Plot: A pro ball player with a substance abuse problem is forced into rehab in his hometown, finding new hope when he gets honest about his checkered past, and takes on coaching duties for a misfit Little League team. Runtime: 113 mins Release Date: 19 Apr 2013
In this movie the main character, Cory Brand, played by Scott Elrod, who is an all-star baseball hero, is suspended from his major league position when he has an accident involving alcohol. He is forced to undergo a 12 step program and convinced into coaching his hometown baseball team by his agent played by Vivica A. Fox. The interplay of their robust and tension-filled relationship offers many opportunities for humor.In this unheard of town out in the middle of the western plains, where he grew up, Cory revisits his youth and the past he left behind on the rise to stardom. This humbling <more>
experience brings out new facets to his character as he struggles with the reality of the consequences of the decisions of his past that he cannot escape.The heart of grace-filled Christianity is revealed as he works through the steps and principles of the program called "Celebrate Recovery". We discover, in this program, a wide gamut of character studies that uncover many of the frailties of the human condition. Unexpectedly, in the midst of the pain and turmoil of his new life, a former love interest offers the possibility of rekindling his passion for romance.There are unanticipated plot twists that keep things interesting. The relationships are real life, heartwarming, and unpredictably humorous. The villains are people that we can recognize in our own life and want to see them fail. There are strongly developed characters to root for and the plot reveals truths about the human condition and the falsehoods we often settle for. It gives hope to anyone to whom the painful circumstances in their own childhood have kept them in fear, unable to live their life to the fullest.Baseball fans can relate to the mechanics of building team morale and spirit in little league baseball and, perhaps, be caught up in the suspense as the game play takes on ingenuous and humorous turns. We can see young lives being renewed through love and kindness. WARNING: "Home Run" is a sentimental movie and it can very difficult not to laugh or cry when watching this film. For an uplifting experience I highly recommend this story. It is rated PG 13 for some mature themes involved in the story.
Great film! Great acting! Great production values! (by ashergil-673-804028)
It is rare that you see a film where everything works. Great acting and script. The photography was very good--too many films are playing around with lighting that is distracting. Usually because they have a bad script. This script sets just the right tone and it was a story that made sense-- and didn't disappoint. Made for a really enjoyable time. Highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed. Scott Elrod's performance is perfect. Not only does he look like a ball player, he is a fine actor. There is a naturalness about his performance that is enjoyable to watch. The chemistry <more>
between him and Dorian Brown and Charles Wyson is very pleasant to watch. This film is a real HOME RUN! Go and see it--you will enjoy it.
This movie is powerful. As someone who has dealt with these exact issues it blew me away. This movie has played a major role in a life change for me and I hope it can help others as much as it has helped me. God is definitely at work here. The movie covered so many things from arrogance to recklessness to redemption stemming from childhood issues that I am still in awe. Do not go in just expecting to see a baseball movie this is a tough love kind of movie that will pull at your heart strings if you truly have been there and shows how God can change your life not a baseball drama.It was a <more>
little slow getting started but by the end of the movie I was fighting off tears. I attend celebrate recovery at a local church and the requirement that they had for using it in the movie was to show they do not charge money as they are an organization that helps people not to make a profit.
Well done, well written, well acted, surprises, and very real (by cybersamster2)
A thought provoking movie. . .Home Run the Movie brings a sense of understanding, compassion, and hope to the ugly truth of addition, it users, abusers, and victims. Many people find hopelessness, and live in denial while many others find themselves totally repulsed by those who are addicted or abuse. HomeRun will challenge your attitudes, judgments, and compassion for the abuser and their victims as well as others around them, without accepting excuses. It is a movie that will stay with you. You will continue to ponder its impact on your own thinking.If you have ever struggled with an <more>
abusive situation in your life, either as a by-stander, an addict, an abuser, a victim, or if you know some who has, this movie is very worthwhile. I highly recommend it because we all encounter this in our life at one point or another.
An uplifting movie about a baseball player's battle with alcoholism (by ebrianhanley)
The only problem would be the length of the movie - was a bit drawn out. With that said, I must say that the acting was very good and drew me into the story. I hope to see more two main actors Scott Elrod, Dorian Brown in other movies in the future. Scott Elrod really made the character believable in his struggle the good, the bad and the ugly . Dorian Brown reminded me of a young Sandra Bullock and was very charming in her performance. The music was fitting to the scenes and really set the mood. The movie presented a believable story which was easy to follow and had you hoping that a happy <more>
ending was possible. All in all the movie was very good and professional. Great to see a movie with a positive message which shows Christianity in a positive light. Such a movie is is rare today - recommended.
I have no special interest in Christian-themed movies but found this a realistic and moving story, simply told yet with considerable dimension to the central characters and their conflicts. The Christian story element is neither obtrusive nor preachy. That he is an addict and must come to terms with it is what drives the story, and his denial, arrogance and resistance make it universal. If he finds solace, support and meaning in the Church, as opposed to some other form of recovery, why not? Many do. And it comes across here as natural given the circumstances. The lead actor was quite good, <more>
really able to represent the physicality and confidence of a professional athlete and at the same time his vulnerability and pain. He's both effectively callous and sympathetic in turn. Excellent supporting work as well; the two lead women were convincing. Thanks to Amazon Prime -- never would have discovered this movie otherwise.
A Must See - High Quality Story, Acting and Production (by critic_w)
Home Run is a very good and very simple story; more main-stream than Facing the Giants, Fireproof, or even Courageous. It chronicles the career of a major-league baseball player whose excesses get the best of him. We watch and enjoy the repair of his life and the lives of those around him. Due to it's simplicity and perhaps audience apathy towards this genre, Home Run will likely prove to be one of the most underrated films in a long time. It is of a recent slate of Christian message movies, and carries a certain pro-Celebrate Recovery message... but to summarize it as only that would do <more>
this movie and potential viewers a tremendous disservice. Get out and see it, or at least get the DVD! It is well directed, very well produced, and has the best acting of any movie in this group. On par anything out of Hollywood.
The performance by the lead actor "Scott Elrod" makes this movie worth watching. I'm in a mixed marriage, and my wife the Christian, lost interest in the movie despite to the strong religious overtones. As a Jew, I was fascinated by the use of religious values to help cure addictions; it's a strong and powerful message. Vivica Fox also puts in a very strong performance as the lead character's agent spokes person , so was believable in her role. As a public relations spokesperson, she plays her character exceptionally well, being able to profit from those she represents, <more>
yet knowing if they don't get help they will be worthless to herself & others. I'm looking forward to seeing Scott Elrod in future leading roles, Hollywood can use another strong lead actor who's message isn't hypocritical. I'm not sure why people didn't believe this was a baseball movie, with the constant flashbacks to the daemons of his fathers voice "haunting" him throughout the movie. The baseball cards in a closed box, representative of his inner child and letting them go at the end of the movie. Almost every scene was filmed at a baseball field or with a ball / ball; so how exactly is this not a baseball movie on the surface. It might have not been all filmed at the major leagues, but all players have to get their start somewhere. Whether at home growing up or in a little league type program. This is overall a good movie which kept my interest throughout yes, it slightly dragged at the 3/4 mark , with a positive message and some great lead acting.
What people don't like is the use of God and Faith as something that provides strength. Why anyone would find this objectionable mystifies me. If you have a serious problem that affects your life and the life of your family and friends and you can stop your bad behavior by taking strength from the Lord why is that bad? It isn't. What it is is the free thinkers thinking for you. See the movie unless God makes you barf. The movie was well acted with good production. The kids are cute, the girls are cute and even the old jalopy cars have nice wheels. What I found objectionable was using <more>
the police as the bad guy. Why not use another alcoholic dad. The show was a little long and the star was just to handsome but the girls like that.
