YMMV: Angels in the Outfield

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • At the hearing, Maggie's What the Hell, Hero? speech mentions how no one laughs at a professional football player who drops to one knee after a touchdown. Fast forward to 2011 and Tebowing
    • The 1994 version may have been a bit difficult to watch after Nick Adenhart's death.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: For most of the 1994 film, the characters don't believe in themselves to win but rather they believe in angels coming in and blatantly cheating in their favor, costing hard-working opposing athletes their livelihood for the sake of a little kid with a terrible case of Sarcasm Failure. In contrast, the angels in the original film were more sparks of inspiration that had the coach push all the right buttons for his team.
