Million Dollar Arm Movie Reviews
User reviews on Million Dollar Arm
Good, but not great. It had its moments. What I didn't like is that Jon Hamm's character was a jerk for a good part of the movie. Hard to get behind a guy who's a jerk. He came around, but the long journey made you not like his character. The story was cool, though. All-in-all, probably worth seeing in the theater.
I did not really want to see this film but my family is visiting and pretty much all of them love baseball. I agreed to see this film because Jon Hamm is in it and I absolutely adore him and i knew that he will make this film bearable for me. Well, this movie wasn’t as bad as I thought it will be, yes it was formulaic and very predictable, but it was also really sweet. Jon Hamm made the film very charming and i liked that it wasn’t too long, I really dislike that movies nowadays run for 2 or more hours. The film was made to please the crowd and please baseball fans and it does those 2 things very well. I am not sure if this movie is worth seeing on the big screen, but you might enjoy it at the comfort of your home.
I am not a big fan of sports films but i am a big fan of Jon Hamm and when my friend invited me to see this film with her, I agreed. The film wasn’t bad but it was also not particularly good, i guess the word that I am looking for is mediocre. The film is likable and it has a very charming leading man that makes the film watchable. The film is really predictable but baseball fans will still eat it up. I am not baseball fan so I was indifferent to that, however I liked how warm and sweet this film is. It is a feel-good film that will please the crowd and you will leave the theater feeling happy. Overall, I recommend seeing this film with your whole family, that is if you like baseball.
Really Good and a lot of fun for everyone. This may not be some incredible cinematic masterpiece, but this is why you go to the movies, to enjoy what you watch. Admittedly, the movie is kind of plain jane, but I liked that they focused the story on the agent instead of the player. Don Hamm is great, and this could be the begining of his transition into the next Clooney!
