  • Handsome but standard-issue heartland fare.

  • The offscreen story of these unknowns getting their autobiographical drama to the screen proves more interesting and inspiring than the polished, earnest, rather routine movie itself.

  • Without making a fuss about it, Touching Home looks squarely at working-class people for whom professional sports are not just a fantasy, they are also a way out of a dead-end existence.

  • While the Millers have a physical presence, they're hardly actors. In fact, it's often difficult to tell them apart, although one of them is missing a tooth and takes off his shirt a lot.

  • Although convincing as athletes, neither Miller belongs on a movie screen; personal parable or not, this feels like a too-familiar trip around the bases.

  • The story behind Touching Home is more inspiring than the film itself, but don't let that deter you. It's the kind of can-do miracle that reminds us all that anything can happen and everything is possible.

    Nice, slow moving, touching biodrama. Ed Harris is wonderful, as usual. Obviously not the biggest budget, but very often this makes for a more hearfelt film. I would put this one in that category. Really well done with alot of heart...
