Dove Review

This is a very entertaining film. It shows what people who really love baseball and life will do to enjoy them. At first I was a little concerned because it gives the idea it was ok to lie and cheat. As the movie progressed It shows what happens and the price you have to pay for lying and cheating. This movie gives a few very precious reasons why life is what you make it. It also shows young and old that no matter what, honesty is always the best policy. This movie is awarded the Dove “ Family-Approved” Seal.
