I'm not a sports fan and you will rarely find me watching a baseball game. However - I've really enjoyed some sports movies in the past and when I was given the chance to review this movie I grabbed it.
'A Mile in his shoes' is based on a book (The Legend of Mickey Tussler) about a boy who has Aspergers Autism.
Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur 'Murph' Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher's arm. However, Mickey's parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey's parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn't realize just how much his new recruit will help the team s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on a true story, Thomas Kinkade Presents: A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.
This was a really good family film, that will have you cheering on Mickey and leave you pretty frustrated with a few others in the movie. I did think it was somewhat predictable at times, but in a good way, if that makes any sense!
