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!
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.Read more ›
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.

Should have left it alone. This one has maybe 2 funny parts. Tom Berringer looks extra old in this. And every time I see Serrano now, I just here "The Allstate" voice. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Don
Terrible movie! what a waste of time. Nothing can compare to the first film. I loved Major League! but Major League 2 sucked.Published 2 months ago by M. Beadle
“Major League 2” is an unoriginal, unpleasant and unsteady sequel to the more successful “Major League”. This film is not so much a sequel, as a remake, with a few tweaks. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Tim Williams
