I'm not always a fan of books-turned-into-movies, but I thought this was a great rendition of Michael Lewis' book. You don't have to be a baseball fan to like this movie and appreciate it's plot, and because it's a true story it's not quite your typical feel-good sports movie, although it definitely has that element. It held my interest right up to the end - partly because Brad Pitt was terrific, as always, and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jonah Hill were perfectly cast for their roles, as was the rest of the supporting cast. The writing was flawless, and even with some dramatic poetic license thrown in, and a good dose of humor, almost every scene in the movie seemed to ring true. In many ways, this movie has something for everyone - great for the whole family!

You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy Moneyball! If you are a fan of top-notch acting, Brad Pitt, or dramas based on true stories then this is your kind of film. The screenplay was co-written by Aaron Sorkin who gave us 'The Social Network' and 'Moneyball' is every bit as good.

A good, but not classic baseball movie. Enjoyed the story, but the concept at times didn't translate well.

Great writing, acting and an uplifting true story are all the components that made this film intriguing and compelling. I have to admit if I weren't a baseball fan I would have been lost in all the baseball fast talk and the general concept of the film. I'm a fan of baseball and a fan of this movie.
