A League of Their Own is about looking back on a special time in your life. That doesn't have to be sports.

If, as Jimmy famously tells us, there's no crying in baseball, there's plenty of it in baseball nostalgia.

If director Penny Marshall were a baseball player, she'd probably be a scrappy catcher who plays steadily and reliably, always has her head in the game and usually comes through in the clutch.

It is not Great Cinema, but it's really freaking good entertainment, smart without being brainy and nice without being saccharine.

League wants you to laugh more than anything else, and Hanks makes sure that you will.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 6, 2014
The movie drones along uninvolvingly, as if it were erecting a monument, not telling a story.
May 6, 2014
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.
March 20, 2013
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.

March 20, 2013
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?
March 19, 2013
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.

March 19, 2013
This movie aims for the tear ducts and the funny bone as ruthlessly as the big action-fantasy hits go after the viscera.
March 19, 2013
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.
July 3, 2012
Marshall's finest hour as a filmmaker, capturing audience-pleasing moments with assurance, while also paying careful attention to the vulnerabilities of the characters.

March 25, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 10, 2009
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.
August 1, 2008
Hits about .250 with a few RBI, but more than its share of strikeouts.
August 1, 2008
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.
