Editorial Reviews

When 12-year-old Lorenzo doesn’t make the team for the Youth Baseball League, he decides to start his own and he recruits Joey (Matthew Lillard), a washed-up minor leaguer, to be the coach. Now Joey has to shape a ragtag team of kids into champions that can win the Home Run Showdown!

This is a great family movie! Not sure why it didn't get a wider theater release! Story was sweet, the kid actors are incredible! Especially Kyle Thomas, he's a very cute kid and his potrayal is tender and sweet! Very convincing. I will definitely be giving this as a gift this Christmas!!
Highly recommend!

This was a fun family movie that reminds me some of the bad news bears (at least in some ways), but really is a story of determination to overcome adversity not only for the character of Lorenzo, but also for Joey DeLuca. Both have a journey that as a viewer of the movie you get to see and experience and it is through this journey that they grow and learn. The movie was fun, but also had a number of meaningful messages within it that brought out some great conversations within my home after we watched it as a family, and it can do the same for your own family. Good acting and character development throughout, which led to a movie that I am proud to have shared with the family!

I enjoyed the movie,but, i wish they had explaned more of why Michelle was so overprotective over her son.
But, for me, its rated PG-13, there was language not just by some of the adults, but the kids as well. But, with that being said, i did enjoy the movie, but, its in the spirit of Badnews Bears and Mighty Ducks, so, it would be better for older kids.

Beware that this is not a family film per-se like The Sandlot or Goonies. This is more in the vein of Bad News Bears, so if you are easily offended
by foul language, and don't want your kids to hear any, (as if that is possible in this day and age), stay away. As for me, I was surprised at how
realistic this film was in many ways. The adults acted like they are adults, not caricatures, and the lead boy, about 11, was confident in front of
the camera, and an excellent athlete. This also has some political agendas, which as a democrat, I found agreeable, but if you are a conservative
that admires the Tea Party, again, avoid this film.

“Home Run Showdown” displays competent acting, direction and cinematography. It also has a suitable soundtrack, but its lack of focus and originality make it insubstantial. Thematically, its scattershot approach keeps any lesson from being effectively driven home. It even strangely tries to squeeze in a political message about immigration. It is often entertaining but ephemeral. I think younger viewers will enjoy it, but it doesn’t have enough for other members of the family. Some parents will want to pass because of some occasional vulgarities.

Format: DVD
Tale about two baseball playing brother Dean Cain and Matthew Lillard of Summer Catch who each end up coaching rival little league baseball teams. Lillard's team is like The Bad News Bears as they need a coach as they have a boy whose dad is in trouble, a girl who got kicked out of softball, and a big catcher whose mom is afraid to let him play ball.

The three best teams in the league get to go to the Home Run Showdown to catch balls. The boy wants his dad to see him on TV. The brother decide that whoevers team gathers the most balls during the 'derby' will get to own the dad's bar.

Engaging, couple 'love stories'. Nice 'they all lived happily ever after' ending.
