This weeks discount dandy is Mr. 3000, an amiable comedy that features a nice turn by Bernie Mac that allows it to overcome its obvious formulaic shortcomings.
May 12, 2014
This fuzzy baseball story about a conceited player (Bernie Mac) who comes out of retirement to fix his record (he's three hits short of the magic three thousand) is a major letdown.
May 12, 2014
Bernie Mac plays a baseball-star version of his corrosive TV-show persona in Mr. 3000, a comedy that's essentially an extended ad for ESPN. Ironically, though, the insertion of real-life media provides the film's few laughs.
May 12, 2014
An arrogant former sportsman learns a lesson in humility in this predictable comedy.
May 12, 2014
Mac's rascally charm and deceptive gravity give promise of more substance than the movie finally delivers.
March 21, 2011
This feature-length commercial for Major League Baseball covers all the cross-marketing bases.
March 21, 2011
A mild and forgettable baseball comedy.
March 21, 2011
There are no big surprises, but Mac and director Charles Stone III hit all the right dramatic notes, and Angela Bassett is reliably smart and sexy as Mac's love interest.

Bernie Mac carries this risqu minor league film.
August 14, 2007
This one's out of the park.
September 27, 2006
Bernie Mac has a talent for cussing. It's a talent that can take you pretty far in the entertainment industry, but it still can't carry a movie, as Mr. 3000 demonstrates.
May 26, 2006
The movie may not rank in the Hall of Fame for baseball flicks, but Stone and his star do honor to the heart of the game, and provide enough comedy curve balls to stay above the fray of the encroaching clichs.
February 9, 2006
Deliberately Louisville-slugs its audience over the head.
July 11, 2005
Mac gets a rare opportunity to showcase his true dramatic range as an actor.
July 5, 2005
Mr. 3000 has nothing extraordinary to contribute to the ever-growing pile of sports movies with an ineffective artillery of weak comedy and romance.
June 26, 2005
Somewhat surprising twist at the end makes MR. 3000 interesting, but this happens too late to improve generally disappointing impression of this film.
June 21, 2005
A solid, enjoyable early Autumn baseball film, and just in time for the MLB playoffs.
February 26, 2005
It's a team sport, but the story belongs to the individual, which gives the otherwise comfortable corniness of Mr. 3000 its meta-celebrity subtext.
February 6, 2005
...easy-going...
February 3, 2005
I can think of no compelling reason for anyone but a confirmed Bernie Mac fan wanting to watch it. I was already pretty much out of this ball game just a few innings in.
