A review of ‘Angels in the Outfield’ 26 years in the making

I went into Angels in the Outfield wanting to hate it, but it still managed to tug at my heartstrings at various points.

I never saw the movie when it came out — the 1994 version, not the 1951 Angels in the Outfield, though I never saw that one either. I’ve seen various highlights over the years — the flapping of the arms, Christopher Lloyd bending the foul pole, Tony Danza’s interesting pitching motion — but for the most part the movie foreign to me, and after I missed the theater run it just sort of disappeared into the ether.
