Summary
  [Film]has the dubious honor of being the worst performing pic of recent years with a major Chinese name in the credits, China Film said on its website. Since its release nationwide on October 24 on 150 prints, "Home Run" has taken just 550,000 yuan ($80,000) nationally, China Film said. (Variety) Hong Kong actor Chapman To has only appeared in a handful of films in the last couple of years, and this Mainland-Hong Kong co-production is one of his latest works, where he stars opposite China's top actress Fan Bingbing. Unlike the absent father he played in 2006's Isabella, here To plays the single father of a 5-year-old boy, an honest good man, but nonetheless conflicted. Fan plays the host of a television reality program, who decides to put the child at the center of her show in a bid to boost the declining ratings. Director Fan Gang Liang has won international acclaim with his first film The Story of Xiao-Yan, and with Home Run he has honed his urban sensibilities to examine the clash of family and career in a modern Mainland metropolis. Perhaps the biggest revelation of this film is the child actor Zou Yanwen, whose performance has won him comparison with Gouw Ian Iskandar (After This, Our Exile), the youngest ever Golden Horse award winner.
