A League of Their Own Reviews

Page 1 of 3
June 24, 2006
Scriptwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel neglect the ensemble, emphasising a sense of historical occasion over character development.
May 6, 2014
The movie drones along uninvolvingly, as if it were erecting a monument, not telling a story.
January 1, 2000
Considerable money and effort was lavished on this production, but problems in the script diminish the effort.

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

Marshall gums it all up in hokey sentiment.
January 1, 1992
From its jokey, one-note characters to its endless baseball montages, A League of Their Own is all flash, all surface: It's a great big trailer for itself.

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
Few of the other performers make an impression. A director who can lose Madonna in a crowd can't be said to appreciate charisma.

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 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 21, 2007
As uneven as an amateur baseball game.

25 years later, director Penny Marshall's A League Of Their Own remains that rare thing: a sports movie with female characters to look up to.
June 26, 2017
If, as Jimmy famously tells us, there's no crying in baseball, there's plenty of it in baseball nostalgia.
June 24, 2015
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's a cinematic home run, certain to please filmgoers who don't know a catcher's mitt from an oven mitt.
