Disney’s Million Dollar Arm – Premiere tickets giveaway for #Winnipeg!

23 Apr

million dollar arm  Disney’s new movie Million Dollar Arm will be in theatres May 16th. Here’s a write up of the story:

“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 (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18 year old boys 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.”

  1. Id either use it as a date night, or one of us could take our oldest boy who loves baseball! Depends on the day 😉

  2. Would love to see a ‘true story’ movie about how your life could change by being in the right place at the right time.

  3. Our anniversary is May 19 but I’ll be out of town that weekend to visit my grandmother, this would be the perfect date night before I go! I also LOVED field of dreams and moneyball, so I think this would be a winner!

  4. This sounds like such a good baseball movie…we have watched Rookie of the Year many times as a family…but to see one based on true events…even better.
