Million Dollar Arm

This genial, family-friendly, Disney-produced sports drama doesn't deviate very far from the inspirational formula laid out by Invincible, Remember the Titans, Miracle and countless others. But the curious story and smart casting make for a very likable outing. Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") plays a typical money-hungry LA sports agent who comes up with a last-ditch effort to save his career: He'll sponsor a fast-pitch competition in India to recruit the world's first India baseball player. What he ends up with is a couple of naive kids whose first trip to America results in a lot of culture shock. This one's less about teamwork and hard work and more about friendship and personal responsibility. And damned if it doesn't actually "feel good." 124 minutes PG.
