The last chance.

The final season. I love it, how this movie tells the story of a small town and the way they fight for there school that holds the town together. A young man is sent to his grandparents because his dad doses not know what to with his him. The world view message is about father son relationship, doing something with your life, and the in portends of having a group of people working together to save and accomplish a big goal. This movie has langue, smoking, and tock about alcohol but it is all over looked by the advents that happen. I loved it and I think your family will to.

A Fantastic Baseball Movie

The Final Season is a great movie about a boy who had lost his mom and and needed to get a hobby. He found a baseball coach in his new school and he played and it turned out to change his life. The boy was very disrespectful to his dad but staying with his grandparents theaches him the ways of life. I think this movie has good worlveiw and good role models. It has smoking, a little violence, and cussing but i think this a very good movie and reccomend you watch it.

The Best Movie Review Ever!

The Final Season is funny, exciting, and has a great message. This movie is based on a true story about baseball, community, family, respect, hope, and most importantly, learning how to be a team and working together to achieve your goals. Though this movie has some smoking, cussing, and references to drinking, I believe that it is a good family film and has many good messages that everyone should hear.

America to the core

The Final Season, is a good replica of small-town America and the unique traits little towns like Norway are home to. Norway is home to a thriving passion for baseball. Mitch, a young boy caught up in the grief of losing his mother, is sent by his father to Norway in hopes for him to get back on the right track. He joins the the team on thier journey to hopefully win their 20th and final season due to a merger placed to combine this small school into a bigger school and ruin thier record. The story was heartwarming, passionate, and had good redemtive messages with a great ending!

The final season

The Final season is a very good and uplifting movie about boy named mitch who lost his mom and that is living with his grandparents. Mitch's grandma told him to get a hobbie,so he goes to a small town school in Norway and gets on the baseball team. The Norway baseball team is going for their 20th championship trophy. This is one of the best movies i have seen i a long time and I would encourage you and your family to watch this movie.

Good Movie

Final Season is a good movie for families to watch. It contains some swearing and smoking. I think the world view is a team trying to make it to State Championships before their school is closed and to maybe get them to change their minds about closing the school. One of the messages in this movie is you can accomplish anything if you work together as a team and work well as a team.

Baseball Meets Family Values

Final season has many awesome messages in it and is a great family movie. This movie is about a dad movie his son to his grandparent’s house. While he is at his grandparent house they tell him to get a hobby and he plays for the Norway baseball team. During this time playing on Norway’s baseball team and staying with this grandparent he learns to have respect for his dad and all adults. As I said before there are many awesome messages and some of these are to have respect for adults, learning to get along with your family, learning to do good thing with your life, and being able to come together as a small community and achieve big goals. This movie also has lots of good role model, and a little bit of bad language. This movie is a fun movie for the whole family so grab your family and your popcorn and watch it.

A Baseball-lovers movie!

"The Final Season" tells the legendary story of how a small town team, against all odds, can go big even whenn no one believes in them. This movie shows that not always 'bigger is better,' especially when your perseverence is greater than anyone elses! It also goes a long way in telling you that one man doesn't make a team, but a group working in hamory is far more productive (considering its a team sport). The content in this movie contains some violence, smoking (not promoting it), and some drinking; also there is some cussing so watch out for younger crowds watvhing it. I liked the movie because of the redemption in it everyone goes throught in some way, shape or form! All-in-all, "The Final Season," isn't just for baseball-lovers alike, but for the whole family!

Good Movie

This movie was pretty good to me. The worldview didnt exactly jump to me. After thinking, I noticed some messeges about getting a hobby, stop smoking, be a good dad, and be a good son. There was some smoking and cussing. The story was about a very small school that had a high school baseball team that wasnt very popular at first.

Well-acted melodrama with a good message, albeit language and drug problems

Let's face it: Excluding baseball fans, not many people are going to want to see the Final Season. All you have to do is look at its box office total for that. Still, if you decide to rent it, you can expect some great messages about true friendship and respect, along with some great baseball facts. The Final Season is based on a true story about a failing high school baseball team that has one final season to win it all before they are shut down. You can probably guess how it ends, so I won't go into that. The Final Season boasts some great performances and astounding baseball action, along with an A-rate plot. However, there are some problems with the script, as well as some bad pacing. However, this is a great baseball melodrama that baseball fans will love. Content issues: there is a lot of language to report, including a shocking use of the f-word (it's barely audible, but it's there) three s-words, and a ton of mild profanities. In truth, it should've been a PG-13 because of this. Other than the cussing, there is a lot of drug references, a sexual quip, and a scene where teens beat up a teammate who didn't play well enough.

The kids in the theater cheered

There were several children in the theater when I saw the movie. They loved it. There is some strong language but not much and probably a lot less than they hear on television every day. It is a good story about small-town values which may not be understood or appreciated by the more cynical urban types.
