Angels in the Outfield Movie Review Summary

Actors: Danny Glover, Christopher Lloyd

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Angels in the Outfield

The California Angels are the perfect team to be portrayed in this film, because they are helped by actual angels. The heavenly angels agree to help the baseball Angels win the pennant because a fan of theirs wants to see his wish come true. Not only that, he wants a new family as well. Danny Glover and Christopher Lloyd give fantastic performances as, respectively, the Angels' manager and the head angel. The (Anaheim) Angels are later the feature team again, in a sequel called Angels in the Infield.

When Roger prays for angels he gets what he wants. His dad said he would pick him up from a foster home if the Angels in last place win the pennant. When the Angels help it turns into a funny life-touching story!
