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.

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

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.

A mild and forgettable baseball comedy.

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.

Deliberately Louisville-slugs its audience over the head.
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.
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.

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.

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

A minor league film about major league baseball.

It's not that the jokes aren't funny. It's that the jokes aren't THERE.
September 24, 2004
As a comedy, Mr. 3000 is something just a little better than a whiff. The emotional change-up near the end could just turn it into a pinch hit, though.
September 22, 2004
Reminiscent of those soggy comedies Disney used to churn out during the 90s -- the ones that starred Jim Belushi. Yet Mac manages to elevate it to the middle of the standings.
September 20, 2004
Mac, smooth and funny as ever, ... gives an all-star effort for a losing cause.

This is your standard genre fare: Smart-ass player gets schooled, finds love, and is redeemed in time for the final big game.
September 19, 2004
A pleasant film in a genre where pleasant just means you're not trying hard enough.
