Major League is a decent film. It is about the new owner of the Cleveland Indians puts together a purposely horrible team so they'll lose and she can move the team. Charlie Sheen and Tom Berenger give good performances. The script is a little slow in places. David S. Ward did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor.
Major League may have been predictable in certain ways, but the comedy within Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, and Corbin Bernsen is absolutely strong. It's the kind of movie that has left a huge mark on the art of sports movies, comedy movies, and the art of baseball itself. It's fantastic.
Funny if predictable comedy about the owner of the Cleveland Indians as she intentionally fills her roster with burnt out players guaranteed to lose, so she can move the team to Florida. The owners plan backfires and the team wins their division. This comedy is arguably the best baseball comedy of all time. Sheen gives a memorable performance as the teams erratic ex convict pitcher.
Owner of Cleveland Indians wants to move the team to a warmer climate so she concocts an idea to assemble the worst players possible. The plan backfires and the team starts to win. The characters in this comedy drive the film. A surprise comedy classic for sure.
'Major League' is one of the those funny sports films that doesn't try to make too much out of a simple story about a baseball team trying to win the pennant and in doing so, it's a fun and entertaining film.
A little dated, but still quite funny. The romance is pretty lame, though. A pretty good baseball comedy, I have memories that the sequel was better, will have to watch it soon. Watched on Netflix with Sam at her house, December 27, 2015.
