Stupidity this epic can only be the deliberate work of cynical opportunists.
| Original Score: 1/5

In the last line of the film, as the final credits thankfully disappear, Richie casually says "that was a waste of time wasn't it?" Yes. Definitely.

It doesn't take a genius to work out what's on offer: toilet humour, physical comedy, more toilet humour and an Americans-do-it-best schmaltzy climax.

...ultimately nothing more than a silly, egregiously sentimental comedy...

You won't know whether to roll your eyes or smile like a fool, but you will know you've been entertained.

...there was actually a small smattering of applause when the movie ended. Whether they were clapping for the film or just the fact that it was finally over will have to remain a mystery.

The Benchwarmers is better than it should have been. Only, that's not saying much.

Even Jon Lovitz with a Batmobile, a dwarf attack in a playroom, and David Spade's best wig ever can't save this mawkish misfire.

June 1, 2006
Unfunny, badly thought out and occasionally downright offensive, this is an extremely poor effort, even by the standards of other Rob Schneider movies.

Just when the baseball slapstick starts wearing thin, a final-reel gush of truly cynical sentiment on behalf of the physically challenged sends the ordeal-factor off the scale.
May 20, 2006
Highbrow humour is not the film's strong point but there's no faulting the sincerity of this against-all-odds comedy.
May 13, 2006
The Benchwarmers strikes out. Again and again and again.

This abysmally static comedy, the brainfart of 'the people who brought you Big Daddy' is a mess on every level %u2026 depressingly woeful.
May 12, 2006
Starring Schneider and Spade, whose careers have been circling the drain for years, and Heder, who won't be far behind them if he doesn't improve his career moves.

This comedy made me laugh exactly 3 times during its entire 80-minute run.

Only the reliably funny Jon Lovitz delivers his lines with any aplomb, providing just a few laughs in this otherwise horrid movie.

Believe it or not, The Benchwarmers is so lame that it can't even lay claim to being the best Adam Sandler-produced movie not screened for critics in 2006
April 23, 2006
An Adam Sandler movie without Adam Sandler, THE BENCHWARNERS offers the worst of all worlds.

What is Craig Kilborn doing in this movie?

There's a reason this comedy was not screened for critics. It strikes out, except at Pizza hut which must be thrilled with its product placements.
