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!

Format: VHS Tape
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.

Format: VHS Tape
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.

I'm a former third grade teacher, and everytime I have viewed "Angels in the Outfield" I had a good laugh. I'm always reminded of the way I felt when my eight year old students wanted to play softball. It was utterly a non-game but so-o-o funny. Now I have nephews who are starting to play ball (ages 5-7). I bought the DVD for them, because I want them to really enjoy the baseball experience and know that it is just a game and not to be taken too seriously at an early age. Besides, it gave me an opportunity to watch the movie again and with good company.

We love this movie for different reasons. It teaches you to believe in yourself, it has funny moments, and refreshing moments that tug at the heart. Danny Glover, Tony Danza, and Christopher Lloyd, are superb in acting performance. This movie has a way of making everyone feel good, as we watch the California Angels swing back into action. The coach played by Danny Glover begins the season with frustration, dealing with a team of misfits, until a young boy shares winning tips from an angel, played by Christopher Lloyd. As a result, the team touches the hearts of millions of fans, including all viewers of this inspirational movie. This delightful movie is a mix of comedy,baseball action, and inspiration, with dazzling special effects. A wonderful family movie that everyone will enjoy as it entertains from beginning to end, while you cheer for this amazing baseball team. Highly recommended!

A doomed bunch of baseball players are helped by a boy who hallucinates about angels showing up at the baseball park, choosing players at random & giving them super strength to play baseball to win. Eventually they make it from being the biggest losing team to going to the world series to play against the White Sox. All in all, the movie does warm the heart & is recommended to all who appreciate this kind of wholesome madness involving the fictional mind of a foster child! A must have for all ages. Thanks
