So-so sequel to a favorite kids' movie.
A caricaturist would draw stink lines emanating from this direct-to-video stillbirth.
...does feature a brisk pace and several charismatic performances...
...if you've already seen The Sandlot, and that would be almost everyone, you may be disappointed that so very little of anything new has been added.
Certainly funny, charming, and sincere enough to earn a solid B+ from the Sandlot-faithful. (And there are lots of us!)
Over the years, "The Sandlot" has become outdated (as far as sequels go), but the studio must have seen a silver lining in this script, because it was made, and to put it nicely, it sucks. It is a complete rehash of the original, going beat-for-beat. It just gets more and more annoying as the film progresses. I would almost call this movie a remake if it wasn't for a few minor changes. The direction is sloppy, the same effects are reused, and the script is thinner than most sequels I've seen in recent time. I despised the writer as I was watching this film. I don't know how someone could be so uninspired. "The Sandlot 2" is more than just a bad film, it's an insult to the original. Even though there are a few minor references to old characters, there is nothing to see here.
Not very good
This movie is probably the worst movie I've ever seen in my life.
This movie pretty much tries to re-make the original classic, but they fail miserably.
The Sandlot 2 uses pretty much the same characters, except this time they include girls. The girls in this movie cannot play baseball to save their life. They are awful actors, which probably explains why Sandlot 2 was their last movie. The girls use their softball techniques to play baseball, and they claim throughout the movie that "underhand pitches are legal" as if that excuses their lack of skills. Play baseball like a normal person, and stop being weird. Nobody pitches like that.
The script and plot were both pretty much the same. It was frustrating. The acting also drove me crazy. I felt like I was in middle school again, watching kids perform skits in class. Acting was so incredibly awful, I couldn't finish watching the movie.
This sequel completely failed on all levels. It wasn't entertaining or original. It was just a cheap knock off of the amazing classic that is The Sandlot.
im not sure there have been many films more pointless than this. a sequel and a remake attempted in one film. the illusions to the first were cheap attempts to recreate magic, and the script was terrible, making no sense at times. funny how the first sandlot is one of the best kids films of all time, and the sequel is one of the worst.
