Million Dollar Arm (on DVD)

Million Dollar Arm
[DVD Million]

J.B. Bernstein is a sports agent whose business is going under. While watching cricket on TV he is inspired and comes up with an idea to bring cricket players from India to America and train them to play professional baseball. They hold a contest in India to find the best pitchers and bring the top two to America where they train and tryout in front of scouts for major league baseball. At first they have trouble adjusting to the new environment and also to baseball itself and end up living with JB. This cramps his style as he's not used to being responsible for other people. They grow attached to his neighbor who also takes an interest in them. As they grow more comfortable in America JB also grows in maturity and they become like one big happy family. It's a good movie for baseball fans. It also has moments of comedy, is based on real events and has a feel-good ending. -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Carrie's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
