Movie Reviews

Beautiful, Wonderful and Very Enjoyable
Santeria | Tallahassee | 04/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one film I am aiming to get on DVD. But even on VHS, this film sparkles. The cynical amazon review talks about the effects heavy side of the film, but I guess I must have seen another film, since I thought that the material was treated with respect, and done as unobtrusively as you can possibly do with the appearance of Angels.
The cast is excellent, and I feel that this film works in a great way, not simply because it is a Disney film. Forget the comments that slate this film as cheezy, or sugary... it is just plain wonderful.
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 very accessable 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.
Christopher Lloyd does a great job as the lead Angel, and the ancilliary Angels are great as well.
This is one immensely beautiful film."

"I loved this movie. I thought the acting was very strong and the story was inspiring. Roger and JP are two young boys living in a foster home under the care of the kindhearted Maggie. JP is your typical adorable and happy-go-lucky (for the most part) kid, but Roger is still hoping that his messed-up father will come back for him. Apparently, Roger's father tells him that he will only come back if the California Angels baseball team--the worst team in the league--wins the pennant. So, Roger becomes an instant fan, and he and JP begin to follow the team. Manager George Knox is bullheaded and about ready to pack up and leave until Roger starts to see angels who just might be able to carry the team where they need to go. All in all, it is just a very good film that has something powerful to say about having faith, pulling together as a team, and forming your own family bonds when the ones that you have are broken.I recommend this one 100%, and it is worth every cent of your money."
A WINNER! with a lot of heart

"Released in 1994 Angels is first rate entertainment. While hardened cynics may squirm, some may even be won over by it's charm. A lot of fun with good performances, especially Danny Glover,it is a first rate disney film with all the ingredients that make it a winner, especially 'heart'. In the same vein as 'Mighty Ducks' and 'Disneys the kid' Angels is right up there with the best of disney's 'feel good' family pics. Very low on crude language and themes, it is a film for the young, the young at heart, baseball fans, and anyone that wants to be uplifted for about an hour and a half. This is one of the films that crosses the boundries between traditional disney entertainment and modern disney, and deserves its place among other studio favorites. However in an attempt to capture its success later the studio produced movies like 'heavyweights',and 'The big green' which didnt even come close to this charmer."
