Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna star in this major-league comedy from the team that brought you Big. Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943, while the male pros are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl team. Jon Lovitz adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the baseball dolly with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O'Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail, on the fields and off, for generations of athletes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A League of Their Own is a tenderhearted tale of camaraderie based on the real-life 1940s All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks, it has strong messages of teamwork, compassion, and "girl power" and offers relatable female characters who throw fastballs right through the gender stereotypes of their day. Expect some innuendo and sex talk (Madonna's character is referred to as "All the Way Mae") and a bit of swearing ("s--t," "penis with a hat on"), as well as drinking (Hanks' character is often drunk) and smoking. Men admire the girls in their skimpy uniforms. Some sexual references: "pickle tickle," comment about girls being better suited for sex than baseball, reference to "the clap." Shots of women in their underwear. A drunk coach urinates in front of the women (no nudity). Some sensual dancing. There's also some wartime sadness/stress, but ultimately this is a great story for tweens and up.
