Synopsis


Angels in the Outfield
Updated from the 1951 film of the same name, Angels In The Outfield takes liberties with the original to bring sentimental values to a modern setting. Roger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a foster child whose irresponsible father promises to get his act together when Roger's favorite baseball team, the California Angels, wins the pennant. The problem is that the Angels are in last place, so Roger prays for help to turn the team around. Sure enough, his prayers are answered in the form of angel Al (Christopher Lloyd), and, before you know it, the Angels' bitter manager (Danny Glover) is watching in amazement as his team starts making the plays -- with the help of angels visible to the audience only as glowing special effects. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

    Heartwarming, Uplifting and Inspiring

    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 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.

    I wanted a lot of different things on my device, special signature box etc. My geek squad tech, Krystal, was knowledgeable, helpful and much more patient than I would have been. She added everything I asked for and even suggested a few other things. I continue a happy and satisfied customer and I'm probably not the easiest person to work with. Thank you Krystal and BB.

    This is one of those movies you will watch with you kids for the rest of your lives. It is fun and encouraging. Emotions run high as in many Disney flicks and you couldn't ask for a better ending! If you have children ages 5 and above this will make for a good family time!

    I can remember seeing this in the theater with my mom as a kid. I just like having it on hand, too bad I couldn't find it on blu ray. It's baseball and Disney. A great combination!!
