The ORIGINAL and ONLY the original,
This review is from: The Sandlot (DVD)
I have to go along with the others here. This is a GREAT movie. It never did receive the attention that it deserved. I also agree that this is a much better movie than Rookie of the Year (not that ROTY was a bad movie, but The Sandlot is a better movie).
Both of my sons enjoyed this (and they are 12 years apart) as well as I did - which is saying something!
James Earl Jones is - as usual - fantastic. Dennis Leary lays off the manic act and adds that certain "something" to the movie. The kids who played the characters were well chosen. Whoever picked the cast did an outstanding job.
On a night when you want to relax with your son (or daughter even), or you are watching the grand kids, or if you find you have the evening to yourself - and there isn't anything worth watching (and there never is), put this movie in and relax.
You will find that this is one of those movies that you can watch over and over again without getting tired of it.
