While the Millers have a physical presence, they're hardly actors. In fact, it's often difficult to tell them apart, although one of them is missing a tooth and takes off his shirt a lot.

Touching Home is stronger when it focuses on the small-town life than when it steps on the ball diamond. The decent cast elevates it to a tolerable level.
