We laughed...we cried...we sat on the edge of our seats, then we found ourselves so rapped up in the movie that we were feeling the feelings the main character experienced. Wow! What a great emotionally charged and dramatic movie!
All I can say is you have to see it!

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!!!

This was a great story that everyone can relate to on many different levels. The characters were very engaging. I really enjoyed Vivica Fox as the Cory's agent. Scott Elrod really showed great depth and feeling as he faced his current reality of despair and disarray. Then began the process of change by finally focusing on the solution that would bring him the true desires of his heart; peace, joy and happiness.
The movie illustrates well the process it takes for many to conquer their demons and be free to enjoy a life of fulfillment, thinking beyond themselves and the moment.

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!

Home Run is a FANTASTIC movie!!! The storyline is excellent with great character development, and the acting is very good too. Sadly in many Christian movies, the acting is lame and the movie suffers; but this one is spot on. It has a wonderful message of redemption without being too preachy for non-believers. "No hurt is beyond healing. No habit is beyond help. No hang-up is beyond hope. Freedom is possible.”
