This is easily my favorite movie of all-time. Being a sports fan who loves comedies, you can't beat this flick. This is one movie that I can watch over and over without getting sick of it. Definitely hilarious, the one-liners are great. The cast is solid as well. Wesley Snipes, Tom Berenger, Dennis Haysbert, Corbin Bernsen, Charlie Sheen and Bob Uecker are excellent in their roles. I love how the film holds nothing back as well, unlike the sequel where the language and what not was toned down.Is Major League predictable? I guess...but it is still a great movie. Its a ***** movie in my <more>
opinion, plus it was filmed at the late MCS Milwaukee County Stadium so that makes it even better!
This is one of the cleverest predictable movies of all time, and for my taste the best baseball movie. A great cast, an underdog plot, and one memorable choice after another by the writers and director make this a valentine to the foot soldiers of our national pastime. Remember, this was 15 years ago. The fabulous scoreboard, the hysterical radio play-by-play of Bob Uecker, even the motley occupants of Cleveland sports bars are irresistible hooks to reel us in, after we've been hooked by the motley team of colorful has-beens and never-were's. If this is a formula, it's the right <more>
one. I deeply love this movie, and regret not having seen it in its theatrical run. I've seen it a dozen times since. I'm sure the audience went wild during that climactic Yankees game! How about that Dorn making a bunch of clutch plays! Didn't you love Cerrano carrying his bat around the bases with him? Jake not dusting off, and pointing, twice...man, I wish I'd been there.Then there's the little insert, early in the story, about Jake's fantasy of hitting the winning run out of the park. What happened instead when the chips were really down? Okay, it isn't "poetry" -- it's more of a limerick, know what I mean? Just start with three words: "There once was...." and finish it yourself! I bet you'll finish with a big smile on your face!
I don't care what anyone says this is by far the best baseball movie ever made. Bull Durham was a bit too much of a chick flick to be a real baseball fans movie of choice.Major League isn't a movie that's going to solve world peace or anything but if you want a light hearted, entertaining film that is hysterically funny then you need to see this.Charlie Sheen being a former high school pitcher who was able to get 85 mph on his fastball, which isn't as fast as characters 100 mph. But close enough to with the way they film it to make it look believable as being a real flame <more>
thrower. If they had someone who didn't have a background in baseball they would've probably had to use a stunt double for his pitching scenes, which would've sucked.
My first contact with Baseball... (by Starbuck-13)
As you might know, Baseball is not big in Germany. Hardly anybody knows or understands the rules. People watch soccer here. Basketball gets bigger. But Baseball? No.So this movie, which many of my friends watched as well, was my first contact with this interesting sport. Of course, it is a fairy tale. Of course, the underdog won't get that big that it will beat everybody and win the championship. Or will it? Sports history tells us different. The story is the same in every sport. Just two years ago, a team just promoted from second division won the German soccer championship! This movie <more>
depicts the glorious story of a bunch of outsiders and underachievers who finally win some games. And it is told in such a wonderful manner that you can't but root for them on their way out of the slumps. Yes! It is a simple story! But the characters are wonderful, the wisecracking Harry Doyle incredibly funny and the finals... well... no spoilers here.My most favorite moment is when oldtimer pitcher Harris is replaced by Charlie Sheens character in the finals. In the first games of the season, some die-hard fans had given Sheen the nickname "Wild thing" and sang the famous song. Now, the whole crowd is chanting this song as Sheen steps onto the field to pitch his largest enemy. This scene always gives me goosebumps. It is splendid.Many great moments, excellent humor and a fate you would wish for your favorite sports team as well - unless you are one of those boring Yankees, Bulls or Bayern Muenchen fans...
There have been some excellent baseball movies made from Field of Dreams to The Pride of the Yankees, but no movie based on the national pastime can ever claim to be as hysterically funny as Major League. Granted, the value of the original was hurt by the second and third attempts at re-creating the atmosphere. Those two films were an embarrassment to all involved.Major League, however, personified the attitude of "Nothing to lose". Aside from the easily identified woes of the Cleveland franchise of the late-eighties, there were several actors in this film that had yet to hit big or <more>
had started to fall from grace. The incredibly strong language of the movie only made it seem that much more realistic.
Amusing and fun-filled baseball comedy about some players of the Cleveland Indians who band together to make a serious run for the play-offs when they hear that their new owner has plans to move the team to Florida.Writer/director David S. Ward "Down Periscope" has served up a charming and in-genius treat for anyone who still love the game of baseball despite what has happened to the game in recent years. The cast that Ward has assembled here Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes, Rene Russo, etc. is marvelous. In addition, two notable former big leaguers Pete Vukovich and <more>
Bob Uecker also appear in the movie.There are plenty of nice touches applied here, such as having the old County Stadium home of the Brewers and some of Uecker's punch-lines make the film downright irriestiable.
One of the best sports/comedy movies of all-time. (by Brian-272)
Over the years many times I have watched Major League and each time I enjoy it. This film just seems better if you watch it during baseball season. The cast and plot of this movie is just great. You have a bunch of misfits and old-timers who come together and bring the Cleveland Indians out of many years of a slump, and finally contend for an American League Pennant. The movie has plenty of funny moments and mishaps that the characters do just to make you laugh while at the same moment you cheer for the team in each game of the season. Charlie Sheen is great he was perfectly cast as the <more>
pitcher. Plus the cast of Wesley Snipes, James Gammon, Dennis Haysbert, Corbin Bernsen, and Tom Berenger all worked very good together even Bob Uecker is a joy as the Indians very funny play-by-play announcer. Major League is just one of those movies when you watch it each time you enjoy it and you just love to cheer for the underdog. If you are a baseball fan and love a little comedy mixed with winning then Major League is a movie to watch many times.
Wild thing, you make my heart sing. (by lastliberal)
There was a lousy football game on so I thought I would wait for a better one and watch this film again. I am glad i did as the game ended 40-10.The cast of this film is what makes it. They put together a great group to do a movie that is nothing special - losers and has-beens win the pennant.I like Charlie Sheen and he is worth watching in anything he does, especially "Two and a Half Men." He was perfect in the character of the renegade.I just saw Corbin Bernsen recently in The Dentist, and he can bring laughs to any movie.Rene Russo? I love her and even though her part was small, <more>
it was great.Wesley Snipes, Tom Berenger, and Dennis Haysbert all had a unique way of making this a great movie. And, hooray for Stacy Carroll in her only movie. How did they let her get away? I want to thank the Japanese Academy for recognizing this film with a nomination for best Foreign Film. They recognize greatness when they see it.
One of the funniest baseball movies I've ever seen. (by Peach-2)
Major League is definitely one of the funniest baseball movies I have ever seen. The only thing I didn't like about it is that I'm a life-long Yankee fan. They make the Yankee's out to be such jerks in this film, how could you not root for the Indians. The casting is excellent and there are some truly great moments in this film. It suffers from a Cinderella type storyline, but that is the only true weakness.
