i think this was almost up there with "the natural",(starring robert redford,robert duvall, kim basinger &.glen close) i can't put it over the natural but it is right behind . The original "bad news bears"is also one of my fav. baseball movies since i was younger.

as you even see in the movie when you stand up to speak,someone always tries to shoot you down,but in the end they will always regret it ,you just know hoffmans charater did,he was a headstrong prick oposing sugestions made by pitts character. This baseball movie ,as i stated down below, is more about standing up rather than given in. also the daughter is a great additive to the story,she writes a song for her father and plays it on the guitar,thats' just one of the things that gave this movie that "film" feel. I might go to see it again. great films from first to last playing now.... money ball drive killer elite ides of march feel free to swap a couple

I didn't say that if you turned me upside down thousands of tiny little baseballs would fall out of my pocket but i know enough about baseball concerning playing in the neighborhood and at school in the past that it's a sport that's susposed to have good sportmanship and meaning and anyone that opens their eyes half way can see that many ball players in the "so called" professional arena have thrown that away to acheive fortune and fame using steroids and dishonest dealings under the table. This here though was a movie and for a movie i think it delivored nessasary lessons for us all. .... in my first comment below u will notice i ask a simple question that required no rude responce, was there a wiz kid involved, in the true story this was taken from? were the players spoken to behind close doors about different tatics they can use during the game ,like it portrays in the movie,something had to cause the great uturn they took in winning those string of games almost acheiving final victory.
Shut the f*ck up @coolnblue you dont know sh*t about baseball and youll be better off going home while the big boys talk.
to complete my comment i'll say many movies are designed to manipulate us,and to sell tickets at any cost so don't believe everything u see or hear. i walked away with the msg of standing up and remember that if the whole room is shouting the same thing ,it probaly is the same thing that can't further you into success. Pitt's character stands up against the bullies.
the best movie i've seen in a while,Dont' know much about professional baseball but that money and drugs alone have just about ruined it if u ask me. Lets face it ,there is alot of shady dealings going on behind the scenes such as gambling and peopl. e are probaly throwing games to get paid Do you Mram know there was no wiz kid behind the curtain?,excuse but i haven't done my research.
i really want to see this movie. But it really bothers me that Billy Beane gets all the credit for the season teh A,s had. They won that year because of Barry Zito, Tim Hudson, Mark Mulder, Eric Chavez, and Miguel Tejada. Not Because of scott hatteberg or there way of wining based on computers. Also they traded carlos pena to give scott hatteberg a shot and Carlos pena has had a much better carrer thatn hatterberg. im just saying if you know baseball you know that this movie is complete bull but it sdoes still look like a good movie.
I officially have two passes to watch this film in advance :D
