An example of the pleasant things that can happen when a better class of people work on Disney family films, it makes touching all the bases feel like fun. Based on a true story so improbable you might not believe it at all except for the reality footage shown at the end, “Million Dollar Arm” is built around the charismatic presence of Jon Hamm, “Mad Men’s” Don Draper, but its off-screen strengths include two people who are not household words, screenwriter Tom McCarthy and director Craig Gillespie.
Advertisement McCarthy, whose character-driven writing credits include “The Station Agent” and “Win Win,” two fine films he also directed himself, and Gillespie, best known for Ryan Gosling ‘s underappreciated “Lars and the Real Girl,” combine to give the film a spirit that is amusing and warm-hearted without being excessively cloying.
