Mac's rascally charm and deceptive gravity give promise of more substance than the movie finally delivers.

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.
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.

Mr. 3000 has nothing extraordinary to contribute to the ever-growing pile of sports movies with an ineffective artillery of weak comedy and romance.

A pleasant film in a genre where pleasant just means you're not trying hard enough.

A lack of laughs places this ESPN-infused Bernie Mac vehicle in the already overstuffed bin of forgettable sports comedies.

An arrogant former sportsman learns a lesson in humility in this predictable comedy.

Stone can't get much movement on his slider.

It's not that the jokes aren't funny. It's that the jokes aren't THERE.

Mr. 3000 ends with a terrific joke involving Viagra that coldly reminds just what type of film this could've been had Charles Stone allowed Bernie Mac to run with it.
Full Review | Original Score: D
September 14, 2004
The movie drags so much in the opening acts that it saps much of the funny right out of Mac's performance.

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.

Bassett and Mac deserve better vehicles for their charm and talent.

It's something that goes through the motions of being a movie without really bothering to make it all the way through.

Any movie that goes to the well twice for a Jay Leno appearance suffers from comedic dehydration.

A minor league film about major league baseball.

September 16, 2004
As fresh as a highlight reel of day-after replays, Mr. 3000 is a case of major-league talent stuck in a minor-league story.

Well, sports fans, it looks like Hollywood has underestimated our collective intelligence again.

September 18, 2004
Mid-life change is a difficult subject to depict on the screen, and this predictable film misses the mark by making it look too easy.

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.
