Consistently exciting and highly intelligent, as you might expect from a script by Steve Zaillian, who wrote Schindler's List, and Aaron Sorkin, who created The West Wing and won an Oscar for The Social Network.
Pitt is terrific as the film's complex, driven protagonist, and he and a heavy-hitting supporting cast, including Philip Seymour Hoffman's stubborn coach, take Aaron Sorkin's smart script and knock the ball right out of the park.
I had been reduced to a slobbering gushy mess by the end of this gloriously entertaining movie even though I'd spend the entirety of the running time before this marveling at how this is the least sentimental baseball movie ever.
