The Scout is the best comedy-fantasy about baseball ever made, which goes to show that if Hollywood keeps trying, eventually someone will get it right.
Even with the modest allure of Albert Brooks in what amounts to a mainstream effort, The Scout should get a quick trip to the showers.
The Scout was directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Mr. Brooks and Monica Johnson from a script written by Andrew Bergman years ago. It's probably not all that valuable to wonder how so many talented people went so wrong.
Rarely does a movie start high and go downhill so fast. It's as if the filmmakers progressively lost their nerve with every additional scene.
It's been a long time since there's been a good baseball movie. The Scout makes you wonder if there's ever going to be one again.
A genuine -- and immensely enjoyable -- curiosity.
An amusing comic premise, mixing baseball and psychiatry, gets lost along the way in a film that displays much evidence of post-production tampering.
Brooks is fun, nothing else in the movie is.
This is the laziest piece of work in the fall big-screen lineup so far.
Having sat through many a Fraser film, I am constantly amazed that there is nothing this boy can't do. Well, except act his way out of a paper bag.
Baseball fans will hate The Scout because it makes a mockery of the game. Not quite as badly as Ed, which stars a monkey as the star pitcher, but close. Non-baseball fans will hate it because it's not funny.
The Scout proves to be an unsatisfying single that should have been a home run.
really good sports flick
