Million Dollar Arm

Critics Consensus

Pleasant to a fault, Million Dollar Arm is a middle-of-the-plate pitch that coasts on Jon Hamm's considerable charm without adding any truly original curves to Disney's inspirational sports formula.

In a last-ditch effort to save his career, sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm) plans to find baseball's next star pitcher. He heads to India to find a cricket player whom he can nurture into a major league star.

    Really a 4.25, but I can't give quarter stars on here obviously lol. This is a damn good sports film. It's an inspiring story. Million Dollar Arm has a great mix of good acting, comedy, drama, a touch of Moneyball, and a dash of romance. I would recommend it to anyone, even if they're not a fan of baseball or sports in general.n

    A enjoyable and to an extent charming story which really happened. Hamm is believable and hits the right note as a failing sports agent who hatches a plan to find baseball pitchers in India who will be nurtured for a tryout for MLB scouts. The two young Indian actors are very good as is Arkin, Bell and Paxton. It can drag in spots but overall a very good sports drama. 10-19-2014
