The Rookie

Year released



Family, Biographical, Sports




High school coach Jim Morris (Dennis Quaid) thought his dream was over. He'd had his shot at playing baseball, blew out his shoulder, and retired without ever reaching the big leagues. Then, in 1999, he made a bet with his perpetually losing team: If they won the district championship, Jim – who threw a 98 mph fastball – would try out for the majors. The team went from worst to first, and Jim was soon on the road to becoming the oldest rookie in the major leagues.

Based on true events, The Rookie stars Dennis Quaid as Jim Morris, who never made it out of the minor leagues before a shoulder injury ended his pitching career. However, it turns out that it’s never too late to see your biggest dreams come true, with Morris making a deal that will change his life forever.

The Rookie is a compelling and nuanced sports movie, one that isn’t afraid to go for depth and offers a brilliant performance from Quaid, who is excellent in the lead role. If you’re looking for an uplifting flick, you can’t go wrong with this one.
