The Rookie – Movie Review

The RookieThe Rookie

This is one of my all-time favorite sports movies.  It is based on the true story of Jimmy Morris, played by Dennis Quaid who gets a second chance at a major league baseball career.  When he was younger he injured his shoulder and had to quit baseball.  Flash forward to twenty years later when he is married with three kids.  He coaches a high school baseball team and the team noticed that he was pitching at major league speeds and they issued him a challange:  if they win district he has to try out for a major league team.  You’ll have to see the movie to see what happens next. 

This movie weaves in themes of second chances, importance of family and friends, the joy of baseball, not giving up, and following your dreams, into one fantastic movie.   This is a must see movie for everyone!

    Dennis Quaid brings out a lot of great moments in the movie. The Rookie is shot through with star-spangled sentiment, but its light touch and “true story” origins combine to make it feelgood fun even for schmaltz-phobic Brits.
