Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), general manager of the Oakland A's, one day has an epiphany: Baseball's conventional wisdom is all wrong. Faced with a tight budget, Beane must reinvent his team by outsmarting the richer ball clubs. Joining forces with Ivy League graduate Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), Beane prepares to challenge old-school traditions. He recruits bargain-bin players whom the scouts have labeled as flawed, but have game-winning potential. Based on the book by Michael Lewis.

    I enjoyed this movie because I like sports and found it interesting. I wouldn't say it's the greatest movie I've ever seen, but it was alright. I liked Brad Pitt and have heard many talk about the book, and Jonah Hill was funny. It's worth seeing at least once with the family.

    Fantastic movie! If you watch this movie and expect to see a lot of baseball action, you ain't going to get it. It is more of the behind the scenes operations of a baseball team.. This true story is centered around the general manager Billy Bean of the Oakland A's and how he changed how put together a great team on a small budget by thinking differently. Jonah Hill plays his sidekick in all of it and does a fantastic job, it was more of a serious role for him that showed his acting chops. The movie is very dialogue driven and it is great. The same guy that wrote "The Social Network" also worked on this film. In my opinion this was Brad Pitt's best acting he has ever done. Just a great movie, with a great script, actors and director. Even if you do not like baseball you will enjoy this.

    The language in this movie is kind of weird. There isn't a lot but when they do curse they use really strong curse words. Other than the language it was a pretty clean movie. Worth seeing and as one of the best baseball movies ever made.

    This is a baseball movie that’s really not about baseball. It’s the (fairly recent) true story about the general manager of the Oakland A’s who, when forced to rebuild his team with very little budget, hired a recently graduated Yale economist (actually the real economist was from Harvard, but for whatever reason the makers of this film decided he would be from Yale (?)). This young man applied the science of economics to baseball, came up with a method of building a team that flew in the face of the way they had always done it in the past, and gave the A’s a far better season than anyone was expecting. There’s actually very little baseball shown in the film. It almost all takes place in the behind-closed-door management meetings. It’s a very interesting story, and almost made me want to pay attention to the Oakland A’s. It’s not super dramatic or gripping or anything, so I was puzzled when it got an Oscar nomination for best picture and when Brad Pitt got a nomination for best actor. Still, it’s very watchable, especially if you like economics and well-written dialogue.

    Beware of the language however. There's some pretty strong language for a PG-13 film here, including two f-words.

    This show was worth your time if you are a sports fan. You don't even have to be a baseball fan specifically to appreciate this film.

    There was more swearing than I suspected but luckily they kept it within the PG-13 range. The story line is appropriate for 13 but the language may be a little strong for some 13 year olds.

    It's worth your time though.

    It is a good movie, but I wasn't as crazy over it some have been. It is worth seeing but only once.

    As an economist, I was expecting to like this movie - I wasn't expecting for my wife to also like this movie. It's a great tale of doing great things with limited constraints and how both math and baseball can be "romantic."

    Awesome movie, great life story and message. I would go see it again and probably purchase it. Brad Pitt did a really good job, except for the "F" words that were definitely not necessary.

    ages 12+ | Worth Your Time

    Loved the movie. The two "F" words could be left out however.

  • No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    Excellent movie. Everyone in the family enjoyed it.

  • No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    One of the best baseball movies ever. A few language issues, but very well constructed. A fascinating insight into the modern era of big league baseball.

  • ages 12+ | Worth Your Time

    Good story telling and good acting. Interesting. Two F words make it a definite PG-13. Phil Hoffman's looking old and pudgy.

    Two uses of the f-word.

  • ages 12+ | Not Worth Your Time

    The story lagged and the ending, although maybe accurate to history was a big let down. Come on Hollywood, you don't worry about the truth on so many things, why bother here. you could have made the story so much more fun.

  • ages 13+ | Worth Your Time

    My husband and I both enjoyed this. It's humorous and mentally engaging. The storyline is great and it is well acted. Too bad a few swear words were put in since they were completely unnecessary.

  • ages 13+ | Worth Your Time

    It seems the obligatory, and now PG-13 popular "F-Word",has made it twice into an otherwise "Four Star" movie. I give it 3 1/2 because of this nonsense.

  • ages 13+ | Worth Your Time

    2 F-words
