Editorial Reviews

Catch the movie that flew over the fence and into the hearts of millions of cheering fans! It's Disney's ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD, the feel-good film about a young boy praying for a father -- and a struggling baseball team praying for a pennant. Danny Glover plays George Knox, the frustrated coach of the California Angels, a ragtag team of major-league misfits who are down on their luck. But things begin to look up when 11-year-old Roger, their biggest fan, starts giving Knox some winning tips from a real live angel named Al (Christopher Lloyd). The team miraculously climbs back into the pennant race ... all the while learning to believe in themselves. With its heavenly mix of outrageous comedy, dazzling special effects, and amazing baseball action, Disney's ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD is an entertainment home run for the whole family!

Im 14 now and I still love to watch this great classic baseball movie!
This movie has a way of making everyone feel good, as we watch the California Angels swing back into action.
Geraldine Ahearn
I replaced my VHS with this DVD because it's a great movie for kids to watch over and over again.

This is one film I am aiming to get on DVD. But even on VHS, this film sparkles. The cynical amazon review talks about the effects heavy side of the film, but I guess I must have seen another film, since I thought that the material was treated with respect, and done as unobtrusively as you can possibly do with the appearance of Angels.
The cast is excellent, and I feel that this film works in a great way, not simply because it is a Disney film. Forget the comments that slate this film as cheezy, or sugary... it is just plain wonderful.
The brief appearance of the kid's Dad is memorable in retrospect, since it is played by the actor who also appears in ABOUT SCHMIDT, and does a wonderful job there as well.
Danny Glover fills an absolutely brilliant role as the coach, and eventually fills bigger shoes in the lives of the two main children.
Tony Danza plays a very accessable role as a "has-been" pitcher, who is given one final moment of glory thanks to the magic of the Angels, and the intercession of the young child lead ( you can see why when you watch the film). It is all very heart warming stuff in many ways, and whilst it has a lesson or two for many people, it is mainly very fine entertainment.
Christopher Lloyd does a great job as the lead Angel, and the ancilliary Angels are great as well.
This is one immensely beautiful film.

Format: DVD
Roger and JP are in Maggie's foster home. They're unrelated boys who have become close friends while staying with Maggie. 7-ish JP tags along with 10-ish Roger to nearby Angel Stadium to watch some games, and Roger prays for Divine intervention, believing that an offhanded comment by his father ensures that his family will reunite if the Angels win the American League pennant.

Roger and his father never reunite, but Roger and JP end the movie excited about a promised placement, together, with a prospective adoptive father. This movie could be a good choice for pre-teens and young teens in foster care, if they can get past the cheesy scenes where angels (the Heaven ones, not the California ones) manipulate baseball games. The movie touches on a lot of experiences that kids in foster care sometimes experience: kids they come to care about get moved from the foster home on short notice; expectations of birth family members are sometimes disappointingly unfulfilled; Court appointments interrupt your life. The movie is not without flaws, but it does have some powerful moments and could serve as a powerful conversation starter.

I loved this movie. I thought the acting was very strong and the story was inspiring. Roger and JP are two young boys living in a foster home under the care of the kindhearted Maggie. JP is your typical adorable and happy-go-lucky (for the most part) kid, but Roger is still hoping that his messed-up father will come back for him. Apparently, Roger's father tells him that he will only come back if the California Angels baseball team--the worst team in the league--wins the pennant. So, Roger becomes an instant fan, and he and JP begin to follow the team. Manager George Knox is bullheaded and about ready to pack up and leave until Roger starts to see angels who just might be able to carry the team where they need to go. All in all, it is just a very good film that has something powerful to say about having faith, pulling together as a team, and forming your own family bonds when the ones that you have are broken.I recommend this one 100%, and it is worth every cent of your money.

Format: DVD
In an attempt to repeat the magic and financial success they had with `The Mighty Ducks' (92) two years previously, Disney turned their attention to major league baseball and the hometown Angels. Deciding to do a remake of the '51 film `Angels in the Outfield' which starred Paul Douglas they had all they needed available right from the beginning; a tried and true storyline to work from and access to a local, professional baseball team. What could make things more perfect? Well how about the fact that the team in question just happened to be named the Angels fitting perfectly into the title and theme of the proposed film! Ahh..., the genius of the Disney machine is a beautiful thing to observe isn't it?

The end result of their endeavors, `Angels in the Outfield' is definitely a kid friendly film that the whole family can not only enjoy but the wise parent may even be able to use some aspects of the storyline as "teachable moments" with their children. Maybe a conversation on the plight of the orphan and the importance of parenting might be in order, or on a more personal, human potential level how confidence in yourself and your own abilities can lead to miraculous achievements? if you're more spiritually oriented you may wish to use the film to initiate a discussion on the existence and function of angels and the role of faith? One that immediately comes to mind is the warning that smoking is hazardous to your health (remember at the end when Al (Christopher Lloyd) the boss angel informs Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) that one of the players will be playing for the REAL Angels soon due to his twenty year smoking habit). Leave it to Disney to not only entertain, but instruct (I hope you realize I'm being facetious).
