Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This hilarious, crowd-pleasing hit scores big laughs with funnyman Bernie Mac (BAD SANTA, OCEAN'S 11) and Academy Award(R) nominee Angela Bassett (Best Actress, WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT, 1993). The day he got his 3,000th big league hit, Stan Ross (Mac) walked away from the game believing he'd punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame. But 10 years later, Stan becomes baseball's biggest error when it's discovered that three of his hits don't count! Now this over-the-hill former star with an oversized ego decides to make the major league's most outrageous comeback in order to regain his claim to fame! Also featuring Chris Noth (TV's SEX AND THE CITY, CAST AWAY) and Paul Sorvino (THE COOLER, GOODFELLAS) ... catch the laugh-packed comedy that's been a home run with audiences everywhere!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bernie Mac Nails It April 19, 2005
Format:DVD
I can imagine very few people who could have played Stan Ross as well as Bernie Mac did. It was a delicate balance, playing a jerk and still coming across as somewhat likeable. Likeable enough to forgive, anyways.

Bernie Mac plays Stan Ross, a professional ball player who quits at hit 3,000. His entire life centers around the fact that he hit 3,000 hits.

Stan Ross' main goal is to make it into the Hall of Fame but under review it turns out that 3 of his hits were counted twice and it kicked him out of the running for the Hall of Fame (mostly because nobody even likes him). So, Stan decides to come back to claim his 3 hits, win back his legacy, and continue his campaign into the Hall of Fame.

Even though he has been gone for nine years, the game has changed. The balls are faster, the athletes younger, and the training is more high tech. And to top it off, Stan is older as well.

In other words, Stan needs to change. Not just physically, but his attitude as well. The ending, though predictable, was well worth getting to and fairly satisfying. Since this is a character movie, it all came down to a choice. And, unlike other movies like this, Stan doesn't hesitate on his choice, he just makes it. I liked that, I liked that a lot. It could have been blown out and that would have ruined the ending for me.

The love interest that Stan chases was actually the only boring part of the movie. After watching a few of them I just started fast forwarding those scenes. Believe me, I didn't miss a thing. I know it needs to be in there to attract certain demographics, but I found it boring and pointless. So if you are a guy, trust me, just fast forward these parts.

Entertaining and funny... perfect for a good weekend video.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light Comedy with a Little Bite from Bernie Mac. February 5, 2005
Format:DVD
"Mr. 3000" is a sports comedy with a virtuous message that will satisfy light entertainment cravings. Stan Ross (Bernie Mac) is a former Milwaukee Brewer who retired from baseball as soon as he had achieved a career 3000 hits, guaranteeing him a place in the record books and a slew of endorsement deals. His teammates hated him. The press attacked him. But egotistical, self-obsessed Stan didn't care as long as he had 3000 hits and a shot at the Baseball Hall of Fame. 9 years later, when he is finally being seriously considered for entry into the Hall of Fame, a computational error that caused 3 of his hits to be counted twice is discovered. Stan only made 2997 hits! So he decides to return to baseball, at the age of 47, to get those 3 hits back. He finds that a lot of things have changed since he left the game. But his former love, sports journalist Maureen Simmons (Angela Bassett), is covering his story again. And the team's young, cocky, selfish, star player (Brian White) reminds Stan of himself.

Bernie Mac injects a little bite into this otherwise feel-good comedy. Stan Ross is obnoxious, but Mac makes him a basically lovable jerk. If you don't like Bernie Mac's persona, however, you won't like this. Stan is overbearing, but "Mr. 3000" is ultimately a sweet film about self-sacrifice with the occasional off-color comment to remind us that we are talking about professional athletes here. It's a fun movie if you're looking for something light.

The DVD: Bonus features include 3 featurettes, 3 extended sequences, 3 deleted scenes with optional director's commentary, outtakes (3 minutes), and an audio commentary by director Charles Stone III. "The Making of Mr.

Call me a sap if you like, but I think MR. 3000 tells a beautiful story. Predictable? Maybe. Cliched? Possibly. And yet, it's so well-written and directed, so vividly acted, and so attentive to characters rather than to attending to carrying out a sports-movie formula, that I never FELT that the movie was musty or cliched. The whole thing feels fresh. It's also funny and, in the end, rather touching.

MR. 3000 is basically about a selfish man's comeuppance. After getting his 3000th hit, Stan Ross (Bernie Mac) decides to rest on his laurels and retire from baseball---even as his team, the Milwaukee Brewers, is in the midst of playoff contention. Nine years later, Ross finds out that he didn't have his 3000 hits after all; a counting error caused a few hits to count more than once, and he really had only 2997 when he retired. His pride having taken a beating, he decides to return to baseball to get his final three hits...and, in the process, grows up a little from the selfish man he was in the past.

It's a plot that doesn't sound all that fresh on paper. But there's no anticipating the depth that the screenwriters, director Charles Stone III, and Bernie Mac bring to the character of Stan Ross. Ross could have been made into a caricature of arrogance, a painfully funny stick figure of a character off of whom easy satirical points could have been scored. But the Ross of MR. 3000 is disarmingly likable in spite of his (hilarious) flaws, because you realize that, despite his me-first nature, he really does love the game of baseball, and understands how it works.
