I haven't enjoyed very many sports movies over the last few years. And when you target baseball as the sport, my expectations were even less cause baseball is a fairly boring sport to showcase in a movie. But this movie is much more than just about baseball, it is a movie about business ideas and going against the norm, to prove something. Jonah Hill would never have been my choice for the role of Peter Brand, but after seeing the movie, he does a decent job. This movie was interesting to watch, and may not be the best the movie of the year by any means, but is worth watching once.

While baseball does figure in the the whole scheme of things, this is not so much a sports film as a drama that happens to feature baseball. Jonah Hill can pull off drama, Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman are likewise well cast and the story is a great watch even for people who hate baseball.

An Inside Look at Baseball

Moneyball is the second film from director Bennett Miller (who also directed Capote and most recently Foxcatcher). Miller specializes in bringing stories to the public that most people would not know about otherwise. Moneyball displays a fine cast, headlined by Brad Pitt (who also produces the film). Pitt's performance is strong but I find that he gets too much screen time considering the talent of the rest of the cast. Jonah Hill showed in this movie that he is not just comedic actor and received the first of his two current Oscar nominations. What makes Hill's portrayal even more impressive that his character was not actually a real person but a composition of several real people who did not want their names mentioned in the film. Philip Seymour Hoffman is underused as well as Robin Wri...

"Just enjoy the show".

Casey Beane: "Just enjoy the show". Moneyball is about 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 director of this movie (Bennett Miller) who also did Capote and his upcoming movie called Foxcatcher. Well the director did more then a great job or a fantastic job, this guy is a master class of directing and I mean that a lot. Brad Pitt,Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman acting in the film was superb, the writing was well written and the characters actually feel like really people and not movie characters and you got to give the writers and the director respect for that....

Moneyball

The general Manager of the Oakland A's Billy Beane tries to set up a good team after the team has lost their three best players. Problem is: The A's are low on money. For this task he hires a man, who thinks that he can find a team on a modest budget, with only using computer statistics...

Except of other baseball-movies, you don't have to know the rules of baseball in this one. The movie focuses more on the part of the club behind the baseball field. Good idea!
The script of the movie is very good. The only problem is, that it is too long´. Sometimes the dialogues are just so long you start to think, what were they actually talking about. Another point is that some characters vanish through the movie. And the acting parts were not equal to each other, in the supporting roles, Philip...
