A League of Their Own

A League of Their Own

Rated: PG

Year: 1992

Cast: Geena Davis, Tom Hanks

During World War II, a candy mogul gets the sweet idea to pitch the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Meet Dottie and Kit, two sisters recruited for the Rockford Peaches. Not only are the girls fresh-faced catches, but they can really play, hit, pitch, catch, and run. Among their feisty teammates: Rosie O'Donnell and Madonna.

What Parents Like: Hanks delivers his double entendres with zest as the tough, wise-cracking coach who drank away his professional career, and must start again from the bottom.

What Kids Like: Youngsters will relate to the sibling rivalry between the sisters, as when Kit jokes, "This is our daughter, Dottie, and this is our other daughter, Dottie's sister."
