I loved The Natural and enjoyed Bull Durham. Will I like FTLOTG?

This is definitely a rent-before-you-buy title - very limited replay value. It's not really like The Natural or Bull Durham, both of which seemed more genuine and honest in their plots. FLOTG is very manipulative, IMO, in trying to get to your emotions, and in some scenes you sit there and think about how over the top it is instead of getting into it. Plus, John C. Reilly is distractingly bad as the catcher - he's totally out of his league in a baseball movie. Bottom-line: rent it first.
