Manny Farber The Nation [An] ultra-civic-minded work manages to kill the idea of baseball as the national pastime. Sep 15, 2021 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The wacky career of baseball's Dizzy Dean - as pitcher, radio commentator, private citizen, and screwball - is engagingly corned up in this lively diamond comedy. Oct 28, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews If you don't like baseball, you probably won't like this pic. Rated: C+ Apr 5, 2006 Full Review John A. Nesbit Old School Reviews A potentially good film is trimmed down to a tolerable mediocre one, and Diz and the Cardinals deserve better. Rated: C- Sep 1, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A great baseball story, about Cardinal great Dizzy Dean. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A potentially good film is trimmed down to a tolerable mediocre one, and Diz and the Cardinals deserve better. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Better than average baseball film, with Dan Daily doing a surprisingly excellent job in his portrayal of baseball great Dizzy Dean. Entertaining and moving. It's a very Hollywoodized biography, but that is part of it's charm. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
