Consensus: Sentimental and light, but still thoroughly charming, A League of Their Own is buoyed by solid performances from a wonderful cast.

League wants you to laugh more than anything else, and Hanks makes sure that you will.

Few of the other performers make an impression. A director who can lose Madonna in a crowd can't be said to appreciate charisma.

It is not Great Cinema, but it's really freaking good entertainment, smart without being brainy and nice without being saccharine.

Though amusing enough to avoid absolutely drowning in schmaltz, it's sad to see a film with potential lose its way in the late innings.

Hits about .250 with a few RBI, but more than its share of strikeouts.

A light-hearted story with a marginally-talented cast (e.g., Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell, Jon Lovitz, Lori Petty, Geena Davis -- not real powerhouse actors).… More
