Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Young and old baseball fans -- and even many non-fans -- will enjoy this feel-good family comedy. It features a number of ballpark scenes as well as cameos from several Major League players, including Ken Griffey Jr. and Randy Johnson, who were both with the Seattle Mariners when the film was made.

A few standout comic moments: the team helps Billy with his math homework; Billy and his friends step onto the field at the Metrodome; Billy investigates his players' hotel-room shenanigans and ends up throwing water balloons with them. Some parts may seem a bit syrupy to adults and older kids -- and Billy's story, of course, requires some major suspension of disbelief -- but overall it's an enjoyable movie with both funny and tender moments.
