Fact-based inspirationalism appalling and amusing in ineptitude: a scrappy upstart Little League team from Monterrey, Mexico, blazes a trail across the U.S. to the 1957 World Series in Williamsport, evidently without ever having played a prior game, and without encountering en route a single intelligible and suspenseful baseball situation. The ignorance of the sport is tipped off early: “I tipped it,” protests a batter after a swinging third strike, even though the catcher cleanly catches the ball. With Clifton Collins, Jr., Cheech Marin, Jake T. Austin, Jansen Panettiere, and Emilie de Ravin; directed by William Dear. (2010) — Duncan Shepherd
