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 Warning To Christians April 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a Christian father with 6 childeren, I am constantly searching for edifying media to fill their minds and their extra time. I have been very happy with several of the new and older faith baised films that are on the market. In the back of my mind, I just new that this movement would be hijacked at some point by those trying to make a fast buck. I purchased this movie after reading several reviews and watching the preview.

The basis of the story is very good and very inspiring. They have added several things to the story that would make it appear to be a faith based movie, such as prayers and a bible. In my honest opinion it really doesn't have the heart of a Christian author or director behind the scenes and in my opinion missed the mark for what I am looking for.

WARNING: At one point in the movie they have two former ballplayers, now turned coaches after a collision in an former game arguing. In the course of this disscusssion one of the coaches says what clearly sounds like a swear word and viewers get the point. There is also a very, very, very sexually suggestive party scene in the movie that will leave you with a very sleazy feeling.

As one former review stated the scene where Mickey gets hit is very disturbing to younger viewers and after seeing the scene for my self I did not let my younger children watch the movie. Although all the above scenes are most likely true to life, I'm paying for a dream world I and I want to leave feeling good about what I watched.

I truly feel that this is a good movie as far as the world goes, but it misses the the mark for Christians!
