Reviews for The Babe

Review - Babe, The

Not very good. The baseball scenes were awful. Ruth was portrayed as a spoiled jerk with the mental capacity of a five-year-old. In the movie, his driving ambition was to be a manager, and his failure to become one, great tragedy. Goodman doesn't look like any kind of athlete, and in the end, I didn't much care what happened to that version of the Babe.
