Based on a true story, Moneyball is a movie for anybody who has ever dreamed of taking on the system. Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A's and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball's conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As an example of smarter-than-average Hollywood fare - and a sly dig at modern sporting politics - 'Moneyball' has all the key bases covered."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"[Pitt] provides ballast and a swaggering humor to a movie that, too often, strives to be The Social Network of baseball movies."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Australia may not exactly be mad for the game, but I suspect - I hope - that the latest film from Bennett Miller (Capote) will inspire a few more people to become immersed in it."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Moneyball isn't just a great baseball movie; it's a great movie about baseball - and there's a difference."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"With its wonderful performances and well-written script, "Moneyball" is one of the better sports movies of recent years."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"One of the most soulful of baseball movies -- it confronts the anguish of a very tough game."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Pitt, who has a producing credit, is not the sole reason this tremendous -- yet intimate -- sports tale soars over the fences. The bench is deep. And the script has a powerful but finessed swing."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A well-written and incredibly smart film about baseball."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"A thinking person's baseball movie."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Moneyball is more interesting than your typical sports drama thanks to the direction. Bennett Miller takes a rather grey, cement-enshrouded setting and gives it a little pizzazz."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"The real protagonist of Moneyball, however, is Beane himself, played with great charisma by Brad Pitt."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Moneyball turns an unlikely subject interesting, making a professional sport the nexus where past and future collide."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The film tries to coast on its charm without asking much of its audience."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Great performances, exciting moments, and creative cinematography make Moneyball a home run for both baseball and movie fans."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"The end result mirrors the actual season Moneyball depicts, a memorable run but a loss in the final game played."
‑ Erick Weber, NECN
