    Great Entertaiment

    In spite of the Movie Guide's less than glowing review of the films portrayal of the Babe's personal life, (undoubtedly true), the film's depiction of Babe Ruth's accomplishments even in his less than glorious waning years is worth watching. Evidently the Babe had a never give up spirit that all ages can admire to accompany his extrordinary baseball skills. The performance by John Goodman as Babe Ruth was worthy of an Oscar, and worth viewing the film for that alone. This is equal to the film,The Natural and perhaps better simply because it was based on a real person.
