Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” Opens Friday ~ Trailer

Disney Million Dollar Arm

Disney’s new movie “Million Dollar Arm” is slated to open in theatres this Friday, May 16th.  The film looks both engaging and heartwarming, and as a parent who appreciates PG-rated movies being produced, I definitely plan on my family seeing it.

Based on a true story, the film premise is as follows:

Sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace.

Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.”

With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball.  Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train.

While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.
