Fantastic Movie with good message on addiction

Not a very preachy movie. Good discussion on addiction. It is a Christian focused movie. The sad thing is that nowadays it seems if someone discovers "Christianity" in a movie it almost like what the "explicit" or "for mature audiences" only labels were supposed to do - keep people away. I enjoy watching eastern philosophy, Hindu, whatever that has a good message. It shows we all struggle and search for ways to overcome. How the influence of others can change us for the better. Sure this movie shows how Christianity can influence us for the better but also shows how understanding that others need us to become better pushes us to become that better person. Addiction can be very difficult and lonely as you spiral out of control. The character in the movie has certain capital he can expend being a famous baseball player allows him to "pay his way" out of several situations but it does show how others with addiction can have their complete lives destroyed.

A touch of baseball ruining by a lot of religion

Suffice to say, this is a simple 'Doc Hollywood' style movie about a major league baseball star coming back to his hometown to make amends for his errant ways by coaching the local little league team. His addiction to alcohol, anger management issues and lack of responsibility make him virtually unemployable...so far, so predictable.

But, I have no problem with a simple movie about a guy making amends and I was happy to be wafted along the easy path of him falling in love with his childhood sweetheart, small town charm and coaching kids. I would have been happy to see him, maybe, rediscover his baseball through coaching and then following a proper AA program and getting clean. I don't mind a bit of honest predictability.

What I do object to is this, essentially, being a Christian propaganda film about how discovering Jesus can solve all your problems. You don't need a God, or even a belief system, to follow AA. Jesus will not help with his anger...or his doucebag-ness. In the end I gave up. This film is rubbish. Which is a shame as some of the (adult) actors are pretty good. It's well shot and lit. But this is a religious pamphlet masquerading as a movie. AVOID,

Actually quite good

The movie is real and not afraid to touch on some very disturbing themes like family abuse, alcoholism and second chances.

Although at moments it becomes predictable, it is not sugar coated, characters are full of shortcomings, but likable. By the end, you want them to succeed and get a new chance in life.

Production and cast is more like TV movie, but you will get your hour and a half of ups and downs and some happy endings.

Perfect portrait of life in small American mid West town and why some strive to get away as fast as possible and some find they true happiness in a place they were born and raised.

Not really a family movie.
