“The Catcher was a Spy” and Pretty Good

People lament the lack of movies that aren’t reboots or sequels or new films in a larger franchise, but here’s the thing — original stuff still exists, you might just actually have to look for it.  Out this week on DVD is “The Catcher was a Spy,” and it’s new and good and just requires a little more effort than hitting the local multiplex.

The film stars Paul Rudd as a Red Sox catcher, Moe Berg, who becomes a spy during World War II.  Even if we forgive the historical accuracy required of putting a Red Sox player on film, we can still all appreciate Rudd’s performance and what the film has to offer.
