It's hard to believe that this fun, creative film is turning thirty years old but it still stands the test of time and is a joy to watch.

Amiable but predictable.
May 6, 2014
Ward directs his actors as adroitly as he has written for them, and the vulnerability that he allows his three stars to reveal is really what makes the movie work.

It skims along agreeable surfaces, expertly balancing its comedy with melodrama and fulfilling expectations right on schedule.

Sheen, as an ace fireball pitcher called Wild Thing by the adoring fans, is excellent; so is Bernsen as a star-struck third baseman, whose portfolio is more important that a hard grounder in the hole.

It has its moments, but it also has long, slow stretches where you feel like standing up and wandering around and maybe going out to hunt up a beer. That's fine for baseball, but it's not the way movies are supposed to work.

Somebody should tell Ward that winning isn't everything. Character is. And this is what his movie lacks.

If you're looking for sophisticated wit keep going, but Major League is pleasant, undemanding fun.

Major League doesn't try too hard or aim too high, but it is pretty funny.

The absurdity of the Indians winning the pennant in 1989 helped make the film a lot of fun, and it was a great little fantasy for Tribe fans back in the day.

A meat and potatoes '80s movie, that maybe doesn't 'taste great,' but at least is 'less filling.' [Blu-ray]
August 1, 2008
Even though too many jokes fall flat under the weight of predictability, its sheer comic energy manages to entertain.
March 8, 2008
Sometimes funny comedy set in major league baseball with plenty of bawdy slapstick.
April 8, 2007
Major League holds up today not only as the rare sports-themed comedy to balance goofiness and dynamic game atmospherics seamlessly, but also as a fleeting reminder of baseball's last remnants of participatory charm and gee-whiz curveball worship.

Consider Ward's comic framework and Major League is a top-tier baseball film.
March 14, 2007
Slick predictability is about all it has in mind, down to the last trite freeze-frame.
March 14, 2007
Writer-director David Ward has provided Cleveland Indian fans with something to cheer about and moviegoers with a generally engaging baseball comedy.
March 14, 2007
For sheer crowd-pleasing fun it belts one high into the left-field bleachers.

What redeems it is that the action sequences are superbly filmed, climaxing with Sheen's bullish entry into the arena at make-or-break time, the crowd singing 'Wild Thing' in clamouring unison.
