Moneyball is the invigorating true story about the rise of the Oakland A's--a baseball team with a tiny budget. Starring Brad Pitt as Billy Beane and Jonah Hill as Peter Brand, the duo try to re-invent the game of baseball by using a new way of recruiting players. The movie was serious at times, but the comic relief is very funny. I thought it was really clever when they used real footage of baseball games in the film, as well as recreating games. The acting was also spot on. Considering I'm not the biggest baseball fan, this movie was actually really good. It is rated PG-13 for some profanity but, aside from that, all of the subject matter is appropriate for kids as young as ten. Over all, I would give Moneyball 4 out of 5 stars.
