I thought the movie had too many real baseball clips and too many poignant looks from Brad Pitt. Billie Beane as portrayed really wasn't a very nice guy and didn't seem to care much about the game of baseball. (Or about anything or anyone except his daughter). I found him annoying. He also fired too many people in this film. I really didn't care what happened to him and even cheered against him. On a bright note, Scott Hatteburg the baseball player was well played and the only positive characterization of a baseball player. Ugh.
