ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD (1994) **

In this totally pointless and unnecessary remake to the 1951 Disney classic, Danny Glover stars as the hothead manager of the last place California Angels, whose team miraculously gets some help from above to win the pennant.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the kid who gets heavenly guidance from an angel named “Al” (Christopher Lloyd) who helps the team and a terminally ill pitcher (Tony Danza) find faith.  The overblown and cheesy CGI Angel effects are groan inducing, but it’s just harmless family entertainment.  Lloyd and Danza were also on Taxi together.  Director William Dear also did Harry and the Hendersons.  Followed by Angels in the Endzone.
