A well-made, enjoyably predictable, by-the-numbers sports drama.

Hamm and Bell have real chemistry together and the supporting players - apart from Arkin's perfunctory performance - uniformly keep pace with the leads.

The art of the deal gives way to matters of the heart, giving viewers a game changer both charming and uplifting.

"Million Dollar Arm" is bland and overlong at 124 minutes. Simply put, there is nothing here of interest.

Based on a true story, this is one of those relentlessly uplifting Disney movies that mixes comedy and emotion to inspire and move the audience.

Craig Gillespie's by-numbers schmaltzathon never transcends its tourist's-eye views of India or patronisingly cliched views of its people.

Jon Hamm turns on the charm and scores a home run.

In its own gently comical way, Million Dollar Arm plays up the misunderstandings between Hollywood and India -- as well as the mutual fascination.

Though it doesn't offer much by way of freshness, Million Dollar Arm is about as enjoyable as a predictable film gets, thanks to a feel good mix of genuine heart and wit.

It might sound like a superhero movie but Million Dollar Arm is a stirringly human drama based on a true story and a welcome reminder that extraordinary feats can be achieved by mere mortals.

A cold, hard business story, reshaped by Disney into a warm, fuzzy hug.

There's nothing wildly unpredictable on offer here, but it still winningly manages to sneak its way past your defences.

The steady hand of director Craig Gillespie (whose previous work includes the off-kilter Lars and the Real Girl) is evident throughout, and the result is warm, witty and thoroughly entertaining.

Hamm's charm works well playing a debonair scoundrel on television but in this bland, family friendly offering, it's a resource that's quickly drained.

Very funny underdog comedy that's genuinely heartwarming and full of charm.

A cross between Bend It Like Beckham and Cool Runnings, you can see what Disney is pitching from a mile away, but it's polished and pleasant.

Hamm and Bell keep this hooey light, but you can't lob a ball in here without hitting notes played better in Jerry Maguire and Slumdog Millionaire.

You don't have to be a sports fan to like this movie, and even when it's getting predictable you'll probably find yourself enjoying it anyway. It's not brilliant or daring, but it's got genuine heart...

... has trouble finding the strike zone, and in the baseball-movie canon, is likely to be relegated to the bullpen.
