I loved this movie! I kind of think watching baseball is boring as hell, but this film as a whole was pretty excellent. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill both put in some good acting, though what I liked most was just the overall philosophy they were using to put their team together. Also, it was kind of cool remembering that A's/Royals game back then. That game might be one of the only three baseball games I've ever actually watched. Pretty kewl.
Don't really have any type suggestions per se, but Jonah Hill was a lot more likable to me in that role. I don't know. He kind of reminded me more of my brother or something. Weird!
