TALENT FOR THE GAME (Theatrical Release USA 1991)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Talent for the Game—the theme of the story starts  in a tough place but rapidly moves to a lighter, happier presentation—serves WOW! levels of entertainment. With a story that Edward James Olmos and Lorraine Bracco fill to the brim and overflow with watchability value, the movie easily wins the best script award of the year. The movie becomes lovable from its opening to closing scenes and takes good advantage of the tension involved in catching a dream and making it a reality. The movie remarkably defines lovability and human-ness.
