Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Home Run examines the impact of alcohol addiction. It follows a selfish pro baseball player who's forced to coach a Little League team, only to discover that the simple things in life -- including family and faith -- can offer more than what he finds in a bottle. Most of the movie's content is quite mild, but the focus on drinking -- including scenes that show how drinking too much can destroy lives and lead to anger and some violence (hitting, etc.) -- makes the movie best suited for teens and up. Also, one character talks about being a survivor of sexual abuse.

Sexual Content

Two characters flirt and hint at a shared romantic past.


Cory is prone to bouts of rage. He hits another man during an argument and sometimes hits furniture and throws household objects. A woman talks about being a survivor of sexual abuse.


Infrequent, tame insult/potty language, including "butt," "fart" and "that sucks."

Social Behavior

Fighting alcohol addiction is difficult, but it can be done, and Cory shows that giving up liquor can make him into a much better person.


A baseball player mentions Nike shoes and enjoys driving a Corvette.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The film focuses on the effects of alcoholism, and the main character drinks heavily and often. He drives drunk, gets angry, hits people, and causes lots of trouble while intoxicated. He later realizes the error of his ways.
