Berenger/Bernsen/Sheen/Russo ~ Major League
A baseball comedy and slob comedy rolled into one, this one actually works as entertainment, if not as a piece of cinematic mastery. James Gammon is the has-been manager hired to lead the last-place Cleveland Indians whose owner wants them to lose so she can sell them. But the team of has-beens and never-wases that he assembles (including Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen, and Wesley Snipes) develops a sense of pride and turns the team around. There's plenty of rowdy humor about sex, race, and whatever else they can make fun of. Look for Rene Russo (in her first film role) as Berenger's romantic interest; Snipes also had his first showy role as Willie Mays Hayes, the team's base-stealing ace. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Despite the light tone of the movie, the acting is good for a comedy, featuring younger versions of Renee Russo, Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Dennis Haysbert, and Wesley Snipes, just to name a few. I watch this movie every winter to remind me just what I love about baseball--that anything can happen. A joy to watch over and over again, although the special features are a bit weak on the DVD--all you get are a grainy trailer and some talent files. Then again, it seems that most of my 80's favorites get shortchanged when they go to DVD, so that's nothing new and different. I guess the studios are only interested in spending time and effort on new release blockbusters. Too bad, as this movie definitely deserves a Bull Durham-like re-release on DVD.
Much is made of the fact that the Indians have not won a pennant in over 30 years and nobody expects them to do well. The team is stocked with over the hill players like Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger): a washed up catcher with bad knees who they found playing in the Mexican league, Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen): the third baseman who is scared of being hit by the ball; and players that never were stars like Rick Vaughn (Charlie Sheen): a pitcher with no control serving time in prison for stealing a car, and Willie Mays Hayes (Wesley Snipes): the centerfielder with blazing speed but can't hit, and Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert): a voodoo practicing slugger who can't hit a curveball.
With this misfit team, we go through Spring Training and the regular season. As the season progresses the team starts playing better than the owner had hoped so she keeps taking away essentials like the team plane, the hot tub, hot water, and others. The team plays even better until the whole plot is revealed by the General Manager of the franchise. This gives the Indians the fire they need to be a contender and make a run for the post season (since this might be the only chance these players get).Read more ›

This is more a nostalgia note than a review, but most of this movie was filmed over one summer in Milwaukee (maybe Cleveland wasn't blue-collar enough). Read morePublished on May 6 2004 by a baseball fan
Its always amazing to me how people take movies like this so seriously that they think their "astute" observations about plot predictability pass for intelligent bashing. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2004 by Brian Gilroy
