For Love of the Game ★★★

It's often too sappy and sentimental for my tastes, but the engaging performances from all involved and director Sam Raimi's deft touch to the proceedings make For Love of the Game more proof, along with the previous year's A Simple Plan, that Raimi can handle more serious and dramatic works as well as he can handle over-the-top action and cult horror films.
