A Mile in His Shoes – Review & DVD Giveaway

From the director of “Angels In the Outfield” comes an inspiring story about a special boy with an amazing gift, and the coach who believed. Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the gmc movie based on the book “The Legend of Mickey Tussler”.

A Mile in His Shoes

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, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.

 

 

MY REVIEW:

A Mile in His Shoes is an excellent, excellent family movie!

I watched this movie with my family. There were 7 of us watching, 3 generations, ranging in age from 11 to age 75.

We ALL loved A Mile in His Shoes!

The main character, Mickey, has Aspergers Syndrome and lives at home with his very protective and strict parents.

When he runs his car into a ditch, a baseball coach happens to meet Mickey. Mickey helps him, then the coach sees Mickey “feeding” the pigs by throwing apples into a crate to smash them. “Throwing” doesn’t even begin to describe Mickey’s awesome pitching.

The coach wants Mickey to come pitch for his team. His father, however, is very against it. He finally relents and lets Mickey try it.

Mickey loves it and does an amazing job adjusting to his new surroundings and his new job.

The team accepts him, except for the pitcher who has to sit out games while Mickey pitches. He tries to make sure that Mickey will be unable to play baseball.

There is a fight seen in the movie, however, you don’t actually see anyone getting hit. The character just shows up in next seen with scrapes on his face. I think the scene was handled well as to make movie enjoyable for all ages.

Mickey goes from being secluded on the family farm to achieving the success that others only dream about. He overcomes what others think of him and shows that anyone can be successful and lead productive lives regardless of their starting point.

I highly recommend A Mile in His Shoes for you next family movie night!
