This is a great movie about hope, forgiveness, redemption, love, and grace. It's also a movie about desperation, mistakes, victimization, abuse, and addiction. It doesn't glamorize the addiction nor make the 12 step program, Celebrate Recovery, seem like a cake-walk. It does show that, with God, true change is possible.
The acting is great. Scott Elrod is amazing in the lead role of the down and out, alcoholic pro ball player who has made a shambles of his life with one bad mistake after another. While this movie is not for kids, it is a great movie with a timeless message, and I highly recommend it!

Our whole family went with some friends. It was entertaining and meaningful. The main characters problems are real--very consistent with the story of Josh Hamilton. And his solution is real. While I've never been involved with Celebrate Recovery, I know several people whose lives have been saved by the ministry.

This movie was the type of feel good, inspirational movie that I love to watch. It ended up being a tear jerker (I guess because I related to it so much). Please don't pass up the chance to go and see this movie! Don't wait til it comes out on DVD...... Go See It Now!!

Home Run truly shows that change is possible. This movie shows a side of humanity that we don't normally show on the outside, the darkness and pain we bury deep inside us. Home Run shows that there is a place where we can come to; a place to share our hurts and our pain. A place where we will find love, acceptance, grace and HOPE. And those places are church and Celebrate Recovery, where we all come as we are, broken and scarred and imperfect. Home Run is just that, a HOME RUN!!!

Good story line. Everybody has hurts and hang-ups and you don't even realize it! This movie helps you to realize it and know that God is there for you and so are His people.
