Remake of the 1951 fantasy about a lowly baseball team who, along with some heavenly animated help find themselves on a winning streak. The new lineup includes Glover as manager of the hapless California Angels, Danza as a washed-up pitcher, and Lloyd as captain of the celestial spirits. Gordon-Levitt plays the foster child who believes he'll get his family back together if the Angels win the pennant. Familar ground still yields good, heartfelt family fare. Oakland A's third baseman Carney Lansford served as technical advisor, molding actors into fair semblance of baseball team.

Surprisingly enough, I actually liked this little Disney remake--of course, I've never seen the original, but still.. It's almost charming in its own cutesy syrupy way. As per usual, Danny Glover elevates this film, and Tony Danza almost turns in a credible performance(Translation: He doesn't ruin the movie..how about that?)
If you need to revel in early 90's live action Disney nostalgia, go ahead, sit through this thing.
