3 of 4

“..the premise sounds like an after-school special crossed with a "Bad News Bears" reboot, but "Home Run" strives for more than studio formulas, allowing the morality play to stand on its own merit..”
by Sean O'Connell [Washington Post]
“..the message overwhelms the medium..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
Review rate : C+

“..director Boyd weaves the preaching - which includes testimonials from actual recovering addicts - into the story, and thankfully avoids overly emotional hallelujah moments. For what it is, "Home Run" is a solid hit..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
