There are no big surprises, but Mac and director Charles Stone III hit all the right dramatic notes, and Angela Bassett is reliably smart and sexy as Mac's love interest.

The movie may not rank in the Hall of Fame for baseball flicks, but Stone and his star do honor to the heart of the game, and provide enough comedy curve balls to stay above the fray of the encroaching clichés.

A solid, enjoyable early Autumn baseball film, and just in time for the MLB playoffs.

There are big laughs along the way, but it's Mr. 3000's unflinchingness in reaching feelgood payoffs that's most gripping.

This is a story about a guy who realizes that it's not what you accomplish in life that matters but the grace with which you accomplish it.

Sure, Mr. 3000 may be a mere bunt in a traditional game that fancies majestic home runs but it is nevertheless the impact of the hit that counts at the moment.

An uncompromisingly grown-up comedy that any willing adult can see in any multiplex in the country.

Overall, it is a fun fluff of a movie that is good at what it wants to be, and not much more than that.

Mac is superb as the egomaniacal man boy finally getting his come-uppance and needing to change his game. Angela Bassett is a warm, sexy plus as a sportscaster and former love interest.
