I'm not a sports fan, but this movie is definitely worth watching. Well done!

I liked this movie because it dealt with the sport of baseball. In the movie, Jonah Hill plays a sports player analyst named Peter Brand. In the movie, Peter uses mathematical formulas to pick under valued baseball players that are bright prospects. The movie is about the Oakland Athletics baseball team that has a small payroll. But, the Oakland A's still manage to defy the odds and win 20 consecutive baseball games using mathematical analysis to pick baseball players for their team. ******I think I watched this money about five times because I wonder how else I can use math. I wonder how Peter Brand would use math to calculate and find company stocks for investment prospects. Out of five stars, I would give five stars for this movie because it is that good. There is no CGI or computer special effects. It is just plain great acting by Pitt and Hill.

An interesting peak at the behind-the-scenes of baseball in the early 2000s. Overall entertaining.

What a great baseball movie. Brad Pitt did a really good job with his role.

Moneyball is a movie which has Brad Pitt as a lead role of Billy Beane, he is a general manager of the Oakland A’s. this movie is a sports type movie about baseball. It starts with Billy having to face a tight budget to run his team, and his mission is in a way to reinvent the team by joining forces with higher Ivy League graduate Peter Brand who is played by Jonah Hill. He recruits players who have been either kicked out or known as “flawed” but at the same time have great potential that can help the team. I rate this movie a 3.5 out of 5. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I like this film because it shows you when you get lemons, make lemonade. And I’m all in when it sayes ‘based on a true story’ that bring to light something I probably know nothing about. And how much sporting politics is just about as important as the game. I liked when they would show real clips of real games and people. Brad Pitt gets better with each film.

Hell of a movie. Interesting look at teams and players.

A pioneering general manager in the cutthroat world of baseball is lambasted by the naysayers as he takes a bold step trying to even the score with the richer teams. A novel approach thanks to his number-crunching sidekick means a smarter, more sophisticated way of identifying talent and horsetrading players to piece together a winning team. The underlying moral of the story is that the world is too quick to write off a person who doesn't fit the mold and it takes someone truly unique to see the diamond in the rough. Pull up a seat, break out the popcorn and "just enjoy the show".

Peter Brand: The Visalia Oaks and our 240 lb catcher Jeremy Brown, who as you know, scared to run to second base. This was in a game six weeks ago. This guy is going to start him off with a fastball. Jeremy's going to take him to deep center. Here's what's really interesting, because Jeremy's gonna do what he never does. He's gonna go for it. He's gonna around first and he's gonna go for it. Okay?

[On the video, Jeremy trips and falls over first base]

Peter Brand: This is all Jeremy's nightmares coming to life.

Billy Beane: Awwww, they're laughing at him.

Peter Brand: And Jeremy's about to find out why. Jeremy's about to realize that the ball went 60 feet over the fence. He hit a home run and didn't even realize it.
