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 the game 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.
