Rookie of the Year Reviews

June 4, 2018
Inning after inning, Rookie of the Year goes down swinging, ignominiously. It's strictly bush league stuff.

If you don't know baseball, you won't understand the climax. If you do, you'll find it preposterous.

The first third or so of Rookie of the Year is hysterically funny, but then the film settles into a sentimental rut, only to pick up again here and there with amusing bits.

This movie is not likely to make my list of the year's best, but I can remember those miserable Little League games and so in a modest way I'm grateful for this film. It is pure wish-fulfillment, 40 years after I needed it.
