Though it can't top the source material, Moneyball the movie is much like the undervalued players (misfit toys, as they're described) that Beane hires to populate his team on the cheap: it gets on base every time, and is occasionally exceptional.
The movie isn't about the love of the game as much as adapting to change, sticking to your guns, not letting conventional wisdom get the better of you. [it's] rebellious anti-establishment story arc should make it a populist crowd-pleaser.
