Movie Info

Foster kid Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) loves the Anaheim Angels, even though they're the worst team in the major leagues. His estranged dad promises to reunite the family if the Angels make it to the World Series, so Roger decides to ask for some divine help and prays that his favorite team will turn things around. Soon, a real angel named Al (Christopher Lloyd) shows up in response to Roger's prayers, and Anaheim's hopeless coach (Danny Glover) is shocked to see his team on a winning streak.

Audience Reviews for Angels in the Outfield

  • Jun 07, 2013
    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.

    Rewatched this recently. It was on TV some afternoon. The effects are quite cheap but the intentions are good. Plus its funny to see Joseph Gordon Levitt as a kid.

    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
