Come on, IMDb. Every poster has it as one word. It's one word on Netflix. I already have a hard enough time finding most foreign films on iCheck, Hardball shouldn't have to be difficult too.

Turn-of-the-millennium Keanu's type-casting seems to be "unlikable", but it never really sits well with him, so when he becomes a better person mid-movie, as he does in Hardball (and previous to that, Sweet November), it feels more natural, and you can't quite explain how he ever was that much of an asshole to begin with. In this sports flick, Keanu is a gambling addict with a leg-breaking amount of debt, who agrees to coach a little league team in the bad part of town to make enough cash to make his big bet. The kids will melt his heart, the attractive teacher will give him something else to live for, yadda-yadda. You know the drill. The movie's structure is a bit of a mess, resolving plot points sequentially instead of building to a crescendo, so it feels like it's about to end and keeps going a couple more times. I still found myself liking this. The kids are a fun group - oh look, baby Michael B. Jordan! - well-differentiated and likeable, and the film pulls at the heartstrings by not painting over the fact they're living in a crime-ridden neighborhood, baseball their only escape.
