Consensus: Pleasant to a fault, Million Dollar Arm is a middle-of-the-plate pitch that coasts on Jon Hamm's considerable charm without adding any truly original curves to Disney's inspirational sports formula.

James Berardinelli

Sappy, saccharine, and predictable to the point where it's almost painful.

Million Dollar Arm, based on true events, did a fairly good job of keeping me engaged even though I knew exactly where it was going every step of the way.

Million Dollar Arm is presented in a largely predictable package aimed at tugging on the heartstrings. It takes a while, but it manages to get there in the end.

JB is not the wisest of men and Million Dollar Arm makes no bones about him being a character in need of an upward arc. Even so, the movie never sacrifices the other characters as mere handmaidens to his growth.

Million Dollar Arm is cute, cloying, simplistic, borderline offensive ... and thoroughly effective.

A well-made, enjoyably predictable, by-the-numbers sports drama.
