If you're in the mood for a baseball movie (or just a sports movie), you'll be satisfied with this one. The acting is solid and entertaining, but the scripts holds it back from being great. I sat there last night and thought, this is not "The Natural" for sure. Still, I was entertained.

This movie is worth the price. No it is not an Academy Award Winner, but it is a real winner as Clint Eastwood movies are. You will love this movie. I had to be excused badly toward the end, and I mean badly. I couldn't leave in order to see what happened.......That good! Go entertain yourself for the evening.

It is an entertaining movie with a good story line that doesn't require mental exertion to follow. It is an "easy" form of escape and after all isn't that what we go to the movies for? Liked by one and all.

In early days this would have been an excellent programmer but because the quality of films is so bad this steps up to A Class. Many traditional archs to the characters and story but because they are so well liked you embrace their story. Well worth watching but nothing extraordinary, just really good film making.

My wife, our friend & I enjoyed it. One of the main reasons I enjoyed it is I love Clint Eastwood. My question is, "How long can Clint keep playing a cantankerous old man with a raspy voice?" Here in "TWTC", he again plays a grumpy old man part and does it really well. But two movies in a row (Torino), may be a bit much. It was well written, along with the expert direction, camera angles & continuity editing made it an enjoyable movie easy to follow.. Eastwood's captivating performance along with the wonderful talents of Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, & John Goodman, make you actually feel their character's up & down frustrations & emotions. This all brought the movie to LIFE, even got my emotions activated.
The only thing that caught MY eye was the ending.. I won't give it away, but in the last few minutes, everything seemingly came together with UNBELIEVABLE circumstances. It was like they needed to finalize the movie, so they dreamed up this "ah come on" climax.
