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]
2 of 4

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

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
