Moneyball surprised me. A behind the scenes baseball movie based on actual events had all the elements for a boring movie. But, Brad Pitt was in it so thought I would give it a shot. Turned out to be a great movie with drama, tension, and some humor. Like most come-from-behind movies, Moneyball draws you into the middle of the drama and has you rooting for the Home Team by the end. Brad Pitt, as usual, did a great job, Jonah Hill – normally known for silly comedies – also did a great job as the statistician. There are enough personalities and conflicting personalities to keep this interesting from start to finish.
I highly recommend this movie for men and women.
My wife enjoyed the movie (probably because of Brad Pitt)… and also recommends it for the women out there. Although a sports movie, which she doesn’t always enjoy, this movie had enough going on that even she got pulled in.
For non-sports fans that see this movie… how did you like it?
