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]

“.."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]
