Went and saw this today. First it was kind of odd seeing Fat Jonah Hill in the movie after seeing "I'm dying of AIDS skinny" Jonah doing all the press. He should have stayed fat[ter]... I had pretty high expectations for the movie, and I think I thought it was just alright. I've read the book, am obsessed with baseball and stats, so I know the story pretty well. But, I think if you haven't read the book and maybe don't know the whole back story it's going to just come off odd. More of just a bio-pic maybe about Beane, but kind of a boring one? I don't know, it just seemed hard to shove the whole book or idea into a 2 hour movie. Brad Pitt was good, Jonah was good, but the movie kind of lacked something, or some of the nuances and deeper stuff. Obviously you have to develop stuff quicker in a movie, but it was like "Scouts Bad!" "Billy was a failed player" "A's have no monies" I did like how the movie made Art Howe look like a retard who wrongfully got credit, and only succeeded once he gave in to being Billy's puppet. 6/10 on my non existing scale.
