Editorial Reviews

Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur “Murph” Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher’s arm. However, Mickey’s parents are reluctant to allow him to join the team because he has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey’s parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn’t realize just how much his new recruit will help the team’s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on the novel “The Legend 0f Mickey Tussler” by Frank Nappi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for your family's next movie night! January 31, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I first heard about this movie, I couldn't wait to watch it for family night. I wasn't disappointed.

"A Mile in His Shoes" stars Dean Cain as a minor league baseball coach named nicknamed "Murph." Murph enjoys his job, but can't quite shake the losing streak his team has been experiencing lately. When Murph goes in search of a possible recruit, he accidentally runs his car off the road and becomes stranded on a country highway. A young man named Mickey offers him the use of his family's phone. Murph takes Mickey up on his offer, and that's when Murph discovers something amazing - Mickey's pitching arm could be just the thing needed to end Murph's team's losing streak.

There's only one problem - Mickey has Asperger's Syndrome (a form of Autism), and as such, his parents (especially his dad) are very protective of him. Can Murph convince Mickey's parents to allow their son the chance of a lifetime? And if Mickey's parents do agree, how will Mickey fit in with the rest of the team? How will he adapt to life away from his family's farm - the only life he's ever known?

This movie has wonderful discussion points including the topics of faith, loyalty, friendship, never giving up, envy, mistreatment of others because they are different, grief, worry, and telling the truth.

A word of caution to those with young children: there is a brief scene at a party where Mickey is injured that will scare younger viewers.

Beautiful scenery, an inspiring story line based on a true story, and a well-rounded family movie make this a must-see. I highly recommend adding it to your list for your family's next movie night! I have added this movie to my list of mom-approved movies on my wordpress blog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Film - Truly a Surprise! January 19, 2012
Format:DVD
Length: 2:23 Mins
Reviewed by KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Sam C. When I was first sitting down to watch this, I thought "Oh please, don't be as bad as I think it's going to be!" But that was unfair because, first of all I didn't know anything about it, and second of all it really is a very good movie.

The film is about an autistic farm boy who has Asperger's syndrome, and he likes to feed his pigs by throwing apples into a tub that is nailed sideways to a tree so his pigs can eat smashed apples. A baseball coach sees him doing that, so he has the kid try it with a real baseball and the kid throws the ball so hard that it goes straight through the tub.

The baseball coach realizes that this kid is a natural pitcher, so he recruits the kid whose name is Mickey.
Much of the movie is about his troubles communicating with the world outside the farm, functioning in society.
Luke Schroder played Mickey in this, and I was very surprised when I went onto IMDB.com to find that there was really nothing on him. Then I realized that this movie was filmed just last year (2011), so this was probably his first film. But, I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that he is going to be a gigantic star. He was so incredibly wonderful in this role. He doesn't have much to his credit yet, but he will.

I liked the way that they showed things through Mickey's eyes. I don't have Asperger's, but they showed it in a way that gave you a better idea of what it's like to have Asperger's, and look around and comprehend what's happening. I think that was very well done.

I'd have to say that the age range is pretty much 8 to 12 or even older. Very small kids might not like it because there's a lot of talkig, although some of the stuff that Mickey says is very funny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story April 5, 2012
Format:DVD
While this movie had a really good story, the acting wasn't very good. I think younger boys (maybe 8-11) would enjoy this, because they wouldn't really care about the acting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute movie- I'm not a sports fan January 18, 2012
Format:DVD
I'm not one to watch and like sports related movies but "A Mile in His Shoes" really touched my heart. it's about a baseball team that is struggling to make it, when the coach is asked to travel somewhere to recruit a new player he has some car issues and stops at a farm. There he meets this boy with an amazing arm. His parents are reluctant to let him go join this team because he has aspergers. They don't want to see him get hurt like he had been all his live. He does join and the team becomes the talk of the State.
While watching this movie, I kept hoping that Mickey wont get hurt or picked on. I found myself cheering him on and crying when his teammate were so supportive of his aspergers.
I don't know much about aspergers, so I can't say if the actor was believable or not. But I can say Luke Schroder made his character lovable.
This movie will make you laugh, cry, get mad and smile. This is one we will be keeping on our shelves for a long time. I can't wait to watch it with my kids. The only thing I could have done without was the country music. But that's just a personal preference, I know a lot of people who would love it.
I would totally recommend this movie for all ages. It's clean, fun and inspiring.
