The film works best when all involved concentrate on being funny. Director/writer Robert King and co-writer Garrett K. Schiff's teleplay has a lot of hilarious moments, especially in the hands of actors Patrick Warburton, as a down-on-his-luck pitcher for the (now dubbed) Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and Kurt Fuller, as his eager beaver agent. There are smaller roles that are just as good, such as Peter Keleghan's, as a cynical and smarmy broadcaster, and some that are not as good as you'd expect them to be, such as David Alan Grier's, as the angel who must lend a helping hand this time around. But overall, when King's directorial timing is on and he's not being too toddler-style silly (but even those few moments almost work), this is the funniest film by far out of the trilogy.
The problem is that far too often, his timing isn't on. It's hard to pinpoint the exact source of the pacing problems--they probably stem from a confluence of factors, but sometimes we travel through a wide morass of unfunny, somewhat weak sentimental material, sometimes scenes just go on too long, and sometimes the dramatic "beats" seem to be following a broken metronome--quite a few times my wife or I felt the urge to push the actors into their next lines or actions.Read more ›
Apparently someone wanted to recreate the glory of the original film, 'Angels In The Outfield'. This movie is far from the original. I don't understand why people just can't leave a good movie be and not make a so-called sequel.
I bought 'Angels In The Infield' as a combo pack with the original 'Angels In The Outfield' and 'Angels In The Endzone' plus another movie I haven't watched yet. I was thinking well, since this is a sequel to the original movie, I thought why not give it a try? Well, I was stupid to buy it. It's a low budget film, sadly. With horrible acting and visual effects. 'Angels In The Endzone' is somewhat of a sequel to 'Angels In The Outfield' but it is WAY BETTER than 'Angels In The Infield'.
To anyone who wants to buy this horrible sequel movie, I implore you NOT TO! You'll be disappointed that you wasted your money. There will never ever be as good a baseball movie as 'Angels In The Outfield', even if they make more sequels. If you want a good movie go and buy the original movie if you haven't watched it or you don't have it already. You could also buy 'Angels In The Endzone'. It wasn't a bad movie at all.
