Synopsis

During World War II when all the men are fighting the war, most of the jobs that were left vacant because of their absence were filled in by women. The owners of the baseball teams, not wanting baseball to be dormant indefinitely, decide to form teams with women. So scouts are sent all over the country to find women players. One of the scouts, passes through Oregon and finds a woman named Dottie Hinson, who is incredible. He approaches her and asks her to try out but she's not interested. However, her sister, Kit who wants to get out of Oregon, offers to go. But he agrees only if she can get her sister to go. When they try out, they're chosen and are on the same team. Jimmy Dugan, a former player, who's now a drunk, is the team manager. But he doesn't feel as if it's a real job so he drinks and is not exactly doing his job. So Dottie steps up.

For me, a very beautiful and inspiring movie

Despite the fact of this movie was exhibited on screens in 1992 or 93, I've just saw it on TV in my country only a few days ago. In fact, it isn't the first time it is exhibited, but for one reason or other I've never had seen it. And I've to say that "A League Of Their Own" really touched me. In my country, unlike other Latinamerican like Venezuela, Puerto Rico and -- if I'm not wrong -- Cuba, baseball isn't a popular game, like soccer or tennis. It's played only in some clubs by American citizens or Chilean who lived in the U.S. and learned to play and love it. However, for me the ignorance of the baseball rules is not important, but the fact of that the subjects treated in this movie are universal: fight for a dream and achieve it, solidarity (how beautiful the scene when one of the players teaches to read the one who doesn't know, using a "little hot" short-novel), friendship, hope, dignity and the spirit of trying to be always better. From now on, this movie has become one of my favorites, with some other like "Steel Magnolias" and "Fried Green Tomatoes". Beautiful ones, inspiring, with no-violence and giving a positive message good for our spirits, no matter the zone of the world where you live because, like I've already said, its message is universal: the hope on reaching your dreams and be a better person. And I think that it's marvelous in a world like the present, that sometimes turns so hard to live in. I believe also that it isn't necessary to be American or have had friends or relatives involved in a terrible conflict like the 2nd W.W. to understand this movie. Finally, I'm sorry for my not good English and, if possible, I beg from someone who had had the patience to read this lines up to this point, some additional information about the female baseball league of the United States. I will appreciate it, really. And friendly greetings from Chile, proudly the world's southernmost country!!. (and very friendly with foreigners, too. Visit us, we're waiting for you!!)

As much a movie with Téa Léoni as with Madonna (vhs)

This is not Dick Tracy 2! Sure Madonna delivers a nice song, but during the movie, she has not a big part: i don't remember to see her playing the ball actually because she is rather here to have fun, dance, seduce boys and talk with a big mouth (so it's not really acting from her). That's why she is as essential as Téa Léoni who appears in two plays for her team ... The movie is more about Geena Davis and Tom Hanks; Honestly i expected the movie to be enjoyable all the more that the 40s period is well done but however, it is not he case: the pace is terribly dull, Hanks is really not cool here and there is not much good scenes... Maybe the ending with the true players redeems a bit the quality but otherwise, it's too late and too little...

I couldn't quite give it a 7

Good movie except for that I'm lost about Doris' attitude. She feels for Evelyn crying about the coach yelling at her for missing her cutoff man, pointing him to the hall to the locker room when the ump tosses him, and then walks by the dugout and makes fun of Kit for not being able to finish the game. Not only that but Kit understandably retaliates by nailing her in the head with her glove, only for HER to take offense for some reason by firing her water in her face. She insists Kit "not start with her" when Kit pursues her. How in the world is Kit starting with her? Is Doris on drugs? Finally, the coach hauls KIT off to the showers to "cool off" after brawling with her. So again, I'm lost.
