DVD: Moneyball


In this Oscar-nominated true story, a baseball coach (Brad Pitt) develops a statistics-based method of assembling a top-flight team for a bargain-basement price.

But Moneyball never quite communicates how the system works, nor how it translates into an all-conquering team. Disappointingly, Aaron Sorkin's script prefers to fall back on humdrum scenes of the coach bonding with his daughter.
