(1992) In a spirited, often amusing drama about the formation of a women’s professional baseball league during World War II, the narrative follows the course of a season with a team whose odd assortment of players includes sibling rivals (Geena Davis and Lori Petty), a backwoods slugger (Megan Cavanagh), streetwise fielders (Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell), and a washed-up rummy as manager (Tom Hanks). Directed by Penny Marshall, the story uses the baseball diamond as an arena of team solidarity and personal self-discovery rather than as an ideological soapbox, though its feminist perspective is abundantly evident. A few mild sexual references, some vulgar language, and occasional tasteless humor, including a toilet joke. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) Showtime (cable)
