Consensus: Director Bennett Miller, along with Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, take a niche subject and turn it into a sharp, funny, and touching portrait worthy of baseball lore.

Moneyball is a winner, one of the freshest and smartest sports movies in years.

One of the most soulful of baseball movies -- it confronts the anguish of a very tough game.

'Moneyball' is right on the money, and hilarious. It's humor consists of uniformly understated, impeccably timed deadpan throwaways that come in under the radar and leave the audience roaring.

The real protagonist of Moneyball, however, is Beane himself, played with great charisma by Brad Pitt.

By keeping it all low-key, with the big moment followed by reflection rather than celebration, Moneyball avoids becoming a self-congratulatory fairy tale.

It is, in fact, quite a good movie. I don't think it is entirely subversive to suggest that it might have been a little bit better.

It seems odd that a movie based on a non-fiction book that is very heavy on statistics and number crunching could be an enjoyable, engrossing, and wonderful… More
