Typical standard moralistic comedy. All ends (too) well.
31 October 1998 | by cashimorSee all my reviews

I think there are many movies made like this, probably aimed at some idea what children would like, but which will educate them as well. Money is indeed not everything, but baseball isn't

either. Most of the characters are too stereotyped to be funny. Too many movies of this kind have been made already, and I had at least hoped for some unique aspects. However, if this is the first of this kind you will see, you could be in for a great time.
