It's just hard to root for [Jon Hamm's character], which in turn makes it hard to root for "Million Dollar Arm."

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

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

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

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.

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

Its true story actually smells rather fishy in that almost everything about it plays as manufactured schmaltz.

A completely by-the-numbers affair.

The best thing that can be said about Million Dollar Arm is that it wears its emotions honestly. But as a fan of baseball, I have to say that matchups are always more interesting when you go into that first inning unaware of who's going to win the game.

There is a gaping hole where "Million Dollar Arm"'s heart should be that widens to crater-size in the second half.

The potentially huge audience for "Million Dollar Arm" deserves a better movie, less derivative and cynical and more like something real. What a concept.

Million Dollar Arm spoils the Disney sports movie hot streak with the vengeance that David Ortiz does no-hitters.
May 16, 2014
Same old slow-pitch fluff that can be seen coming from a mile away.
