Remake of the 1951 fantasy about a lowly baseball team who, along with some heavenly animated help find themselves on a winning streak. The new lineup includes Glover as manager of the hapless California Angels, Danza as a washed-up pitcher, and Lloyd as captain of the celestial spirits. Gordon-Levitt plays the foster child who believes he'll get his family back together if the Angels win the pennant. Familar ground still yields good, heartfelt family fare. Oakland A's third baseman Carney Lansford served as technical advisor, molding actors into fair semblance of baseball team.

Two boys named Roger and J.P. are best friends and are in foster care together. They live near the Angels' stadium and sit up in a tree to watch the games. One day Roger's father comes to see him and explains that they won't be able to be together. Roger asks his dad when will they be together and he responds, "when the angels win the pennant". Roger then prays and asks for help for the Angels to win so he can move back home with his family. The angles do come to help the baseball team and after a fifteen game losing streak they start winning games and eventually win the pennant. The manager of the team George Knox (Danny Glover) is good friends with the boys and then decides to adopt them both. This is a really great movie with many great actors. This 1994 film is good for family viewing.
