  • msmichel's rating of the film Angels in the Outfield

    Classic Americana about the ole' pastime featuring a perfectly cast Paul Douglas as a baseball coach with a filthy mouth and an attitude to match who is suddenly given a chance to shine with some celestial help from above. Janet Leigh charming though wasted in the second half. As all the elements of corn but somehow affecting despite it. Worth a rediscovery.
