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.
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.
August 14, 2007
This one's out of the park.
February 9, 2006
Deliberately Louisville-slugs its audience over the head.
September 21, 2004
It's a solid base hit.
September 18, 2004
An uncompromisingly grown-up comedy that any willing adult can see in any multiplex in the country.
September 18, 2004
Good-looking and smooth, with a great soundtrack...
September 17, 2004
The script is much like a nine-inning sitcom that uses an obvious formula to tell a familiar story while garnering cheap laughs.
September 17, 2004
Although the writing and direction are flabby, the drama contrived and the romance utterly unbelievable.
September 17, 2004
Bassett and Mac deserve better vehicles for their charm and talent.
September 17, 2004
An intermittently charming remake of the 1992 Tom Selleck yarn Mr. Baseball.
September 17, 2004
It's no Bull Durham, but it certainly gives Major League a run for its money.
September 17, 2004
Slumps under the weight of product endorsements and a misguided romantic subplot.
September 17, 2004
Even the weakest baseball films absorb some of the charm of the game. Mr. 3000 does that, and throws in a lot of Bernie Mac laughs in the bargain.
September 17, 2004
Comes up a few laughs short of being something worth leaving the house for.
September 17, 2004
[Mac] gives surprising wisdom and heart -- along with the laughs -- to what could have been just another generic baseball comedy.
September 17, 2004
Director Charles Stone III and writers Eric Champnella, Keith Mitchell and Howard Michael Gould have reconfigured a sports movie plot to bring to it depth as well as laughter, and, better yet, made it unpredictable.
September 17, 2004
If the role of Ross was not written for Mac, it was certainly tailored for him. Just as a champion athlete carries a team on his back, Mac carries the film.
