Editorial Reviews

From the director of The Sandlot comes the true story of an underdog coach and the team that must defend their legacy against insurmountable odds. In the small town of Norway, Iowa, the high school baseball team, led by legendary Coach Jim Van Scoyoc (Powers Boothe, TV's "Deadwood"), has won 19 State Championships. But the small town heroes are dealt a series of unexpected blows that threaten to rob them of their 20th championship win. When talk of a school merger gets serious and Coach Scoyoc is fired, then replaced by his 24-year-old assistant, Kent Stock (Sean Astin, Rudy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy), failure seems inevitable. Tom Arnold, Rachael Leigh Cook and Michael Angarano join an excellent ensemble cast in this inspirational family gem.

After seeing an interview with Sean Astin, (who plays the lead role in the film "The final season"), I decided to take my 10 & 13 year old children to see his new movie. Due to it's limited release, we had to drive 90 minutes to the next city to see it, but it was well worth the drive and the price of tickets. This is an enjoyable film! This is a good stoy! (and I don't even like baseball!) In a nutshell: big-town, messed-up kid arrives in small town w/ strong family values, and messed-up kid (and his prodigal dad) find the real value in family and community. All this set against a memorable backdrop of the Midwest, and a love of baseball. My favorite scene: shows the team warming up to the tune of an orchestra, plays each member of the team as a dancer in an intricate ballet, and the 'snap' of the ball into the player's mitt as part of the percussive instruments in the orchestra: Bravo!

The Final Season is definitely worth your time. This true story plays out in America's heartland and represents a huge cross section of rural America.

The Final Season reveals a truth not everyone seems to understand: its not all in the winning its how you play the game. Character, achievement and honest completion actually carry greater value than putting together a winning record.

The Norway baseball team may meet their collective demise but they prove sportsmanship and team achievement ensure their place in history. Join the team and catch the inspiration to play with all you've got!

Although I live near Washington D.C. now, I was raised in the Midwest and went to a rural farm community high school in Piasa, Illinois. Perhaps that helped me identify with this movie about Norway, Iowa, but if anyone can't identify with it on some level then they are missing something. I was lucky enough to play on a football team that won three championships. Considering we didn't have half the students of most the schools we played I know only to well the lesson "The Final Season" teaches about sports. If we didn't have students bused in from three small towns and we weren't so far from the large schools we probably would have been absorbed as well. Along with it's valuable lesson about what baseball means to these small towns, it teaches about how crowding students into larger schools doesn't make them smarter or better adjusted students, quite the contrary, and the sooner the public education system learns that the better. This movie has a great story, wonderful cast, and exceptional camera work. I highly recommend it. I haven't seen a sports movie inspire me this much since "Hoosiers". Excellent DVD quality with great replayability.

It's great to add this DVD to my collection. Last October I had the chance to see the movie twice about this true story of an Iowa High School baseball team that won 20 state championships with its legendary coach. The movie covers how Norway High School entered its final year as a school before merging with Madison High School in the early 1990s.The triumph..the bitterness...all the emotion is covered in this 119 minute movie. If you like your baseball stories that are true and realistic, then don't miss the Final Season with Sean Astin and Powers Boothe!
By the way if you look realy closely a very good friend of mine Mike Doocy is one of the sports reporters featured in the movie. He is now the sports director for the FOX affiliate in Dallas! Another real reason to enjoy this movie!

I stumbled upon this movie at the movie theater by accident, and I have to say, it was just marvelous! It portrays a wholesome family values message and it shows the real effects of consolidating large schools. I have to say, watch it with your children and watch it again! It is absolutely fantastic.

This is one of the best baseball movies I have ever seen. It is not only very inspirational but heartwarming and asks a very personal question that we must all answer-"what do you want to be remembered for."

I recommend that all who love baseball or don't should see this movie!

This movie is a must buy for your library. I am originally from this town and now live in Texas. Needless to say I am proud of the baseball heritage; but most of all I'm proud of the family unit that this town portrays. It's a great gift idea.
