'Moneyball' is right on the money, and hilarious. It's humor consists of uniformly understated, impeccably timed deadpan throwaways that come in under the radar and leave the audience roaring.

By keeping it all low-key, with the big moment followed by reflection rather than celebration, Moneyball avoids becoming a self-congratulatory fairy tale.

It is, in fact, quite a good movie. I don't think it is entirely subversive to suggest that it might have been a little bit better.

"Moneyball" ultimately leaves you with goose bumps all over, except not the good kind you get from a rousing crowd-pleaser.

A movie about baseball that contains surprisingly little baseball, it's more like The Bad News Bears with an economics degree.

Directed by Capote's Bennett Miller, this is one helluva good sports movie. It's a terrific movie, period.

Writer Aaron Sorkin works best at auctioneer speeds, and some of the best scenes involve Pitt's character working the phones, calling and stalling other teams' managers, trading players like a used-car salesman.

This is a baseball story that's less about game-winning hits and more about people willing to challenge the establishment.

Brad Pitt is at the top of his own game as Beane. Cocky and often nonchalant, he is gnawed by doubts that he tries to cover by grabbing a snack or pitching a grin.

That such a literally spreadsheet-intensive story could register real human thought and feeling at all has to count as some kind of triumph.

Moneyball is a great sports movie, yes, but it will also cross audiences. It's one of the year's finest.

Moneyball looks like an underdog sports movie, but it veers away from the path usually followed by films of the genre. My suggestion is that you set aside any preconceptions and just go with the flow.

Australia may not exactly be mad for the game, but I suspect - I hope - that the latest film from Bennett Miller (Capote) will inspire a few more people to become immersed in it.

Moneyball isn't just a great baseball movie; it's a great movie about baseball - and there's a difference.
