Movie Info

The All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League was founded in 1943, when most of the men of baseball-playing age were far away in Europe and Asia fighting World War II. The league flourished until after World War II, when, with the men's return, the league was consigned to oblivion. Director Penny Marshall and screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel re-create the wartime era when women's baseball looked to stand a good chance of sweeping the country. The story begins as a candy-bar

League wants you to laugh more than anything else, and Hanks makes sure that you will.

Though amusing enough to avoid absolutely drowning in schmaltz, it's sad to see a film with potential lose its way in the late innings.

Few of the other performers make an impression. A director who can lose Madonna in a crowd can't be said to appreciate charisma.

This movie aims for the tear ducts and the funny bone as ruthlessly as the big action-fantasy hits go after the viscera.

Hits about .250 with a few RBI, but more than its share of strikeouts.

The movie drones along uninvolvingly, as if it were erecting a monument, not telling a story.

Any roughness is smoothed over by the talented cast and a great deal of charm and affection for the era.

Marshall's methods overwhelm the material, and what emerges is a movie utterly without personality. A unique chapter in American history becomes a movie as ordinary as they come.

It's a cinematic home run, certain to please filmgoers who don't know a catcher's mitt from an oven mitt.

Part history, part comedy, and part soap opera, A League of Their Own casts a pretty wide net. For the most part, it's a net that's good fun to get caught in.

Marshall's finest hour as a filmmaker, capturing audience-pleasing moments with assurance, while also paying careful attention to the vulnerabilities of the characters.

The agenda here is clearly along the lines of good-natured vignettes, smart one-liners and a healthy dose of heartstring tugging.

Terrific tweens-and-up story of women's baseball.

It serves up good-natured entertainment, if you're in the mood, but be prepared to swallow a generous helping of sickly-sweet sentimentality along with the laughs.

As uneven as an amateur baseball game.

The idea of Penny Marshall's sentimental comedy--an all-American Girls Professional Baseball League in WWII--is so good that you wonder why no one has thought about it before; in the lead, Geena Davis is charming, and so is Tom Hanks.

So glad to finally see such an iconic piece of Evansville history! Bosse Field, America's third oldest ballpark, plays the home of the Racine Belles, and boy does she nail it!

A light-hearted story with a marginally-talented cast (e.g., Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell, Jon Lovitz, Lori Petty, Geena Davis -- not real powerhouse actors). Tom Hanks seems to be the center of gravity in this film -- but then again, he's the only one who's really pulling off the whole "acting" thing. Despite its flaws, it's a thoroughly enjoyable film with a great soundtrack.

You know you're watching something special when even Madonna does a good acting job. A highly enjoyable drama-comedy, that not only strikes a blow for gender equality and women in sports, but is also incredibly funny. I've never had much interest in baseball (watching it that is, because I do love playing it) and yet this movie had me very entertained. And if that doesn't say something about how fun it is, I don't know what will.

    1. Jimmy Dugan: Shit, Dottie, if you want to go back to Oregon and make a hundred babies, great, I'm in no position to tell anyone how to live. But sneaking out like this, quitting, you'll regret it for the rest of your life. Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up, you can't deny that.
    2. Dottie Hinson: It just got too hard.
    3. Jimmy Dugan: It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.
