Disney's "Million Dollar Arm" Blu-ray™+Digital HD Review Giveaway

I was very happy to receive a Blu-ray™ + Digital HD copy of "Million Dollar Arm" for review and even happier to be able to offer one as a giveaway.

Disney's "Million Dollar Arm" is based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma), two young men who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India — the boys, who have never left their rural villages — are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball — JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell) — learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

Cheered by audiences and critics alike, this “genuine crowd pleaser” (Pete Hammond, Movieline) delivers major league fun on Blu-ray and Digital HD with grand-slam high definition picture and sound that bring the excitement of the stadium experience right into viewers’ homes. The in-home release of “Million Dollar Arm” also steps up to bat with bases loaded with exciting bonus features, including an alternate ending, deleted scenes, outtakes, the making-of featurettes “Training Camp,” “Their Story,” “Million Dollar Music by A. R. Rahman,” and more!

This is an entertaining and heartwarming movie. The fact that it is a true story makes it even better! We watched it as our Family Movie Night and each one of us was glad we did. You don't have to be a baseball fan to appreciate it either. I came away with a better understanding of major league baseball, valuable life lessons and a greater appreciation of life in India.  I laughed and cried for the approximately 124 minutes running time. I highly recommend adding this to your movie wishlist!
