    'Million Dollar Arm' tosses out a nice softball

    You can see the stuff "Million Dollar Arm" throws at you from miles away, but that doesn't stop this baseball movie from being genially enjoyable. An example of the pleasant things that can happen when a better class of people work on Disney family films,...
