Chuck Murdock is an all American kid living in a sleepy town in Montana. He is the top pitcher of the little league team as well. After taking a tour of a nuclear silo, Chuck decides to quit playing little league until nuclear weapons are disarmed. Boston Celtic Amazing Grace Smith hears about Chuck's exploits, and decides to do the same thing. Amazing then moves to the young boy's town to live. More athletes follow suit as well. The town begins to hate Chuck and his family, and this makes Chuck's father angry. But can one kid's message make the world listen? Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

A real sleeper. This is a great movie!
16 September 1999 | by (Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

I use to go into this little milk store in West Lebanon, NH on my way home from work. They had a display of movies you could rent. Nothing recent or big box office. One night I was so bored I took home a tape called "Amazing Grace and Chuck". I was completely captivated by this film. Maybe because I had no expectations, knew nothing about this film, or I just was in the mood, I found this to be one of the best movies I have ever seen. I can't describe it because, quite frankly, this movie has a ridiculous plot. A little league player decides to give up baseball until all nuclear weapons are destroyed. Famous athletes, the president, all get involved. Rent this movie. If you liked "Tender Mercies", you will like "Amazing Grace and Chuck". Then see "The Boy Who Could Fly".
