Angels In the Outfield
(out of 5)
|Angels in the Outfield involves 11-year-old
foster child, Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt),
who prays to become part of a family. However, in order for his father
to come back and claim Roger, the "Angels must win the pennant."
Roger takes the dry remark from his father seriously, and prays for the
Angels' losing streak to morph into a winning streak instead. Thus,
God steps in and brings down angels to help The Angels win their
way to the top.
The cast performs quite well considering I got choked up a couple of times during the movie. When The Angels finally work their way up to the final game of the season, I became
so engrossed in the game, I was cheering for The Angels myself.
The special effects are not spectacular, but the cool background tunes will make the overall effect pretty believable. I especially loved the climax of the film when the pitcher of The Angels (Tony Danza) pitches his last ball in order for The Angels to win the game. Whether you are a fan of baseball, comedies, or family films, this hit is definitely a home run.
