A League of Their Own Reviews

February 7, 2020
Then comes the ending. Or rather endings, for in common with many Hollywood scripts. A League of Their Own mercilessly drags its heels.

A League of Their Own is a bright idea that turns into a pile of mush.
May 6, 2014
The movie drones along uninvolvingly, as if it were erecting a monument, not telling a story.

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.

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?

This movie aims for the tear ducts and the funny bone as ruthlessly as the big action-fantasy hits go after the viscera.

Hits about .250 with a few RBI, but more than its share of strikeouts.
March 21, 2007
As uneven as an amateur baseball game.

Scriptwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel neglect the ensemble, emphasising a sense of historical occasion over character development.

Considerable money and effort was lavished on this production, but problems in the script diminish the effort.

Marshall gums it all up in hokey sentiment.

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.
