Editorial Reviews

A down-and-out ex-baseball player, Charlie Jones, needs to meet his community service hours as a coach. The problem is no team wants him. It takes the Yankles, an obscure orthodox yeshiva baseball team desperate for a coach, to give Charlie his second chance. A humorous match made in heaven, both Charlie and the team rise to unexpected triumphs resulting in
entrance to the college world series. With the championship in reach, it seems the Yankles just might need a miracle for that ultimate grand slam victory.

Format: DVD
In life, winning isn't everything. Sports films have built their own industry within an industry about exploring what it is that makes one a winner: is it the final score, is it the way the game is played, or is it something more, something magical, something that'll always be elusive except to those who're willing to put in on the line for their team? Along comes THE YANKLES, and you'll believe it has far more to do with one's faith - faith in the game, faith in your God, faith in yourself - and maybe that's the best estimation put to film yet.

Down-on-his-luck Charlie Jones (played by Brian Wimmer) - an ex-baseball player fresh out of jail and trying to reform his life and image - can't find a team anywhere that'll touch him with a ten foot pole. Enter "the Yankles," a brand-new college team desperately in need of a coach! A former Minor League playing now pursuing his faith learns that Jones needs to meet his community service commitment under the terms of his parole, and voila! It's a match made in sports comedy Heaven ... or whatever may account for Heaven in the Jewish faith.

What writer/director David R. Brooks (along with writing partner Zev Brooks) has done is they've smartly examined the world of sports through the prism of faith ... and why not? There have long been messages about believing in one's self mirrored in the best sports movies, but he's amped up the faith to an all new level here by revolving the story around a fictional collegiate team set at a Jewish school.

Format: Blu-ray
This is a very enjoyable movie with a big heart. It takes the classic underdog gets a second chance theme and presents it in its own unique way. It centers on a baseball team, but it is not a "sports" movie. It takes place at a Yeshiva, but it is not a religious movie. Rather, it's a feel-good movie with likeable characters that will absolutely leave a smile on your face. As far as originality, it does hew to the well-known cinematic theme of underdogs doing well under the guidance of new leadership, however much originality is here in context of the setting, the characters and their cultural struggles with the sport, as well as an interesting plot twist that may prevent them from ultimately playing in an important league tournament. I saw it on the big screen, and now that it is out on Blu-ray, I plan on having it as part of my permanent home library as well!

You don't believe for a second that a Rabbinical college would field a collegiate baseball team, much less a College World Series contender. I wont go into how much talent and experience it takes to play baseball at the college level, let's just say it's amazing. Also, the movie did not need the Bad News Bears ex-major league player doing community service schtick. That's been done in nearly every other baseball movie. It seemed like an afterthought, anyway. The sister was also an after thought and unnecessary distraction. The more interesting, and better acted aspect was Eliot, the ex-minor league player turned Rabbi, and his contrived troubles with his ex-major league player father. I could have taken a little more Don Most with a little less one-dimension to his character. The movie didn't fully use it's best assets, and instead tried to add stuff it did not need. Shoulda made it about Eliot, and called it Pride of the Yankles.

hubby and I loved the humor AND good ethical lessons learned. since I do not like swearing at all, especially using God's Name in vain, I cringed when His Name was used as a swear word. Other then that, it was a great movie! I dare film makers to make movies where there is no sexual inuendos, cursing, violence. It can be done. these three situations don't make a movie good.

We enjoyed this independent film tremendously. We purchased it because a relative has a small part in the film, and found the story quite charming and engaging. The acting and cinematography were excellent.
