Major League (Ward, 1989)

Major League (David S. Ward, 1989)

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.  –Ecclesiastes 4:9

A group of co-workers have been begging me to watch this since we are all baseball fans. I now consider none of them actual baseball fans or even friends. Like most sports movies, this is an embarrassment to the actual sport. This features actors whose execution of the game looks like a bunch of little leaguers, basic misunderstandings of the way the sport actually works, and an awful underdog storyline. Not to mention it’s just another comedy using walking clichés as characters in place of realistic humans with traits and mannerisms that are naturally funny. It doesn’t work as an all out spoof. (Entirely too much of this is to be taken seriously.) And it’s obviously not trying to be a subtle comedy. It’s just a mess in every way imaginable.  3.25/10
