All are very good baseball comedy movies.

While this isn't the instant classic that the first MAJOR LEAGUE movie was, I actually like the sequel as well as the original.

While this isn't the instant classic that the first MAJOR LEAGUE movie was, I actually like the sequel as well as the original.
The only thing really missing from the first film is Wesley Snipes as center fielder Willie Mays Hayes, but Omar Epps does a nice job in his place.
So what if you know that they're going to pull if off from the outset...it's all about the journey right?
Bob Uecker makes the film!

The boys from Cleveland are back to prove that last year's team was no fluke in this great sequel film. After winning their divison, the Indians were defeated by the Chicago White Sox in the ALCS. After losing, team owner Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitton) sold the team to former third baseman Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen). Roger then brought in high-priced free agent catcher Jack Parkman (David Keith) to bolster the Indians line up. However, incumbent catcher Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger) is still on the team, along with another catching prospect, Rube Baker (Eric Brushotter). Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert), Willie Mays Hayes (Omar Epps), and Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) also return from last year's team, along with manager Lou Brown (James Gammon).

Hayes starred in his own action movie in the off-season, and also tried turning into a power hitter, much to the chagrin of manager Brown. Cerrano discovered Buddhism, and now treats everybody as a friend, even the opposing players during a game. Jake's knees finally got the best of him, but Lou asks him to stay on as a coach. Roger soon finds out that he's in way over his head. He overpaid Rachel for the team, and now he has only enough money left for two months of operations. His first move is to trade Parkman to the hated White Sox for outfielder Isuro Tanaka (Takashi Ishibashi). Tanaka immediately challenges Cerrano, saying he has "no marbles". Roger's second move is to re-sell the team back to Rachel, much to the horror of everyone else! Rick Vaughn has shed his "Wild Thing" image. He and his agent/girlfriend Rebecca Flannery (Alison Doody) have concentrated on getting commercial advertisements and endorsement opportunities.

I saw this movie in 1994 at the theater, and I went into it hoping for as good a movie as the original. Of course, with sequels that is largely the "Stuff of legend", and this movie proved to be no exception. It was still an enjoyable film, however. Most of the great cast from the original returned for this installment, with the major exception being Wesley Snipes as "Willie Mays Hayes." He was replaced by Omar Epps, who did what turned out to be a decent job with the role. At the time, I wished they would have written it so that Hayes had gotten traded instead of hiring another actor to play him, since I thought Snipes was the ultimate for the part. However, Epps later won me over for his outstanding performance in "Higher Learning", so he is OK in my book. As far as the DVD for this movie is concerned, it has the all-important "Widescreen" feature, which for us purists is the only real way to watch a movie. The trailer for this film as well as some bonus trailers are included, but that's about it for extras. The sound quality of this DVD is great and the price is affordable. Although not as good as the original film, this one is worth picking up. One last thing about this is that, despite the lack of extras, at least Warner Bros. did their part and released Major League 2 and 3 on DVD. I have to agree with the above reviewer in wondering why Paramount has not gotten their act together and released the original "Major League" on a DVD of their own? A step in the right direction for them was getting "The Bad News Bears" out recently. Until then, I was starting to think they had something against baseball movies. I guess all we can do is keep hoping and dreaming that it will show up one of these days.Read more ›

Of all the baseball movies at our house, I like "the new ballpark movie" the most. My favorite characters are Baker and Tannaka, but I also like to swing the bat like Parkman and pitch like Wild Thing. The best thing about the movie is that it is full of on-field action and there are very few "talking parts". We currently own the DVD version, but Mommy and Daddy want the VHS version so I can watch it in my playroom.

I was a big fan of Major League, but was somewhat disappointed in Major League II, even though I think it's worth having, and it is an enjoyable movie to watch.

In the first Major League, we got a first class baseball story of unlikely heroes, which held up well even though I thought the personal lives of some of the players was stressed a little too much. In Major League II, which is still entertaining, I think the chemistry suffered because of this and other continuity issues. For instance, Wesley Snipes, the base stealing pheenom, was replaced by another actor, yet we are supposed to believe he's the same person. Doesn't quite work. Our memories aren't THAT short. Also, the love interest focus switched from Tom Berenger to Charlie Sheen, which is ok, but we are supposed to know all about (and root for) a former girlfriend we have never seen before, whose existence wasn't even hinted at in the first film. And finally, the chemistry suffered a little more because the feud between the owner and the players was reintroduced in an unlikely way (why would she buy the team back if she wanted to get out of Cleveland so bad in the first film?). This antagonism which worked so well in the first film falls flat in the second (also it is introduced late, almost as an afterthought). Still the second film was enjoyable and as part of the series is a must-have.

But if you're considering this don't neglect Major League 3, Back to the Minors, which presents many new characters (while retaining several of the old favorites especially Cerrano) and all is well done with spontaneity and good chemistry. The action, photography, writing, gags, and music all work well together and for me it's now hard to pick a favorite between I and III.

Just get them all.
