In October, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will bring A League of Their Own to Blu-ray. Inspired by a true story, this sports comedy looks at the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League of 1943, which gave a group of spirited women a chance to shine while male baseball players were overseas fighting in World War II.
The film focuses on the Rockford Peaches team which springs from the League, and on the interplay between the Peaches' boozy, washed-up coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks, Saving Private Ryan) and Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis, Beetlejuice), a small-town dairy farmer whose terrific performances at bat put the team in the national consciousness even as they drive a wedge between Dottie and her less talented sister Kit (Lori Petty, Point Break).
The cover looks like one of those 3-movie cheapies, but still it has the same extras as the 2-disc Special Edition DVD--and I only have the single-disc edition. Off it goes to BB U&S--just in time for another Penny Marshall film pairing an acting legend with a singer-turned-actress, The Preacher's Wife. There's no crying in Blu-ray!
Can someone tell me if this will be region free ? was thinking about this the other day and thinking it was the 20th anniversary this year - how strange ! love this movie and Madonna was good in it too for once
How can Madonna at times pull of some great character performances like in Dick Tracy then follow that with this,TOTALLY 2 seperate kind of characters and if one didnt know better 2 seperate performances from 1 actress....THEN have movies like shanghai surprise and body of evidence? anyways,,,great film,great ensemble!
About time . I loooovvvvveeee this movie and its a pre ordered asap. I can't wait to hear my #1 Madonna song of all time " Used to be my playground" in dts and its the long version too. Good luck finding this version any where.
