A Mile In His Shoes Review & Giveaway

When I watch my kids play sports it always makes me feel good when the player with the least talent makes a goal, a basket, or gets a good hit off the pitch. You know that they are very excited to finally achieve something for the themselves and the team. That is the way A Mile In His Shoes makes you feel. It is about a young man that has Asperger's syndrome and he gets a chance to pitch for a baseball team. Pitching comes naturally to him but coping with the new environment and situation is what he really has to overcome. This uplifting movie is about determination, hope and friendships.    

In A Mile In His Shoes Mickey (Luke Schroder) is a young man with Asperger's syndrome. He helps with the family farm and has a incredible pitching arm. Arthur "Murph" Murphy is a baseball coach for the River Rats and discovers Mickey when he puts his car in a ditch right outside of the Schroder farm. Mickey's parents are reluctant to let him leave the farm because of his autism. Murph convinces Mickey's parents that their son is very special and they allow him to join the team. No one realizes how much Mickey helps the team game and their spirit. Mickey's parents especially his father finally realize that their son can succeed in the real world. A Mile In His Shoes is from the director of "Angels In the Outfield" and is based on the book "The Legend of Mickey Tussler".


My family enjoyed this movie very much and my kids have asked to watch it again several times. I really appreciate movies that can entertain my entire family without using foul language and excessive violence. There is one part of the movie where Mickey gets beat up by the bully of the team but you don't actually see him getting beat up.

This looks like a great movie!! We've been watching The Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof again around here. And we just introduced the older kiddo's to "Napoleon Dynamite" so now we are all walking around quoting one liners.

Mr. Popper's Penguins was a real crowdpleaser for our family. Our kids like penguins and my husband was willing to stay awake for Jim Carrey. Surprisingly, it was pretty family-friendly, for a Jim Carrey movie, although it did have a little violence towards the end (Jim Carrey whacks someone in the face a bit), but otherwise it was pretty watchable.
