Editorial Reviews

A down-and-out ex-baseball player, Charlie Jones, needs to meet his community service hours as a coach. The problem is no team wants him. It takes the Yankles, an obscure orthodox yeshiva baseball team desperate for a coach, to give Charlie his second chance. A humorous match made in heaven, both Charlie and the team rise to unexpected triumphs resulting in
entrance to the college world series. With the championship in reach, it seems the Yankles just might need a miracle for that ultimate grand slam victory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable June 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a very enjoyable movie with a big heart. It takes the classic underdog gets a second chance theme and presents it in its own unique way. It centers on a baseball team, but it is not a "sports" movie. It takes place at a Yeshiva, but it is not a religious movie. Rather, it's a feel-good movie with likeable characters that will absolutely leave a smile on your face. As far as originality, it does hew to the well-known cinematic theme of underdogs doing well under the guidance of new leadership, however much originality is here in context of the setting, the characters and their cultural struggles with the sport, as well as an interesting plot twist that may prevent them from ultimately playing in an important league tournament. I first saw it on the big screen, and now that it is out on Blu-ray (as well as on Amazon Instant Video), I plan on having it as part of my permanent home library as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good movie July 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a very good movie. I liked it very much. I especially liked the cool Jewish stuff. I did not understand all of the Jewish expressions. But I still liked the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yankles Nachas August 29, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Unfocused, unoriginal, unusual and upbeat. “The Yankles” is an uneven but ultimately entertaining and educational peek into Orthodox Jewish culture. The baseball themes are mostly imitative, the baseball scenes are up and down, and I’m not clear on what the Orthodox practice is concerning marriage, but my favorite thing about the movie is the music. It’s sweeter than kosher wine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie............ March 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Wonderfully funny, inspiring moving that teaches something. This movie looks into the lives of students of a Orthodox Jewish college whose Rabbi starts a baseball team and the stumbling blocks they encounter. All is well in the end and it proves that you don't have to give up your morals and sense of honor to have fun. It also gives a brief peak into the Orthodox Jewish religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine Movie September 19, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I really like this movie. It is entertaining, and it has a wonderful message. It, I believe, can also help people be more tolerant of other people and religions, because through this movie one feels as though you understand other cultures better. As Mark Twain said; travel to other places and cultures helps cure prejudice. This movie is like traveling to the place where the Yankles began and enjoying the journey with them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable even though a bit hokey July 12, 2013
By Yonatan
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Very cute movie, even though not realisti,c but definitely worth renting or adding to your video collection. The premise is more than a stretch. No Haredi (Chassidic) Yeshiva would field a baseball team with other colleges and the Mormon actors often butcher the Hebrew pronounciation, even for a Yeshivish accent. Rabbinical Yeshivot (plural of Yeshiva) don't usually have 'grades' and student can range from high school through retired seniors. But if you can get past that, and most everyone will, it's a fun piece of cinema. Well acted, well videographed and well put together.

An ok movie. Different (slightly) plotline than some sports movies. Don't think I'd enthusiastically recommend it. Not related to the Yankees.

When Yankles came up on Prime, we decided we had to check it out for "bad movie night". The premise was hilarious, so we expected it to be delightfully awful, instead it... Read more
