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

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.

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.

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.

What does it say about today's Hollywood when the most interesting character in a movie about a women's baseball team turns out to be a man?

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

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.

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.

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

Energetic, full of goodwill and good feelings, it never quite attains the graceful nonchalance and self-confidence with which finely tuned athletes -- and comedies -- move and enchant us.

Deftly structured by director Penny Marshall and writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel to resemble a 40s musical (albeit, somewhat anachronistically, one in 'Scope); the rest is mainly streamlined and spirited teamwork.

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.
