The Babe

The Babe-  1992, Directed by Arthur Hiller, starring John Goodman, Kelly McGillis, and Bruce Boxleitner
He says- Agreeably sentimental, old-fashioned bio of the great Babe Ruth is largely a vehicle for Goodman, who's terrific in the lead.  Though facts are tampered with and often ignored, the essence of this larger-than-life character (and his genuine love of baseball) still comes through.  3 stars

I say-  This was a good movie.  I enjoyed John Goodman, and I thought his portrayal was great.  Really overly sappy in many spots, which got annoying.  Worth a watch if you're a baseball fan.  2 and a half stars
