Episode 8 – A League of Their Own

“It’s time to play…BALL!”

Women playing Baseball?!?! Wha-wha-what???

I know it’s crazy, but follow me… At one time in history, a World War happened, well okay, the second time that happened… WW2 breaks out and business men decide that instead of losing money with their star athletes away and fighting in the war, that they’ll take the best women they can find from around the world, and have them play baseball. Let me just tell you this…oh how the comedy ensues! Who knew that misogyny was soooo entertaining???

Seriously though, we here at REEL 90 all agree that this is a really good movie, is abundant with quotable lines, and has a great re-watch factor.
