4 stars out of 5 -- "One of the best movies with a sports backdrop....An '80s who's who of acting talent..."
This allegorical tale of success and failure in America tells the story of a natural born baseball player who should have been a star but gets a last chance to shine. Randy Newman's memorable score complements an excellent directorial effort by Barry Levinson.
