Thread: LEAST Favorite Baseball Movie

  1. #21
    While Major League 3 is bad simply for the reason they should have never made it (along with Major League 2), I can't stand Little Big League. That movie alone put the Twins franchise back 5 years.

    Major League 3 was pretty terrible, but I have to go with Ed (If you don't remember Matt LeBlanc and a monkey [not worth looking up whether it was a chimp, or otherwise] I don't blame your mental dump).

    Now for some housekeeping. Thrylos, League of Thier Own is hilarous (just don't watch the baseball playing, it helps). If you missed Powrwrap's member picture, go look now. Priceless.

    there are more bad than good in the genre

    but rookie of the year is perhaps the worst of them all. I dont like Field of Dreams or the Natural either.

    I never saw Rookie of the Year, but the line "Funky Butt Lovin'" on the previews made me laugh for a whole summer. I don't know why.

    Just finished watching For the Love of the Game and couldn't have hated it more. During the movie, I couldn't think of a reason why anyone would fall in love with Kelly Preston's character. At least the masseuse from early in the movie was hotter and less of a grab bag of 90s/00s female character cliches. Might as well have just had the role played by Lisa Loeb.

    I'm a fan of For the Love of the Game... and, "Funky Butt Lovin'" has kept me laughing ever since... I still throw it out from time to time!

    Yes. Yes we do.

    I didn't even know they had a 2 and 3, and I never could even make it through the original.

    When I noticed the topic, I thought this was going to be easy. "Bang the Drum Slowly" stands out in my mind as one of the few movies I've ever paid to see in a theatre that I absolutely hated (usually, there's something about the movie that I expect to like if I'm going to pay to see it). The baseball scenes were flat awful, even by that era's low standards.

    But after reading all of the prior comments, I find myself saying, "Oh yeah, that one was bad," an awful lot. I'm not as big a fan of The Natural as a lot of people, but I don't hate it. I excused the baseball in "League of Their Own" because, well, it was girls playing baseball, after all (excuse me while I duck).

    Most of the sequels were just bad, but that's expected of sequels, so when I have low expectations, I don't deduct points for those expectations being met. Low budget comedies with a baseball theme or backdrop are in the same vein. It's like a baseball episode of a TV sitcom, you know they aren't going to worry about realism or "getting the baseball right," so when they don't, I don't really care.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    In response to Seth's request to throw Parker out of TwinsCentric for this, I vote aye. Aaand the "ayes" have it. Is there a TwinsDaily Kangaroo Court we can bring this up in?

    Seth is normally pretty reasonable (plus he's one of the site owners), so I'll forgive the transgression and vote No. If it was anyone else... (looking at you, FishingMN)

    For the Love of the Game in a landslide. The lack of chemistry between Costner and Kelly Preston was awful. The back and forth between the game and his personal life was annoying. Anyone who says The Natural or Field of Dreams are not good baseball movies are just taunting those of us who are true baseball fans.

    Second Bad News Bears movie was worse than bad news. Never cared much for For the Love of the Game (or something like that) either.

    Worst movie is The Natural because it destroyed the ending of the book. Bad movie, bad bad movie.

    AMEN to "For the Love of the Game." I felt bad saying I hated that movie since I'm a baseball fan but Kevin Costner really was awful and it just seemed really contrived. Dragged on and on!!

    Any Bad News Bears sequel

    Probably doesn't count, but does anyone remember the Fox sitcom about baseball starring Joe Rogan, Mike Starr, and the police chief from "Law and Order: SVU?" It wasn't a movie, but the fact that 6 episodes of it aired should count towards something. It was basically a sitcom version of "Major League" that wasn't funny and rarely showed any actual baseball being played.

    And I'm trying to remember the name without Googling it.
