A League of Their Own Reviews

Page 2 of 3
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.
March 21, 2007
As uneven as an amateur baseball game.

March 21, 2007
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.
January 24, 2007
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.

the film combines humor, historical trivia, and the thrill of baseball to create a fully entertaining, fictional tale
| Original Score: 4/5
June 24, 2006
Scriptwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel neglect the ensemble, emphasising a sense of historical occasion over character development.
November 10, 2005
Enjoyable enough as a baseball comedy, even though Marshall overplays the drama.
| Original Score: 3/5

"There's no crying in baseball!"

One of the best baseball movies of all times; just remember, there's no crying in baseball!

May 28, 2003
An excellent comeback vehicle for Hanks, and a good film, overall.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
One of the year's most cheerful, most relaxed, most easily enjoyable comedies. It's a serious film that's lighter than air, a very funny movie that manages to score a few points for feminism in passing.
March 23, 2003
It is a fitting tribute to those who played and those who kept the league going for over 10 years.

This was probably supposed to be a feminist manifesto, but the men steal the picture.

November 7, 2002
A well-performed, snappily written and well-intentioned piece of entertainment that, surprisingly, has some historical information and a gently pitched line of social commentary running through the comedy.

Watchable, star-studded fluff
