      Peter Rainer Los Angeles Times A Disney-fied morality play complete with corn and sniffles. Jul 16, 2020 Full Review Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune See Little Big League instead. Rated: 1/4 Aug 16, 2017 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety Serves up its corn so unabashedly it's hard to take offense at its sappiness. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Jas Keimig The Stranger (Seattle, WA) All the players have to do is quit swearing and believe in themselves. How pious. Jan 11, 2022 Full Review John Ferguson Radio Times It's sickly sweet, but undemanding children may be entertained. Rated: 2/5 Jul 16, 2020 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot As a pleasant little summer diversion, "Angels in the Outfield'' is about what it should be.

      Michael S A fun 90s sports movie. Great for the family. The limited CGI actually holds up pretty good over the years. Lots of great actors and stars before they were stars. Disney needs to get back to this formula. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Alex M So many negative comments. It's a great little family movie. Sorry there is sad parts but that's real life. Great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Kool One of my favorite movies ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Joel H I enjoyed watching Angels in the Outfield when I was a kid, so seeing it again as an adult brought back a lot of nostalgic feelings. And I was able to share it with my children, as well. I doubt that Disney would make such a faith-centered film today, but there's such a sense of positivity to this story. I was also surprised by all of the famous faces. Of course, I remembered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Danny Glover, Christopher Lloyd, and Tony Danza, but I was shocked to see Matthew McConaughey and Adrien Brody in supporting roles. This movie is cheesy, yes, but watching it is such an uplifting experience. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review Matt H There is a reason why this movie is nearly impossible to stream in 2023 - because it references God, and rewards for morality. It isn't a suprising the critics bashed it, for these reasons. It is cheesy, yes - no question. But the 90's were cheesy in general, so it is expected. I greatly enjoyed rewatching this show, and my kids absolutely loved it. A breath of fresh air from all the junk that is currently being released. Watch it. You won't be sorry. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/10/23 Full Review red t The acting is ok overall along with a generic music score. The cinematography is well done with well framed shots but some of the special effects can be a bit out of place (Not really bad in themselves though). The editing is ok as this feels like a sports film and a religious movie tied together that doesn't really compliment each other. If you removed the spiritual element I feel this would be a much stronger and more cohesive narrative. This is a average paced film that never drags but never really builds tension or investment. It had some good moments in it though and nothing about it is truly broken. I'd say skip this unless your a real hardcore sports film fan or Danny Glover fan. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
