REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..like JB's persona, Million Dollar Arm is flawed, but also slickly presented and likable..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..fatally mild, slow and factory-made, "Million Dollar Arm'' belongs somewhere less competitive than the multiplex..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..blithely colonialist, though basically good-hearted. Hamm has charm, Bell adds bite and the whole thing passes muster despite its offenses..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2 of 4

“..a simple sports movie that is pleasing enough yet all-too forgettable. But there's that terrific soundtrack and watching Jon Hamm for two hours is hardly a waste of anybody's time..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
3 of 5

“.."Million Dollar Arm" obviously means well. It's probably a cliche to describe a sports movie winning, but in this context that means it fits right in..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“.."Million Dollar Arm" never focuses on anything but its calculated marketing and formulaic plot..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
