YMMV / The Natural

  • Awesome Music: The theme music by Randy Newman it's epic in its own right.
  • Heartwarming Moments: In the Give Me a Sword scene, when Hobbs says to the Knights' batboy, Bobby, "Go pick me out a winner," the boy, who Hobbs taught to make his own regulation baseball bats, brings him back a bat Bobby himself made, named "Savoy Special." The look that Roy gives Bobby makes it clear to everyone that Hobbs understands precisely how much this bat means to the young man, and what it means that Hobbs is being allowed to use it.
  • Moment of Awesome: If you are a baseball fan and you don't think that Roy's final at-bat was amazing, then you are a liar and aren't a real baseball fan. And on a less specific superlative, for anyone else it is awesome because it is about as dramatic a happy ending as you can get in a film.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The theme music by Randy Newman sounds suspiciously like Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man".
