Reviews:

  • "The Perfect Game is a near perfect film. It's heartwarming, beautifully directed, and you don't have to be a baseball fan to love it. The incorporation of actual films from the past involving the Monterrey Mexico team is wonderfully interwoven. It appeals to the young in all of us.", Larry King
  • "A very sweet, very slight family movie that scores smiles and tears of joy.", Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
  • "This inspirational film, written by first-timer (and producer) W. William Winokur, is not for cynics or those resistant to cute kids (and child actors sometimes given to mugging).", Lou Lumenick, New York Post
  • "If you love baseball or have a soft spot for stories about plucky underdogs, this is the movie to see. It doesn't have a big star like Sandra Bullock, but it has the same irresistible appeal that made 'The Blind Side' such a heart-stirring crowd pleaser.", Patrick Goldstein - columnist, The Los Angeles Times
  • "You sort of know how these underdog sports movies turn out. Doesn't matter. The Perfect Game so expertly uses the charisma and personalities of the actors, especially the young ones, that it's thrilling anyway.", Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
