This is an almost entirely female cast, and the story follows their attempt to become major league baseball players while the men are 'gone'.

Why the scare quotes on "gone"? They were gone, as in not present. And an all female cast is a positive thing, as evidenced by the need for this test and this website! I remember it being a decent movie, but I haven't seen it in a long time.

I always liked this movie. I first saw it when I was a kid. It was the first movie I saw where women seemed to act a little more like what I experienced my friends and me acting like. Women have things to say to one another. They have their own goals and desires and things happening in their lives (other than pleasing men). Wow. How amazing that men aren't the only ones having interesting thoughts about things other than sex. ;)
