Screwball is a madcap story of capitalism, South Beach hucksters, broken rules, shady characters, bad medicine and good drugs. In short: it's a story as American as baseball and apple pie.

Screwball is a truly original home run in documentary storytelling.

Docu about MLB doping scandal has profanity, drugs.

If you preferred the scumbag version of ARod, you're likely to enjoy Screwball, which looks back on the Biogenesis scandal

Screwball suggests that even if you remember the broad contours of the saga, you might not recall the unbridled seediness and bumbling incompetence of virtually everyone involved.
April 4, 2019
Coming from someone who doesn't particularly care for baseball or documentaries on the subject in general, "Screwball" is a home run.

The saddest thing about Screwball isn't that it's eye-opening and infuriating; it's that its duplicity and villainy feel commonplace, if not inevitable.
April 4, 2019
Another masterpiece of wild and woolly Floridiana from Florida's documentarian laureate, Billy Corben.

April 4, 2019
Screwball is an entertaining way to bring a very serious scandal to light. There is a lot of information to take in such as the who is who and who said what, so it can be a lot to keep up with and it does move fast at times.

This is a film that will mean a lot more if you're a fan of baseball or aficionado of the recent trend for sharing tales of low quality Floridian crimes.

A smart revisiting of baseball's A-Rod steroid scandal, a little too gimmicky for its own good
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Clearly, [Billy] Corben had fun directing this film, weaving an odyssey of idiotic criminality with a narrative full of joy and style. [Full review in Spanish]

You don't need to be a fan to appreciate this lighthearted documentary investigation into the most recent of Major League Baseball's doping scandals.

When the grown men often act like children, it feels like overkill to have children portraying the grown men.

Proving once again that truth is much stranger than fiction... Screwball is no home run, it is still a solid base hit of a film.
March 29, 2019
In a sense, it's the ultimate "Florida Man" story.
Full Review | Original Score: B

[Screwball] is fascinating as an examination of how carefully one needs to choose their allies, especially when they're committing crimes.

Inevitably, the oddball Elmore Leonard-meets-the Little Rascals conceit loses some of its wacky effectiveness, but while Corben might not hit this one out of the park, "Screwball" energetically rounds the bases.
