Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this movie is rated G, it will not be of much interest to younger kids, since it deals primarily with an adult's pursuit of his career goals. Some kids might be upset by the scenes of Morris with his father, who is cold and unsympathetic, or by the financial problems faced by the family. There are references to divorce and remarriage.

Sexual Content

Some kissing between husband and wife.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Social Behavior

This story teaches the importance of setting goals and having an unyielding faith in something. Also, if you do not succeed; try again. And, one is never too old to follow their dream.

Consumerism

Ford trucks and Planters peanut logos are in the background. Frequent scenes with baseball brand names on bats and uniforms.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults drink casually after games. A few scenes take place in bars where the players toast with beer. A married couple shares a bottle of wine. No one gets drunk.
