More Corn than Capra
26 October 2011 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This family themed baseball story about a minor league pitcher with Aspergers syndrome is so heartfelt it hurts. The main characters are all likable and the villains are villainous.

The story has several "too sweet to be true" moments but overall it's fun to watch and you can't help but feel good doing so. It does get cornier than Capra ever did in spots but still...

It's interesting to see Dean Cain playing parts where he could have a grown son and his role choices indicate that he's aware of his appeal among the wholesome set.

Enjoy the good parts, ignore the bad and if it annoys you then watch something else.

This is based on a true story.
