Product Description


Les studios Walt Disney ne sont pas seulement les plus gros fournisseurs mondiaux de dessins animés ; ils produisent aussi régulièrement des longs-métrages de fiction destinés à un public familial. The Rookie (La Recrue en version française), réalisé par John Lee Hancock et mettant en vedette Dennis Quaid, appartient à cette catégorie.

Même si Jim Morris, la quarantaine bien tassée, a dû abandonner le baseball dans sa jeunesse à la suite d’une blessure, sa passion pour le sport est restée intacte. Ainsi, lorsque l’équipe d’amateurs qu’il entraîne le met au défi de tenter sa chance dans les ligues majeures, c’est son rêve d’enfant qu’il fera revivre, avec courage et détermination, tout en défiant les nombreux avis contraires.

Inspiré d’un fait réel, The Rookie joue avec des ressorts dramatiques éprouvés maintes fois mais efficaces. De beaux sentiments habitent les personnages brossés à gros traits, et les valeurs traditionnelles de l’Amérique sont assénées avec la délicatesse d’un marteau piqueur, sans que le film ne perde ses qualités de divertissement grand public. C’est le rêve américain à la sauce Disney, forcément faite pour plaire à tout le monde. --Helen Faradji

5.0 out of 5 stars great family movie from Disney (4.5/5) Sept. 17 2007
By falcon
this a great Disney flick.it is the story of an aging high school
baseball coach(Dennis Quaid),who was once on his way to the big leagues
as a pitcher,but suffered a career ending injury.but through series of
events,Jimmy Morris(Quaid)gets a second chance.you can probably guess
the rest.this is a great family film.it is inspirational,but doesn't
pour it on too thick.it's fun and entertaining.adults will enjoy this
movie as well as kids.it is based upon a true story,though i'm sure the
filmmakers took some liberties in telling the story.Quaid is
sensational as the title character,very convincing.if you're looking
for a film the whole family can enjoy,look no further. 4.5/5

I received the product, but the whole 'get it within the next 48 hours using Prime' was a bogus as one could endure. Days turned into well over a week and some.

The only reason I made the order was to get the products in time before I departed. I was actually delayed in going and still did not get some of the overall shipment, and what did arrive was a nightmare to actually get.

So ... Prime was a waste and I hate, Hate, HATE ... I LLOOOOOOOAAAATHHHHeeeeee UPS.

Otherwise, the products were as advertised.

4.0 out of 5 stars encouraging Nov. 25 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a Disney production based on the true story of Jim Morris, a father, teacher, and high school coach who played baseball but injured his shoulder before he could realize his dream to make it to the big leagues. Jim was coaching a perpetually losing team when the students challenged him to try again to fulfil his dream, and they would guarantee to start doing better.

Without spoiling the outcome, I'll say that this story is challenging to anyone who has an unfulfilled dream, no matter how old he/she is. Jim Morris was a fantastic role model for his own children, but for all of us who are willing to try again. We enjoyed this movie very much, and we recommend it for family viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great movie Nov. 18 2009
By Liz. C

not all of disney's movies have been great, in my opinion, but this one is an exception. The true story of a man who loves baseball,but gets busy with the usual life and family. Later he gets an unexpected second chance to play in the majors. If you like baseball movies, this one should be enjoyable. Also a good family movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good family film. Jan. 29 2004
By Erkle
I enjoyed this moview quite a bit. It had a nice cast, likeable characters, excellent music and a terrific story. The movie starts with his childhood just long enough to set the story and then we are re-introduced to the grown up Jimmy Morris (Dennis Quaid), his family and the high school baseball team he coaches. Its impossible not to like and root for him.
On the negative side, it was a bit long and the other weakness is that it did not always convey Jimmy Morris' love of baseball when he undertakes his unlikely quest to the major leagues. While the movie shows his ambivalence in missing his family as he begins his second shot at the majors, it doesn't capture the positive aspect of a man chasing his dream quite enough. Still, it was a nice movie that I have seen a bunch of times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best clean movie I've seen in years!!!! Jan. 26 2004
By Cindy
I happened to come across this movie on a Cable Channel a few weeks ago. Being a "Baseball Mom", I love to watch movies in the off season. This was such a fantastic, inspiring movie we just had to buy it. I think I have watched it now 4 times. Dennis Quaid was excellent in this part, and very believable as a Pitcher. I only wish that there were more movies like this one out there. Thanks to Mr. Morris for the story and Mr. Quaid for his exceptionl acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This Movie! Jan. 4 2004
This is the kind of movie that comes around only once every ten years or so. This movie has so much going for it one could type for quite a long time. But I don't want to spoil the storyline for any potential buyers. I will just point out that if you are looking for a great - no, make that OUTSTANDING movie for the whole family, this is it.
Dennis Quaid was made to play this role; and play it he did. If this movie doesn't touch your heart, you must not have one. If this movie does not inspire your passion, you must not have any. And last but not least, if you spend the money on this movie, you must be broke!
God Bless.
Look for the ossuary! Nero's Guard is watching!
