A movie about baseball that contains surprisingly little baseball, it's more like The Bad News Bears with an economics degree.

Moneyball is a winner, one of the freshest and smartest sports movies in years.

Directed by Capote's Bennett Miller, this is one helluva good sports movie. It's a terrific movie, period.

Writer Aaron Sorkin works best at auctioneer speeds, and some of the best scenes involve Pitt's character working the phones, calling and stalling other teams' managers, trading players like a used-car salesman.

This is a baseball story that's less about game-winning hits and more about people willing to challenge the establishment.

Brad Pitt is at the top of his own game as Beane. Cocky and often nonchalant, he is gnawed by doubts that he tries to cover by grabbing a snack or pitching a grin.

That such a literally spreadsheet-intensive story could register real human thought and feeling at all has to count as some kind of triumph.

Moneyball is a great sports movie, yes, but it will also cross audiences. It's one of the year's finest.

Moneyball looks like an underdog sports movie, but it veers away from the path usually followed by films of the genre. My suggestion is that you set aside any preconceptions and just go with the flow.

Australia may not exactly be mad for the game, but I suspect - I hope - that the latest film from Bennett Miller (Capote) will inspire a few more people to become immersed in it.

Moneyball isn't just a great baseball movie; it's a great movie about baseball - and there's a difference.

Moneyball is more interesting than your typical sports drama thanks to the direction. Bennett Miller takes a rather grey, cement-enshrouded setting and gives it a little pizzazz.

The end result mirrors the actual season Moneyball depicts, a memorable run but a loss in the final game played.

A fine, strong, adult movie, and its theme can easily apply to any number of other walks of life.

Even when delving deep into stats talk, one doesn't need to be at all interested in baseball, much less sports geek minutiae, to be hooked in.
