I really enjoyed this movie as a young kid. At that age I thought that
the silly baseball antics were funny and that the movie was "cool"
because of it's about sports. Now, several years later, I can look back
and see what a well designed movie this was. This movie opened my eyes
as a small child to the struggles other children dealt with and real
world issues. That kind of exposure is largely lacking in kids movies
these days which I don't think is to our society's benefit. Sure the
baseball antics seem really dumb now, but they drew kids in. No seven
year old is going to ask to see a movie about foster children, but they
will ask to see a movie about baseball. Disney realized this fact and
took advantage of it to teach these children an important lesson about
As a young adult the performance of Al and the other angels seems far less impressive, however I will give credit to the actors playing both children and Danny Glover who all did a fantastic job.
