Million Dollar Arm (2014, Gillespie) S: Hamm, Bell, Paxton, Arkin

American baseball agent J.B. Bernstein, whose career has been overshadowed by local sports competitors, is inspired to stage a reality sports series in India in an attempt to attract proficient cricket players. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House, with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life.

It feels like I just watched the whole movie by watching that trailer.

Not a prequel to the Six Million Dollar Man = FAIL!

I saw this tonight, it's a solid movie. Yes the trailer is pretty much a 3 minute version of the movie, but that doesn't make it bad. There are few decent laughs, I was a little shocked at the amount of casual drinking going on in a PG movie. Jon Hamm is Jon Hamm, Alan Arkin literally sleeps through 95% of his performance. The script by Tom McCarthy was one of the stronger aspects, it strikes a good balance between the baseball and romantic story lines.

I liked it, thought it was a fun story. The assistant who was all "Mr. JB" was hilarious.
