The saying goes, “If you build it, they will come” but sometimes, you have to go to India first. Spring is here, and baseball season is starting, and Disney is getting on the mound with “Million Dollar Arm,” another inspirational sports movie with a fish-out-of-water twist.
Starring Jon Hamm, Lake Bell and Alan Arkin, the based-on-a-true-story film follows sports agent JB Bernstein whose career hits a slump, but heads to India with harebrained scheme to recruit cricket
pitchers bowlers for the big leagues. When he brings back the promising talent, they get a reality check and he gets a life lesson or something. Anyway, as you’ll see in the four clips below JB’s plan is not without hiccups and quirkiness but it will probably all end okay for everybody because, Disney.
“Million Dollar Arm” pitches on May 16th.
