The movie was entertaining. I am not sure how much a non baseball fan would enjoy the story but for myself (big baseball fan) I would have to say the movie was well done. Brad Pitt hit a homerun with his performance; he may even get an Oscar nod for the part. The story and direction were on par as well. I know some folks desire to debate the accuracy of sabermetrics but all in all its just a movie and it added some excitement to the premise. Worth a view and the couple hours invested. Enjoyable experience.
