I am the biggest baseball fan on the planet. Baseball movies make up a whole section of my DVD collection, and based on the title and DVD cover of this film, I was led to believe that this was another baseball movie, it's not. What this movie is, is a terrific story, about three boys who break out of sleep away camp, to find out why their parents have been acting so strangely. These boys cross the state to get to the truth and what they find is really unexpected and made for one hell of a story. I really didn't figure out what was going on until the very end and once I did the rating for this film went way up, as it makes the story pure genius! You also wouldn't expect the acting in a movie centered around three kids to be as good as it was, but these boys were terrific. Soren Fulton plays Joe, the twelve year old leader of the group. Even at the rip old age of twenty-one, this kid has been in everything and had a ton of experience coming into this thing, so his strong performance wasn't so unexpected. What did surprise me was just how good Matthew Borish was. Aside from the TV show, Hack, Borish hasn't been in anything before this film, but he really made it exciting, playing the role of Tiger. Tiger is the small kid who always has to act tough and be crazy, not only to get respect, but to cover up how troubled his life is. Borish gives a performance that is both funny and heartbreaking, he did a truly incredible job. Rounding First will make you laugh, boost your curiosity, and give you something to watch that is out of the ordinary. I was disappointed once I figured out that this wasn't a baseball movie, but what I saw may have been even better.

Of course I have a role in this motion picture so my opinion may be biased.

But this is a great family film in the vein of "Stand By Me".

The leads are excellent. But special kudos goes to my friend, Matt Borish who plays Tiger.
