Worth Watching - June 28: Baseball Movie The Perfect Game
Remarkably there's yet another heartwarming sports movie due out by the end of the summer, this one called The Perfect Game. Based on a true story, the film tells the story of a group of boys from Monterrey, Mexico who become the first non-US team to win the Little League World Series. Clifton Collins Jr. and Cheech Marin star in the film. This reminds me of movies from my childhood like The Sandlot or Rookie of the Year, but unfortunately it doesn't even look half as good as those two. Either way, some kids of this generation might come to attach to this as their big sports movie, so I'll give it a chance. Plus any movie with a heartwarming story about baseball always captures my interest, even if it's not the best.
