“The Perfect Game” this was a very good movie with a touching story about a bunch of kids in a small poor town in Mexico. The boys got together with Cesar (Clifton Collins Jr.) who had a background in baseball who coached the kids to win the Little League World Championship. The movie brought out all the up’s and down’s in training from scratch, kids that new very little about playing baseball. This movie was a little emotional and it keeps you cheering for the Mexican team. This movie was taken from a true story of how kids from a poor town made it big in little league baseball. The acting was excellent and I liked the way they blended in the original black and white movie scenes into the movie itself. A must see for all ages.

I got to see this movie with my wife and friend at a movie preview. It was really good, it begins a little slow but half way through the movie it gets to be great. They show clips of the real team at times through the movie so you can get a feel of what it really looked like in that time. There was no cussing, this is an incredible family film.

But for now ill give it a GO.

I loved this movie! Great story and interesting storytelling. Loved the interweaving of news clips of the actual game. Also I really appreciated the realistic way Cesar handled the racism and Frankie the sexism of the time period. It was effective and evocative of the era for me, especially since I dislike revisionist history that so often creeps into movies and tv shows.
On a shallow note, I thought Frankie's wardrobe was divine.
