Million Dollar Arm
Sometimes to win, you have to change the game.
It's just not cricket!
Another 'based on a true story' film, with a decidely offbeat plotline. A sports agent's career is in trouble. One night he sees a cricket match on TV, and an idea pops into his head. He and a talent scout head to India, where he launches a reality show competition called ''Million Dollar Arm.'' Two eighteen-year-olds emerge as winners, with their knack for throwing a ball really fast. They all go back to America for baseball training, where the Indians find themselves as fish out of water, not knowing either the game or the strange American culture. As time goes by, they learn what they need to know, and return the favour by teaching the sports agent what he really needs to know... and giving him something that he didn't even realise he was missing.
