"Million Dollar Arm" movie quotes tell the true story of one sports agent who molds some unlikely Indian cricket players into Major League Baseball stars. The sports drama was written by Tom McCarthy and directed by Craig Gillespie. Distributed by Disney, "Million Dollar Arm" opened in theaters on May 16, 2014.
In "Million Dollar Arm," J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm) is an American sports agent who, along with business partner Ash Vasudevan (Aasif Mandvi), is struggling terribly. With limited prospects, J.B. is forced to think outside the box if he wants to stay in business. So when he's watching cricket on television one late night, he gets an idea. He, along with baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), will head to India, find a great cricket player and groom him into a star baseball player, all in reality television show style. The unlikely show, titled "Million Dollar Arm," is born.
J.B. finds two potential MLB pitchers, Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma), and brings them to Los Angeles. Despite their potential, however, they don't know the first thing about baseball. In order to get them into the MLB and out of the so-called sideshow they are playing in during the process, they will need a lot of practice, patience and even some familial love."Million Dollar Arm" is sure to drive in the viewers but it will have to complete with other films such as "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Moms' Night Out," "Devil's Knot," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Locke," "Brick Mansions," "The Other Woman," "Transcendence," "A Haunted House 2," "Heaven is for Real," and "Draft Day"
Don't Be a Sideshow
Pete: "This is baseball, not some social experiment."
Tom House: "They're not ready for this kind of pressure."
J.B. Bernstein: "This is business."
Tom House: "Taking them out of their comfort zone, putting them in front of a media circus. It will be a sideshow. Don't be a sideshow."
They Need to See That You Care
Brenda Fenwick: "Are you okay?"
J.B. Bernstein: "These kids, they're my last, best shot."
Brenda Fenwick: "But they're also just a couple of great kids. Kids, I mean, they're far from home. They need to see that you care."
The First Major League Baseball Player from India

How Fast Do They Pitch in Cricket?
J.B. Bernstein: "Hey, how fast do they pitch in cricket? I think I know how to crack this."Sitting home watching television one night gives J.B. Bernstein what may be a brilliant idea. What if they bring a cricket player into Major League Baseball?
