Review

Our Score
A year before he won his first Oscar, Tom Hanks provided the laughs as an alcoholic ex-professional hired to coach a women's baseball team during the Second World War in this comedy drama. The assembled players include Geena Davis and Tank Girl's Lori Petty as sisters, Madonna as (of course) the team floozy and comedian Rosie O'Donnell as her best friend. Penny Marshall, who also directed Hanks in Big, has put together a somewhat uneven film, but any roughness is smoothed over by the talented cast and a great deal of charm and affection for the era.

Summary

An alcoholic former professional player reluctantly agrees to train an all-female baseball team during the Second World War. With star player Dottie Hinson and her sister Kit on board, they look set to dominate the league - until sibling rivalry rears its head. Comedy drama, starring Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Tom Hanks and Madonna.
