Poorly-structured movie to TV remake
29 August 2010 | by (Fort Wayne/Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Mediocre movie-into-TV show creation. It seemed like the people who made this show read the names of the characters and a treatment of what it was about and then decided to make something else. There also seems to be a disconnect between the fact that women's baseball during the 1940's only lasted four years and what they intended to do w/ this program.

I don't which was more sad...the fact that the baseball was uninteresting or that for a show about women,starring women,its dialogue sounded like it was written by a man who'd never MET a woman.

Cary Lowell's presence in this makes it tolerable,but other than that,this show could be used as a classic example of why movies should remain movies and not be made into television programs.
