Mr. 3000 Photos

Movie Info

Milwaukee Brewers player Stan Ross (Bernie Mac) angers his teammates by retiring during a 1995 playoff game after making the 3,000th base hit required to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. Nine years later, a clerical error is discovered, invalidating three of the hits and keeping Ross from the ultimate baseball honor. The 47-year-old player convinces the Brewers to let him rejoin the team to make his last three hits, and sheds his selfish nature as he rediscovers his love of the game.

Audience Reviews for Mr. 3000

  • Mar 25, 2013
    Essentially a "Major League" "rethinking" (meaning they blatantly stole the plot), with the story emphasis concentrated mainly on the old timer's personal redemption. That being said, its a pretty good sports movie, Bernie Mac literally astounding as the big cheesy ham in love with himself who learns better. Definitely a keeper with great character performances soundly backing up Bernie's play.

    As far as baseball comedies are concerned, Mr. 3000 is nothing compared to the likes of Major League or The Sandlot but is nonetheless a worthwhile film to watch due to good on-screen presence by lead actor Bernie Mac. The comedy is good here, but at times there are parts where the comedy could have been improved upon. The film manages to overcome its flaws by its good story and well balanced cast that just light up the screen. Now this isn't a perfect comedy, but it is definitely better than many other films in the genre, and it is better than the Benchwarmers and the Sandlot sequels. Bernie Mac is good here and is perfect for the role that he plays. The film has a good mix of comedy into its plot, but like I've said, some parts it lacks a bit and there was room for improvement. The film is worth seeing if you love the sport or a well acted comedy with heart. The film is entertaining from start to finish due to its plot and effective cast. If you want mindless entertainment, this is a perfect film to watch. Although the comedy is at times slow, Bernie Mac is fun to watch and he is perfect in his performance. If the film would have been rewritten and the jokes would have been reworked slightly, then this would truly have been a memorable comedy. As it stands, it's a good comedy, but one that had the potential of being a much better film. But Mr. 3000 is not a bad film, and it is quite good and is quite frankly underrated. Give it a shot; you might enjoy it for what it's worth.

    "Bernie Mac is perfectly cast in Mr. 3000" thats like saying Paris Hilton was perfectly cast in 'the simple life'

    Bernie Mac was one of my favorite comedians, but I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much out of this film. Mac played Stan Ross, one of the best baseball players to ever step foot on the field in Milwaukee. He retired right after he got his 3000th hit, something that is very difficult to do in the Majors. After his career, Mr. 3000 became his personal moniker, as he launched a number of businesses under the Mr. 3000 name. Ross is even being considered for the Hall of Fame, when a review of his statistics finds an error. As it turns out, three of his hits had been counted twice, and now to maintain his Mr. 3000 persona, Ross must return to the game, at age 47, to try and get three more hits. While this was supposed to be a comedy, the part I really enjoyed was seeing how this superstar, who had everything handed to him, his whole life, struggled to do the simplest of things. The other players hazed him, the younger players resented him, and he had to somehow rectify this with his massive ego. As for Mac, he was outstanding! The man was truly unique and I feel as though he never got the chance to reach his real potential. Films like Mr. 3000 were fun and definitely enjoyable for the audience, but they weren't the kind of award winning, career defining roles that he was really capable of. This film is full of laughs and the sports action wasn't bad either, to say the least, I was fairly impressed and I think you will be too.
