Information about the director.
This effects-heavy, 1994 remake of the 1951 film starring Janet Leigh and Keenan Wynn is all computer-generated pizzazz, with none of the charm or imagination of the original. Aimed squarely at children this time, the story focuses on a boy who gets some divine intervention on behalf of his favorite ball club. Christopher Lloyd plays the head angel, and Danny Glover is good as the team’s manager, but the real star of the film—for better or worse—is the software that makes a glowing, celestial presence on the field seem real. —Tom Keogh
