Set against the backdrop of America’s favorite pastime, this must-own baseball drama stars Jon Hamm (“Mad Men,” “The Town,” “Bridesmaids”) as a sports agent who sets out in search of the next great major league baseball pitcher and ends up discovering the true value of teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

I was fortunate enough to receive Million Dollar Arm to provide a review. Now let me get this right out in the open first…I am not a baseball fan, so I went in to this film thinking that I may be bored out of mind but was seriously wrong! In fact, there really isn’t a lot of actual baseball in film. I was really surprised out how much I really enjoyed this film.
It is a heartwarming story, and one that is a great family feel-good movie. Jon Hamm is great as a fast-talking Sports agent and Suraj Sharma and Madhur Mittal are awesome in this film and are definitely two stars on the rise.
Definitely give this one a go, you won’t regret it.
