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!|The movie is a remake of a 1951 film starring Paul Douglas and Janet Leigh.|In Great Britain, the film is known simply as ANGELS.

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.

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.

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.

I'm 15 years old and I still love this movie! It is just so cute and entertaining that I can watch it again and again and never get bored of it. It makes me feel good and happy after I watch it. Perfect for kids, but it can also be for the adults. One of my all time favorites!

Usually, Disney films are filled with such sappy schmaltz that even the most emotional of viewers have a hard time being drawn into the story. "Angels in the Outfield", for a change, strikes exactly the right chord between emotion, humor, and just plain fun that makes a joy to watch again and again.

Here's the basic plot: A young orphan named Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is promised by his deadbeat Dad that the family will come together again when the downtrodden California Angels baseball team wins the pennant. After a heartfelt prayer from Roger on that very matter, he begins to see a swarm of angels, led by the enigmatic "AL" (Christopher Lloyd), helping the team finally start to move up in the standings. The Angels' manager, Mr. Knox (Danny Glover), begins to take a liking to young Roger, first viewing him as a good luck charm, then starting to believe in the magic surrounding the team.

What I really find charming about this film comes in two different areas: First, the humor doesn't pander to the kiddies. I'm in my twenties and, though being a baseball nut helps this process, can still laugh out loud at many moments throughout the movie. Also, the message is just heartfelt enough to resonate with me emotionally, but not overly done to feel sickening.

The acting is terrific all the way around, as the kids, players, manager, and even all the auxiliary performers shine in whatever capacity they are given. The sport of baseball is known for harboring some colorful characters, and this film doesn't spare you from that aspect of the game!

Thus, I consider "Angels In The Outfield" to be one of the best family films I have ever seen. Plus, if you are a baseball fan whatsoever, the subtle references and situational humor will make you appreciate the experience even further.
