Mr. 3000 Reviews

This fuzzy baseball story about a conceited player (Bernie Mac) who comes out of retirement to fix his record (he's three hits short of the magic three thousand) is a major letdown.

Bernie Mac plays a baseball-star version of his corrosive TV-show persona in Mr. 3000, a comedy that's essentially an extended ad for ESPN. Ironically, though, the insertion of real-life media provides the film's few laughs.

An arrogant former sportsman learns a lesson in humility in this predictable comedy.

Mac's rascally charm and deceptive gravity give promise of more substance than the movie finally delivers.

This feature-length commercial for Major League Baseball covers all the cross-marketing bases.

A mild and forgettable baseball comedy.

There are no big surprises, but Mac and director Charles Stone III hit all the right dramatic notes, and Angela Bassett is reliably smart and sexy as Mac's love interest.

Bernie Mac carries this risqué minor league film.

Bernie Mac has a talent for cussing. It's a talent that can take you pretty far in the entertainment industry, but it still can't carry a movie, as Mr. 3000 demonstrates.

Combustible Celluloid

The movie may not rank in the Hall of Fame for baseball flicks, but Stone and his star do honor to the heart of the game, and provide enough comedy curve balls to stay above the fray of the encroaching clichés.

Mr. 3000 has nothing extraordinary to contribute to the ever-growing pile of sports movies with an ineffective artillery of weak comedy and romance.

Somewhat surprising twist at the end makes MR. 3000 interesting, but this happens too late to improve generally disappointing impression of this film.

A solid, enjoyable early Autumn baseball film, and just in time for the MLB playoffs.

It's a team sport, but the story belongs to the individual, which gives the otherwise comfortable corniness of Mr. 3000 its meta-celebrity subtext.

I can think of no compelling reason for anyone but a confirmed Bernie Mac fan wanting to watch it. I was already pretty much out of this ball game just a few innings in.

It's something that goes through the motions of being a movie without really bothering to make it all the way through.
