Like a long, boring game of chess, where hopeful baseball players are discarded as effortlessly as a pawn and a knight, Moneyball fails to provide the sentiment it needs to inspire audiences.

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

Moneyball is one of the few movies to leave me thinking "that should have been a segment of This American Life."

A wavering, intermittently smart story of daring to think differently that often flattens its narrative into formula.

Those who enter the cinema unstirred by either the sport or by the joys of stats are unlikely to come out converts.

Brad Pitt in a dugout. Oh dear; oh dear. Here is baseball, reel upon reel and inning upon inning.

What is most maddening about "Moneyball" is that its Hall of Fame potential is squandered on crass sentimentality, a lack of focus and a exasperating refusal to take a hard look at the way the business of baseball is run today.

The stats don't add up.

Moneyball is, in the end, undone by its excessively subdued atmosphere and pace...

Moneyball should be a much better movie than it actually is.

Naysayers have been claiming for years that the Moneyball book wouldn't work as a movie. But ultimately, it's the cinematic touches that keep this film version from becoming something exceptional.

The entertaining banter between Pitt and Jonah Hill isn't quite enough to make such an insular world compelling.

While intriguing and beautifully presented and featuring a mature and compelling performance by Brad Pitt, Moneyball is oddly never as engrossing as the subject matter suggests it should be.

Okay. Let's get this right at the beginning. I liked Moneyball... But hear me out. Moneyball could have been great.

Like The Social Network, the zeitgeist is palpable in spite of the story's stark insularity -- virtually nothing and no one exist outside of the ballpark in Moneyball, but you still feel you have a stake in the outcome.

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

'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.
