Critic Reviews for Home Run

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

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 ...

Almost from the beginning the message overwhelms the medium.

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.

Movie Metropolis

This slightly better-than-average family film is all paint-by-numbers.

Audience Reviews for Home Run

Love this movie!! Great movie for a family movie night!! Of course, it's PG13 for good reason, so keep that in mind! Great Christian message!

It's a decent movie, but also not a huge sports movie. It's really biased about one person and a 12 step recovery process but most films are like this.

Boring, predictable, and poorly scripted, what could have been an interesting drama relies too much on faith to appeal anyone else.
