Moneyball opens on Friday and stars Brad Pitt as Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane. Pitt looks like he will be at his quirky, high-strung best, while Jonah Hill co-stars as his stat geek partner-in-crime. The movie centers on the true story of the A's, as they attempt to build a contender on a budget.
There is little doubt it will do well at the box office, and should have some definite entertainment value. However, it has a long way to go to match up to these 10 classics.
