it looks as if the facts were smashed to a paste which was then molded into the exact shape of a typical sports underdog story. It works.

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

It doesn't have a mean bone in its overly long body of a script. The touch of Disney, a family-friendly PG rating and a baseball story add up to a crowd-pleaser in 'Million Dollar Arm.'

It so thoroughly pillages 'Jerry Maguire' you expect 'Arm's' core crop of Indian athletes to start screaming 'show me the rupees!'

Honolulu Star-Advertiser

All the potential edges have been sanded off. And so, a quite remarkable true story, no matter how truthfully told, feels like a formulaic fable.

The money matters dilute the sports angle so much it keeps the film from being the home run it should have been. But it still drives home some entertaining and sweet moments.
