Editorial Reviews

From the director of Angels in the Outfield comes the incredible true story of the underdog foreign Little League team who inspired two nations. Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek) heads an all-star line-up of some of Hollywood’s brightest young stars as Cesar, who returns to his native Monterey, Mexico after his major league career is cut short. Moises Arias (Hannah Montana), Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Ryan Ochoa (iCarly) costar as impoverished baseball-loving kids who recruit him to coach their rag-tag team. Together, they beat the odds and overcome hardships and bigotry to compete in the 1957 Little League World Series. Screen favorites Cheech Marin (Spy Kids), Lou Gossett Jr. (Iron Eagle), Bruce McGill (Animal House), Emilie de Ravin (Lost) and David Koechner (Anchorman) are featured in this uplifting story in the winning tradition of Hoosiers that Boxoffice magazine cheered as "inspiring, richly entertaining, heartfelt…a perfect family movie."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Game is a Winner! March 4, 2009
I was privileged to see this in preview before its scheduled theatre release date in August of 2008. Unfortunately, it never made it to theatres, but is Well worth the purchase. It is a heartwarming, beautiful movie with a message that is serious, but not serious enough to take anything away from the good humor of this film based on a true story that deserves to be retold for ages to come. Cheech Marin and Clifton Collins, Jr. (Gonzales-Gonzalez) give awe-inspiring performances, and a number of timely issues like women in sports reporting, racism, prejudice, and unfortunately stereotypical white baseball players from the 50's (sad-to-say, from my childhood home team of the St. Louis Cardinals) who give the only vulgar reference, to an athletic supporter, in the entire movie. Truly gives you something to cheer about. A MUST-SEE!

Format:DVD
"They weigh 35 pounds less and are about 6 inches shorter, but in every other way they are like the American kids." The unbelievable true story about a little league team from Mexico with dreams of playing in the little league world series. The movie starts with Cesar (Collins Jr.) being realeased from the St. Louis Cardinals and moving back to Mexico. A group of kids who love baseball recruit him to be thier coach. When they are finally approved to get a official little league team thier journey begins. This is a fantastic movie. While I'm sure liberties were taken, this is a movie so unbelievable that it if weren't true it would be way too cheesy to be good. As it is though, this movie is a little hokey in some parts, but the fact that it's true makes it OK. For those that know the story behind this it will be very enjoyable to you. For those that don't I won't give anything away but do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Overall, a very touching baseball movie that is good for the whole family. A real like "Sandlot". I really like it, but I also am a sucker for sports movies. I give it an A-.

Would I watch again? - I think I would

-----------------

Have you ever had a dream or vision that is almost impossible to achieve? In the film "The Perfect Game," a rag tag gang of boys from a rural poor area of Monterey, Mexico had a dream of playing Little League Baseball in America. Under their circumstances, you could call that dream impossible, but it is based on a true story in the 1950's.

The main characters of this film are Angel Macias, the gutsy talented pitcher of the Monterey Little League team, and the straight-talking coach Cesar, who gives the team inspiration, courage, and lots of laps (hard work!).

Angel became miserable once his older brother died and his father deserted him while grieving for the dead brother. Angel ran away from home when he heard his father saying he would never be like his older brother. He soon recovered his good spirit when he found a baseball that was the property of the St. Louis Cardinals team. Each one of his friends was enraptured and in awe as they marveled at the real baseball (A ball was a big find in their village. They were so poor that they used grass, yarn, and twigs to make a baseball).

The budding team was still in need of a coach though, so Angel set out to find one. While practicing his skills, he woke up a man having his siesta. His name was Cesar who worked at the same steel plant as Angel's father, and he claimed that he was the coach of the St. Louis Cardinals. With disheveled hair and dirty, sweaty clothes, Cesar did not look like a coach at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD TRUE STORY FLICK March 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
THE PERFECT GAME

The Perfect Game is very close to being a perfect movie, and it just may be for this type of film. This movie is based on a book by W. William Winokur which is a true story. The story is about the little league championship tournament of 1957. It is one of those feel good family flicks but it should be considering who the film is about. There are some very grown up themes and events in the movie which I will get to later on.

The film follows Cesar Faz after he loses his job as a janitor for the MLB team St. Louis Cardinals. He moves back to Monterrey Mexico where the local kids care only for baseball. When they find out he has a connection to a famous pro team they lath on to him. With the help of a local priest the boys convince him to become their coach. They eventually try out to become an official little league team and when they do they go for it all.

This is a great flick that shows how passion for something no matter what the odds can lead you on to something great. These kids beat the top team from Mexico and went on to beat the U.S. teams as well. All of this leads them to the championship and a now legendary and only championship perfect game. They also come across racism and how the boys handle it is great, but they face all kinds of hardships on and off the field.

Clifton Collins Jr. is excellent in this film and really is the character he portrays, from the pain and embarrassment he starts with all the way to the joy he feels because of these boys. Cheech Marin also is very good here and his chemistry with the kids seems to very genuine. Speaking of the kids every child on this film does very well, hard to do with child actors. The entire film was very well acted, written and directed in my opinion.
