Warning: Spoilers
Story of the formation of the first professional female baseball league, during World War II.

Playing rounders for a living is a tough job - but someone's gotta do it. And, in 1943 America, with Joe DiMaggio and co off fighting Gerry, it was down to the womenfolk to keep the sport of baseball ticking over.

As it happens, the All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League became popular enough that it survived for a further eight years after the War came to an end. But 'A League of Their Own' tells the story of those first pioneers to replace their oven gloves with catcher's mitts, as it were.

Central to the tale are the sisters Dottie and Kit (Geena Davis and Lori 'Tank Girl' Petty), who are plucked from their jobs as milk maids to join the ranks of the newly-formed Rockford Peaches. Among their more prominent team-mates are Rosie O'Donnell as the burly no-messing Doris, Megan Cavanaugh as gorilla-faced hard-hitter Marla, and good ol' Madonna as the yo-yo-drawered Mae 'All-The-Way' Mordabito.

But it's largely the presence and performance of Tom Hanks as washed-up Major League hero Jimmy Dugan that lifts this a cut above the average sport movie. Dugan's a boozer and a cynic, but he's also got a bit of heart, and gradually begins to take his job as Peaches manager more and more seriously - so much so, in fact, that by the end of the movie he even knows some of his players' names. Now that's dedication! Hanks also gets all of the funniest lines in this solid and, for the most part, entertaining feel-gooder. It's also an interesting story that's being told, although it inevitably contains practically every cliché we've come to expect from sports flicks, from the easily-categorized team "characters" to the big end-of-season-game climax. The film also gets bogged down in mushiness in the final stages, when we're reminded that the whole thing's being told in flashback and are returned to the modern day reunion of the girls, now all old biddies of course. Look out for the dodgy bit of dubbing involved in putting Geena Davis' voice over the lip-movements of old Lynn Cartwright in the role of "Older Dottie".

Mario Party 3 (2000 Video Game)
not a bad game
28 June 2005
I didn't mind playing Mario Parrty 3, but i have got to say that it is no way near as good as the original which is the first ever Mario Party that was released on Nintendo 64. I do like Mario Party, I played the 4th Mario Party game which was the first ever Mario Party game to be released on the console Nintendo Gamecube. Now there are 6 Mario party games and I've only played Mario Party, Mario Party 3, and Mario Party 4. I would like to play Mario Party 2, Mario Party 5 and Mario Party 6. I wonder if the will ever be another Msrio Party game, Mario Party 7. I'm sure there will be. I also would like to see another mario Sunshine game. Mario Sunshine 2. That would be cool because I did enjoy playing on Mario Sunshine. I give Mary Party 3 7 out of 10.

fantastic
27 June 2005
I watched Puppies for sale for the first time in 2005, i searched for this movie every where and i was happy that finally i found the movie. I look for very very hard movies and it does take time, all you have to do is keep trying, never ever give up or you won't be able to see what you want to see. Try is the answer. I found a hard link to this and it was hard to find: www.goodnewsbroadcast.com/puppiesforsale.ram And i must say, I absolutely fell in love with this movie, the puppies were so sweet, it is a shame that puppies for sale wasn't made into a longer movie, it would have been great for this to be a proper heart warming movie. So great. jack Lemmon is my favourite actor and as many movies i have seen him in, i near say anything bad about his work, he is truly a heart warming, kind, gentle actor i have ever seen and i like people like that. I give puppies for sale 10 out of 10 because it is such a heart warming movie, I could watch it over and over again. It touches you heart and makes it gentle and warm.

Dad (2005 TV Movie)
10/10
A good piece of drama
25 February 2005
This piece of drama was totally different to what i was expecting, as i thought it was going to be like the move Dad which stars Jack Lemmon and Ted Danson, I did enjoy this piece of drama as there was some good actors in it. I felt sorry for Richard Briers character as he was an old man who wanted things to be put right, for his wife and for himself. Things started to get worse for him after his accident, his wife ended up in a home and he was worried about her as he noticed that there were bruises on her arm, he wanted to look after her on his own, out of the home she was put in, The son was a right prat because he abused his own father, he was drived mad about his dad, wanting to do things he wanted but didn't get that, I felt sorry for the old man and almost cried, it was a weired ending as i thought they have should of done it better, to make it a happy ending. I enjoyed it, but felt sad towards the end. i give it 7 out of 10.

Who Will Love My Children? (1983 TV Movie)
10/10
One of the best tear jerker i have ever seen
5 January 2005
Who will love my children has changed my heart, it made me cry all the way through, the most i cried with was when the family had to say goodbye to the baby, i cried the most with that, and each time a child was adopted, i cried when they had to say goodbye to their mother, it was sad for them to lose their mother, I felt sorry for the kid with epilepsy, i was glad he was adopted by the same family as one of his brothers. To me that boy i thought was the special one because he was going in a home. I feel that i am special because i am in a world with Aspergers Syndrome and sometimes when i feel down, i sometimes like to cry. I really enjoyed this movie, 10 out of 10. A true story, very good. Another movie that would bring tears to your eyes i think would haver to be Tuesday's With Morrie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0207805)

WWF Over the Edge (1999 TV Special)
10/10
God Bless you Owen
17 December 2004
I will never forget what happened to Owen, it was a shocking moment to what had happened to him. He will always be remembered by his fans, friends and family etc: In my opinion it must have been the shocking moment of 1999, the worlds shocking moment of that year. He was such a good wrestler and loved by his fans, friends and family. He will always be in the hearts of us and all we have left of him now, is the memories and the videos of what he was in to do with wrestling, I heard about the rumours about making a movie based on Owen Hart's life. And his wife gave the creators her permission to make the movie. I will always remember Owen the way her was and i hope that goes for the rest of you who were fans of him. God Bless you Owen, and thank you for the good times you gave us.

excellent
4 December 2004
I thought Pinocchio 3000 was an excellent movie, Based on the Disney Movie Pinocchio, as this time this one is set in the future, for Pinocchio to be a robot instead of a wooden doll, i liked what was put into the movie as it was just like what the future would be like, cars, vans, etc: floating in the sky, everything that is set well into the future. In the year 3000, the 31st Century. Whoopi Goldburg is an excellent actress in my opinion, she has been for many decades. I never thought she would star in a movie that is animated and based on the same thing that's been made before. Overall i give this movie 10 out of 10 because i think it is fantastic. If i were you, go ahead and see this movie. You will be surprised with the difference.

good, but 1st is better
30 October 2004
Poltergeist II: The other side i think was a good movie as the sequel, but i reckon the original, Poltergeist has to be the best because it's what started the trilogy and i enjoyed the gore, the violence and strobe light in the movie, made in 1982, i thought it was quite effective with the grpahics. I thought this one was less frightening because to me i think the creators decided to take the frighteness down abit as well, i would think the first one shocked everyone as this what happened to The Exorcist and then the 2nd one came out. I give Poltergeist II 7 out of 10. I was very sad to hear about Heather O Rourke as she died during the filming of Poltergeist III, it was a shock to everyone and to the cast that starred in the movie. However, Poltergeist III was dedicated to Heather as it was her Last Movie.

Happy Happy Halloween, Silver Shamrock
30 October 2004
Halloween 3: Season of the witch is totally a complete different story in the halloween series, based on the season of the witch and is the odd halloween movie as this one is not based on Michael Myers. This movie was made in 1982, i first watched in 22 years later (2004) as i never heard or seen this movie before, I thought that this movie was OK, the music to the silver shamrock, HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN, HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN, SILVER SHAMROCK, AND THEN WITH IT ADVERTISED DAYS BEFORE HALLOWEEN FALLS (31ST October) 8 MORE DAYS TO HALLOWEEN, 7 MORE DAYS TO HALLOWEEN, 2 MORE DAYS TO HALLOWEEN, AND THEN ON THE NIGHT THE HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN COMES ON WHEN LOTS AND LOTS OF CHILDREN ARE BUYING THE SILVER SHAMROCK HALLOWEEN MASKS. To me, i think Halloween 3: Season of the witch has got to be the least best movie in the halloween series because Halloween is mainly based on about the serial killer Michael Myers, i think it was a bit of a show off with Season of the witch coming out because i thought it spoilt it and then halloween 4 was released and it was back to the plot with Michael Myers on the loose again and killing more of his victims. i give Halloween 3: Season of the witch 5 out of 10.

Fantastic
6 September 2004
The Land Before Time 10: The Great Longneck Migration i think is a fantastic movie. This was made in 2003, after 16 years (1988 - 2004) there is still more the land before time movies coming out, THE LAND BEFORE TIME = 1988 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 2: THE GREAT VALLEY ADVENTURE 1994 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 3: THE TIME OF THE GREAT GIVING = 1995 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 4: JOURNEY THROUGH THE MISTS = 1996 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 5: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND = 1997 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 6: THE SECRET OF SAURUS ROCK = 1998 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 7: THE STONE OF COLD FIRE 2000 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 8: THE BIG FREEZE = 2001 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 9: JOURNEY TO BIG WATER = 2002 THE LAND BEFORE TIME 10: THE GREAT LONGNECK MIGRATION = 2003

Yet there is more the land before time movies to be released.

THE LAND BEFORE TIME 11 = 2004

The 11th title has been rumoured with a title called: INVADING THE TINYSAURUS. Also one of the cast has rumoured that THE LAND BEFORE TIME 12 is in the greenlit. I have enjoyed watching the 10th installment of the land before time. I am looking forward to see the 11th title when it does come out, hopefully in December as there has been no news just yet on the land before time 11. Hopefully there will be some news. I give THE LAND BEFORE TIME 10. 10 OUT OF 10.

Tarzan & Jane (2002 Video)
10/10
a good movie
3 August 2004
Tarzan and Jane i think is another good disney movie, this one didn't go to the cinemas and it was decided to go straight to video instead. This movie carries on with what was left at the end of the first animated movie (Tarzan (1999) This movie was made in 2002, based with the same background (The Jungle) and the same characters and also featuring new kind of characters. I did like this movie because it was quite funny and it was from Disney which i think is a great company and the company make excellent movies from Disney, Disney was carried on after Walt Disney died in the 60's, i was glad for this to carry on because after Walt's death, there has been some more fantastic movies that came out in the 1970, 1980's, 1990's and 2000's. In 2000, there was another movie based on Walt's fantastic work, Fantasia 2000 was the movie to mark the 60th anniversary as the first Fantasia movie was made in 1940. I hope there will be a 3rd Fantasia movie as i think the graphics are amazing and brilliant. Over all i give Tarzan and Jane 10 out of 10.

a very good movie
3 August 2004
Lady and the tramp ii: scamp's adventure i think is a good movie but i think the first lady and the tramp movie is better because it is the original and i would think that the original movies compared to the sequeals is better. Lady and the tramp ii takes off after the original, but this time it's junior's turn, Lady and Tramp's youngster (scamp) always hates been treated with the things that has to be done with him, following the rules in the house, taking baths all the time and taking things nice and easy, scamp gets angry and runs away with a pack of dogs that are left off the loose. Scamp meets another dog called Angel, they both get along fine and do the things scamp's mother and father did, having an italian meal (Spagetthi and Meatballs etc:)Afterwards, Scamp realises that he is loved by his family especial his pal, which is the baby, scamp comes back and Angel is joined in the family. I give this movie 10 out of 10.

Robin Hood (1973)
fantastic
3 August 2004
Robin Hood i think is another fantastic disney animated movie. This movie was made in 1973, i always thought that this robin hood movie was made in the early 1960's, but i've found out that i was wrong, it came out in 1973, making this as of 2004, 31 years old. Besides having Robin hood as an animated movie, there has been a series of Robin hood and other movies, but making them live as for real, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was made in 1991, with the best, the longest running soundtrack: Bryan Adams: Everything i do (I do it for you) The song spent an unbelieveable 16 weeks in the chart in the uk, making this the most amount of weeks for a record to be spent at the top of the uk chart singles, i've never every seen anything spending that amount of weeks in my life, but in 1994, a group called wet wet wet made their amount of weeks with the song love is all around, from the movie 4 wedding and a funeral, making that spending 15 weeks at the top of the charts. If you like this robin hood movie, then i'm sure you will love the live movies, the prince of thieves and men in tights.

great movie
3 August 2004
Lady and the tramp i think is a fantastic animated movie. This movie was made in 1955, about a lady dog and his tramp, i liked every minute of this movie, 46 years after this movie, Lady and the tramp ii: Scamp's adventure was released in 2001, continuing what was left off after the end of lady and the tramp. I really liked how lady first became a puppy and she yapped yapped yapped when she was on her own and she wanted to be with her mother and father (the parents who bought the little puppy) and at the end she was allowed up the stairs and sleep with the parents, she was no longer alone after that, then soon she grew up and became a young lady. I give this movie 10 out of 10.

The Lion King 1 1/2 (2004 Video)
good, but the first one is the best of the rest.
27 July 2004
The Lion King 3 or 1 1/2 as it's known to some other countries i think is good, i found this movie very intresting because it told us what Simba got up to when his father died and when he ran away from pride rock as his uncle scar told him to run away and never ever return. Simba meets too other animals called Tiom and Pumbaa who i think are funny and got a sense of humour together. When Simba joined in the fun with the two little rascals, to me it feels like Simba had a new set of parents who would look after him and watch him all the time (Keeping an eye on him and watching him all the time, just to keep him safe) This movie was sort of based with the lion king as there were scenes what we didn't see, how simba grew up step by step as in the lion king we only saw him as a young cub and then an adult, in the lion king 3, there was sort of a middle with simba as he was half cub and half adult (To me it means that he was in the middle of becoming an adult and out growing his young stage) This movie was brilliant and i give it 10 out of 10.

another spectacular movie
27 July 2004
An Extremely Goofy Movie i think is another Spectacular movie to watch, i think it's just as good as the first, the movie sets off with Max now older and ready to go to college, a life time freedom away from his dad. Max wants to have a life of his own, goofy really doesn't want his son Max to grow up, but at the end of the day, everyone has to grow up and face the world with complicated things to solve and harder work. Max had to go to college to get himself an excellent education, but his education is interupted when Goofy etends at college himself, really so that he can be with his son and spend time with him, goofy gets pushed into a gang of bullies to help them beat Max and his time on skate boarding. But the team end up drawing as an accident happens, At the end, Goofy is crowned as a professor as he wears the black hat with the string beside it. I give this movie 10 out of 10.

When Fred Met Wilma
27 July 2004
The Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas i think is a good movie but not as good as the orignal one (The Flintstones (1994) The movie is based before the original, and to me it's an idea just like the 2nd movie to Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry met Lloyd. In this 2nd movie of the flintsones, it's based on with Fred meeting Wilma and Barney meeting Betty. They all set off to Viva Las Vegas, to enjoy themselves and to do whatever they want to do. When Fred proposes to Wilma, they both find a house (That white rock house, in the original movie) In this movie, there were actors who i haven't seen before, the one that played Barney, i've never ever seen him in any other movies, i the only actors in this movie who i've seen before is Joan collins who played Wilma's mother, the guy who played Fred, he's comes from York which is a place i know so well, the woman who played Wilma, i think she was from the series 3rd Rock From The Sun. Those are the actors who i know. I give this movie 10 out of 10.

Tarzan (1999)
10/10
fantastic
27 July 2004
Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr That is the main phrase of what Tarzan uses when trouble is about to come. I did enjoy this movie, every minute of it, it was made in 1999, i think it was is the first ever tarzan movie to be made into a catoon and to be made by Disney. I you like this movie then i am pretty sure you will like Tarzan and Jane because that concludes the next part of Tarzan of what he gets up to this time in the jungle and what missions he does. I give this movie 10 out of 10 because i think it's brilliant. I hope they will make a 3rd Tarzan movie, it would be great to see Tarzan as a daddy. Who know what the future will hold, i hope there will be another movie because Tarzan is so cool.

A Goofy Movie (1995)
10/10
fantastic
27 July 2004
Warning: Spoilers
A goofy movie i think is a fantastic movie to watch for the kids and for the adults as well. This movie was made in 1995 with our character of course Goofy, I would have never thought that Goofy was a father as he was a father to his son caled Max, who is just a kid in this movie, The movie starts with Goofy wanting to have a jolly good time with his son max, as he decides to go on holiday taking max with him and enjoy a fishing trip. Max sulks as he doesn't want to go on this holiday with his dad, to me Max feels that his dad can be a big pain and can embarrass in front of his friends. The two mouses hardly get along when something happens which makes the who holiday from bad to worse, they finally make it up to each other as they both become like a proer father and son together. I give this movie 10 out of 10.

The Lion King (1994)
10/10
excellent
27 July 2004
I absolutely love the lion king, i think it's the king of all animal disney movies, a lot of people enjoyed this movie and it was a great movie for the creators to make. This movie was made in 1994, there were a few singers who i can think of who ttok part in making a song for the movie to put it to the sound track collection: Tina Turner, Elton John. I was only 7 years old when this movie came out, i give this movie 10 out of 10 because i think it's a brillaint, and one of the best disney movies i have ever seen in my childhood life. If you did like the lion king, then i hope you did like the other 2 movies, the lion king 2: simba's pride (1998) and the lion king 1, 1/2: Hakuna Matahta.

The District (2000–2004)
great series
9 July 2004
i first heard about this show the year it was finishing (2004) i never knew nothing about it, as i watched it i saw a fimilar face, Craig T Nelson i remembered from the 2 Poltergeist movies. He looks great for a 60 year old now. I think he's a good actor and has done a great job with his work on tv and movies. I've only seen him in 3 things, which are Poltergeist, Poltergeist II: The other side and the District. I think the District is a fantastic series. It's a shame to see it finishing this year in 2004, only 4 years this show has been on, it started in 2000, i give this programme 10 out of 10 because i think it's a great programme to watch. Thank you Craig for doing a great series of this.

Twister (1996)
excellent
3 July 2004
i think Twister is a fantastic movie to watch. This movie was made in 1996, starring of course Bill Paxon and Helen Hunt. The movie is about a tornado heading for town and is about to destroy the town by destroying buildings (Houses, offices, and other types of buildings) Everyone has to get out of the town quick and fast before it will become too late. I first saw this movie a few years ago after it was released in 1996. The movie is certificated as a PG (Which stands for Parental Guidence)I give this movie 10 out of 10 because i think it's a good movie and i think it is better than the other movies which have tornados in them. If you like this, then i am sure you will like the movie Tornado which i think is another good movie.
