Fielder's Choice- Perfect Game ****
7 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie will definitely tug at your heart despite the fact that we see familiar themes.

An 8 year old who is developmentally challenged is left with his uncle (Chad Lowe) for a weekend by the boy's mother (Lowe's sister) in the film. Lowe works in advertising and is working on a big job. Tragedy strikes when the boy's mother is killed in an auto accident during that fateful weekend and Lowe finds himself as a father.

The child gives a heart wrenching performance. You know that the uncle can't cope and eventually gives the child to another relative. The expression on the child's face will forever live with you, when he is rejected by the uncle.

This is basically a story of commitment and reshaping your priorities in life.

George Segal, looking much older and heavier now, has a small role, but in the end, his miserable attitude is well worth recording as the boss who felt Lowe did the right thing by giving up the lad.

The ending is golden. This Larry Levinson production is **** all the way.
