2011) Based on the book by Michael Lewis, this enjoyable, thinking person’s sports movie centers on the real-life general manager (Brad Pitt) of baseball’s Oakland Athletics who, together with a young statistician (Jonah Hill), gambles on a new approach to the game and fields a team with a comparatively miniscule payroll. Director Bennett Miller, working from a script by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin, has crafted a mature, humorous, and modest film that will appeal to aficionados and nonfans alike. Respectful of America’s pastime yet eager to spur positive change, it relays a timeless, double-headed piece of wisdom: Money can’t buy baseball pennants or happiness. Two rough terms, some crude and crass language, an instance of sexual banter, a few sexist remarks, and a scene in which a player’s religiosity is treated in a sarcastic manner. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) AMC (cable)
