Critic Review - E! Online

The entertaining banter between Pitt and Jonah Hill isn't quite enough to make such an insular world compelling.

Ummmm so you didn't like the movie because you don't like baseball? Not a very good review from a professional reviewer

Folks, Luke is a joke on all of us. We have been punked. This is not a real review.

An opinion of which I am not in agreement. Unlike your review, I found the movie intelligent and entertaining. To each his/her own.

This review is from E!... Their only contact with sport is wrapped up in the arms of the Kardashians'.

Looks like Luke got cut from the t-ball when he was a child.

A) His was not the first negative review. In fact, there are nine such reviews. So I'm guessing that your math skills won't land you in the Oakland A's front office anytime soon. B) No critic with integrity would (or should) care how their review affects Tomatometer percentages.

Luke Y. Thompson isn't recognized on this site as a top critic. That's not to speak ill of Mr. Thompson, just one of those RT quirks.

@retard
a. His was the first negative review for top critics (top critics is the only useful stat on rotten tomatoes) b. I scored a 700 on the math on the SAT's and I probably could get a job for the Oakland A's but that would be so beneath my level.... c. why the fuck would he be rating a movie on the tomatometer if he didn't care about the overall rating???? d. he's the only top critic who didn't like the flick, Out of all the top critics out there, only 1 didn't like it, I think luke missed the boat on his review. e. don't you have anything better to do then to criticize me online?

a. dude I got a perfect score on the SAT's in math when I was 16 years old, I could get a job with the Oakland A's but that would not pay me enough money to put food on the table for my family

100% SAT's in math, but certainly not in English dude. The short form of "you are" is "you're", not "your".

Dude. How about SAT English? The short form of "you are" is you're, not your. "You're the reason this movie isn't 100%..."

The SATs you took probably mean Stupid Talking Asshole. I can understand your perfect score.

How about SAT's in English dude? The short form if "you are" is you're, not your.

You aren't a baseball fan but you are supposed to be a professional reviewer which should extend a promise to your readers / viewers a modicum of unemotional prose...and yet you yourself indicate the dialog was entertaining - if you were entertained, how can you down the movie?

Advice? If you cannot honestly review every film, every genre...take a bow - there's nothing wrong with saying, "Hey, I don't like baseball so I'm not going to review this film."

You're the worst. The only way you could improve your pitiful little existence would be to walk yourself and your shitty little reviews into on-coming traffic. I hope horrible things happen to you forever. There is a little spot reserved in hell where Humphrey Bogart is going to sodomize you for eternity with a broken mop handle. Ya hack.

Sadly (because I absolutely love Aaron Sorkin) this review is fairly accurate. The film is good, but if you do not care about baseball as a sport, it is hard to connect with it at any emotional level.

I know Sorkin loves baseball, and I got the feeling this film was aimed at those who share his love. Nothing wrong with that.

The guy from E! calls the movie insular. But we can't really blame him for writing a review with his reader's taste in mind (i.e teenage girls).
