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.
