Lackluster baseball players hear their Cleveland team's new owner is counting on them to lose.
The extra features on the Wild Thing Edition of Major League display the same camaraderie and down-to-earth playfulness that have made this movie a cult favorite. The commentary by writer/director David S. Ward and producer Chris Chesser is warm and amiable as they ruefully wish they'd had a little less swearing in the movie. Featurettes include a heartfelt tribute to Bob Eucker (who played announcer Harry Doyle), actual ballplayers enthusing about the movie, and a raffish "about the movie" doc that mixes promotional footage with interviews from many years later (when some actors have lost hair and gained weight). The most intriguing item for fans, though, is the revelation that the ending was originally going to redeem the movie's main villain, the team's showgirl owner (played by Rachel Phelps)--but moviegoers loved hating her so much, they decided to let her stay evil. The deleted scene between her and the team's manager (wonderfully gravel-voiced James Gammon) would have given the movie a very different spin; discovering things like this is what dvd extra features are for. --Bret Fetzer

This kind of film is a throwback in many ways because it si not pretentious, not terribly offensive and fun. So, get a Chicago-style hot dog with mustard, a coke and wear your baseball cap and enjoy the antics and funny lines and bits. Play ball!
