Movie Info

Updated from the 1951 film of the same name, Angels In The Outfield takes liberties with the original to bring sentimental values to a modern setting. Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a foster child whose irresponsible father promises to get his act together when Roger's favorite baseball team, the California Angels, wins the pennant. The problem is that the Angels are in last place, so Roger prays for help to turn the team around. Sure enough, his prayers are answered in the form of angel Al

Uplifting (for some) fantasy-comedy-drama. Stick with original version from 1950s.

A sugary and sickening Disney remake...

Serviceable, but why does Tony Danza have to die?

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Terrible fantasy. Full of depressing things like orphans and death. No amount of angels can uplift that.

On behalf of Angels fans everywhere, I demand an apology from the makers of this film.

The main problem here is one that seems to plague too many movies these days -- the film simply cannot seem to settle on a tone, wildly careening from broad, silly slapstick to syrupy sentiment.

Audience Reviews for Angels in the Outfield

Angels in the Outfield is a dull family film that is far too sentimental to really stand out among other films and isn't entertaining in the long run. This is a boring film with a lazy cast, and dreadful performances. This is among the worst family films that Disney has produced. I thought that the film lacked anything to capture your interest and it was a total misfire. Sometimes, inspirational, feel good films tend to be lacking significantly, and Angels in the Outfield is one of those movies. I was bored with the plot, and the cast just didn't deliver any memorable performances. The material, although good natured, just fails to really engage the viewer, and in turn it becomes a highly forgettable feel good film, where other films are much better and stand out more. This is a stale train wreck of a movie, and by the time the credits roll, you want more out of the film. However, the script is flawed, has a lazy, predictable story and cheesy performances. This film plays out more like a bad joke, and it just doesn't accomplish what it sets out to do. There are far better films of this caliber out there, and this one is just not worth seeing. This film could have been good, but the filmmakers go overboard on its sentimental overtones, which never works, and ends up falling apart far too quickly. Watch something else instead; you'll be glad you did. Angels in the Outfield is a misfire of a family film, one that should be forgotten about. This was a disappointing an awful and the only entertaining part are seeing the credits roll. This film just lacks any shroud of originality, and peppers the plot with ever genre cliché that you can think of. Avoid this film, and watch Toy Story, Casper or The Sandlot instead. This family film is bad and pointless.

a lame and long intro and a plot that will make you sleep the only redeemable factor of this movie is Christopher lloyd but the rest of the movie will put you to sleep

Typical sentimental predictable fluff from Disney. There are some amusing and entertaining moments, but there's really nothing remarkable about what's on display here. Thank God Joseph Gordon-Levitt was able to redeem himself after this with the rest of his career.
