A League of Their Own - 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Truly, since I was a kid in 1992 this is still one my favourite feel good movies.

Mixing in a bit of little known history, about the Woman's Baseball League that ran from 1943-1954, and adding in an engaging storyline with fun, warm characters well played by the cast (even Madonna is good in this one!) it's completely entertaining from the start right up to the great finale.

A good extras package as well, as there's a commentary with cast and crew, 37 minutes of (often substantial) deleted scenes with intro by director Penny Marshall, a 52 minute nine part making of and a 12 minute reunion featurettes alongside the Madonna 'Playground' video. Great stuff!

It took a while to get into this film. Probably as I wasn't in the mood for it. But on second watching, it really grew and bloomed.
Bassed on real people and events it is somewhat of a mixed bag of goodies.
Fabulously presented as a story and interesting look into a bygone era, my only big grip are the 80's hair styles rejigged to look sort of 40s.
I also wasn't holding out much hope of seeing Maddona do a good job in the film, but actually she came across very well.
80s style filming and acting and indeed, overall styles grate on me big time. But seeing through this and engaging with a real story of struggle, of challenge, of descrimination, of winning through really came out with a bright light. So too where the older representations of the young baseball players gathering together for a reunion.
The documentaries of the actual players, their story and what they had to go through is also a treasure to be hold.
All in all a really well presented production with some very authentic and heart rendering moments during an uncertain time in history, where the USA did what it could to retain a sense of normal.

I have wanted to buy the DVD for ages especially when madonna is in it she may not be an actress or much of one but her presence is enough it is based on a true story of women who form a baseball team during ww2 in the USA and the pre Forrest Gump Tom Hanks I am sure other film fans would like to watch it I am more than happy to recommend this film

Top film really doesn't need reviewing - The product does however - please be aware this is a Sony Pictures release - the UV code (boasting plays anywhere) doesn't work on the Flixster App on Apple IOS devices - this is becoming an increasing issue with Sony and Warner Bros titles - they will play on a computer browser via the Sony Store website and will download to Flixster but the download will have a 'playback unavailable' message on it...i've taken it up with the studio's who are clearly aware of this issue but just royally fob you off with a list of UV compatible partners none of which have apps available in the UK Apple store....this UV is also not available/compatible with the talk talk TV app. I do not know if this UV works on Flixster on android devices.....If you are buying this just for the UV copy and you have an ipad/iphone save your money and buy a copy from the Apple store....can't fault the Blu Ray itself but it's shocking that Studio's get away with marketing UV copies as play anywhere which they know clearly don't.

The drunk and the babes.

It's 1943 and Baseball in the states has been decimated by all the men called up to join the services. Enter the ladies who themselves help to kick start a womens league to keep the Baseball fires burning.

The first thing any prospective first time viewer of this piece should note, is that it's not actually a film about Baseball. It's about friendships, challenges, and differing off shoots to the complications of war, it just so happens that it's the game of Baseball that brings it all together! Directed by Penny Marshall (Big), screenplay by Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel (City Slickers/Parenthood) and featuring Tom Hanks {wonderful as drunken coach Dugan} as the leading male, it's no surprise that A League Of Their Own booms with sentiment and no little amount of comedy. It is to me a very rewarding picture, the sort that wants you to chuckle along with it whilst noting the need for human interaction during a troubled time. The lady actors do great impressions of bona fide athletes, asked to parade in short skirts and entertain the watching public, these gals, led by the always engaging Geena Davis, deliver a sparky picture that never veers into maudlin territory. There are of course some sombre moments, but they are placed nicely by Marshall in the context of the films events, never trite, they serve more as tender vignettes to run alongside the frivolity on offer. Ultimately A League Of Their Own achieves its aims come the final credits, its not taxing and its not purporting to be an intelligent look at a period in history. It's asking us the viewers to feel heartened by what we just watched, and just maybe to give those girls back in the 1940s a piece of our respect, job done. 7/10

True life story.

Nothing to dislike about a film depicting true events surrounding women's baseball during WWll when most male players were involved in the war. Excellent performances from the lead actors in a time when there was so much prejudice against women in sport.

Always enjoyed this film, the story loosely based on actual history when American baseball was kept alive by the women's game. Nice nostalgic look back with sentemental touches, a real feelgood movie.

A great film well worth watching. Story still rings true today.

The story of the first all female baseball league during the second war. The real story of how the females kept the game going while the male professionals were drafted into service. Very moving in places and a great part played by Tom Hanks.
