** The whole "Real Angels" deal being rejected also makes no sense since this is set in the USA, where the overwhelming majority of people are Christians. Christians not believing in heavenly help is just silly.

** The whole "Real Angels" deal being rejected also makes no sense since this is set in the USA, where the overwhelming majority of people are Christians. Christians not believing in heavenly help is just silly. The arbitrary distinction is lampshaded by Maggie at the sanity hearing.
---> '''Maggie:''' When a professional football player drops to one knee to thank God for making a touchdown, nobody laughs at that. Or when a pitcher crosses himself before going to the mound, no one laughs at that either. It's like you're saying it's okay to believe in God, but it's not okay to believe in angels.

[[Bowdlerize]]: George Knox accuses his players of having their "heads up [their] butts." TV airings change this to "screwed on backwards."

* CaliforniaDoubling: Oakland Coliseum (in [=NorCal=]) stands in for Anaheim Stadium (in [=SoCal=]) for logistical reasons. At the time, Anaheim Stadium was a complete closed-off stadium due to upper deck seating in the outfield, so there would've been no way for the kids to peep into the game from the outside. The Angels' stadium is also located in a business area, while the Coliseum is in more of a residential location, where it would make sense that Roger could see the stadium from his house.

* CueTheFlyingPigs: Roger's dad's quip of him and Roger getting back to becoming a family again "maybe when the Angels win the pennant" was meant to be the equivalent of "when pigs fly", seeing as how at the All-Star Break (a little after the mid-point of the season) the Angels were dead last and mired in a 15-game losing streak[[note]]For reference, the all-time longest losing streak in the AL is owned by the 1988 Baltimore Orioles, who started their season 0-21[[/note]]. Roger [[InnocentInaccurate thought he was being literal]] and prayed to God for this to happen. [[spoiler: Subverted when Roger's dad officially gives up custody and walks out of the courtroom just as Roger enters despite the Angels' sudden turaround in the standings.]]

*** There was also a point in the movie where the divine intervention didn't show. Knox sees an amazing play made, and starts making the Angel Sign happily... only for Roger to shrug, meaning that wasn't an angel's doing. Knox is understandably shocked.

** In all fairness, the new version just had them lending a hand, so to speak. They don't influence every play of every game and explictly don't show up at all for the championship.

--> '''George Knox''': One more loss! One more loss which could've been a win! You call yourselves ''professionals''. I have never, ever seen a worse group of twenty-five players! You don't think as a team, you don't play as a team, you don't even ''LOSE'' as a team! You've all got your heads so far up your ''butts'', you can't even see the light of day! One more loss and I'll...and I'll do this... (throws a chair at a rack of bats) to each and every one of you! (...) I want you ''here'' in uniform at nine tomorrow! We're going back to work on ''fundamentals''!
