YMMV: A League of Their Own
- Actor Allusion: Madonna is essentially playing a 1940s version of herself.
- Base Breaker: Kit. Some people see her as a Passionate Sports Girl and sympathethic unfavorite who overcame being Overshadowed by Awesome, others see her as a whiny, bratty, hostile Ungrateful Bastard who didn't earn her place on the league and treated her sister with contempt even when Dottie did everything she could to make her happy.
- Dottie possibly throwing the final game, given that while it gives Kit a win, it also screws over the rest of the Peaches.
- Ending Fatigue: The epilogue is both a CMOH and a Tear Jerker, but it does come off as Padding, especially since it's pretty lengthy.
- Hollywood Homely: Marla, who looks quite cute once she gets a makeover. Kit also, though she's the only person who seems to think this—the general opinion is that while not as beautiful as Dottie, she's still quite pretty. Even the newsreel makes a point of this.
Newsreel: And then there's [Dottie's] kid sister, Kit, who's as single as they come! Enough concentrated oomph for a whole carload of Hollywood starlets.
- Internet Backdraft: Don't ask if Dottie threw the game or if Kit won legitimately. Just don't.
- Memetic Mutation: "THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"
- Jimmy's "The 'hard' is what makes it great" speech has since become a popular motivational slogan for sports teams as well as a motto for anyone following their dreams.
- Padding: A long, maudlin, entirely pointless epilogue with the elderly veterans of the AAGPBL forming for a reunion.
- Retroactive Recognition: Sharona Fleming learns there's no crying in baseball.
- Noah Vosen tries to get Tom Hanks to get his act together.
