Aside from Tony Curtis's star turn as a greedy hustler who takes charge of the titular Little Leaguers, there's little of note in this lifeless, pointless second sequel.

So how much more can they get out of cussing kiddies playing baseball? Apparently an additional 91 minutes - 91 painful, horrendous, baseball-bat-to-the-crotch-three-times minutes.

Manages the amazing feat of seeming to both drag out its material and completely skim over it.

So much silliness has been substituted for the solid situations and characterizations of the original that it's hard to believe the same people had anything to do with both pictures.
