Why - because it had Money in the title? Whose ass was Howard kissing when he said that? He can't comprehend even the simplest concepts of baseball and there's no way he could have understood what was going on. I love baseball and I like Brad Pitt, but I didn't think it was a great movie. The performances were good but it didn't hold my interest, although maybe it was because I already knew the outcome and was aware of the revolution in scouting based on statistics. Is someone associated with Moneyball also involved with AGT, NBC, or something Beth is doing or wants to audition for?
