Wow! I’m surprised I enjoyed this movie so much. For some unknown reason I had tears running down my face most of the 2 hours; maybe because we have so many good Mexican friends in Mexico and I know they don’t have a lot. By our standards they’re considered poor, probably not so much by their standards because their family is important and it sustains them, at least in the beginning. It’s a true story and maybe that’s what I like so much about it
This movie really touched me. Thumbs up and 4 stars. Please see it for no other reason than it’s just a really good wholesome movie. Yes, they’re still around.
The relation between this movie and a baseball blog? Oh, I don’t know. How about Kevin Costner and “Bull Durham” or Costner and “For love of the Game” Upside of Anger, Field of Dreams, or even “Tin Cup”, which isn’t about baseball but you get the idea. He’s just the ultimate sports type movie guy, IMHO, of course.
The film’s inspirational and will put you in a good mood at least for the rest of the day and maybe even until baseball season get’s going. And what could be better than that? Go see the movie :))
