Movie Info

In this sequel to the 1993 box-office hit The Sandlot, it's 1972, and a new bunch of neighborhood kids have taken over the field where they play baseball all summer. Saul (Cole Evan Weiss) is the unofficial leader of the group, who heads up the baseball team and looks after his younger brother, Sammy (Sean Berdy), who can't hear but does play-by-play on the games using sign language. Saul has to face the indignity of letting girls play on his team, but things get even worse when one of them brings her dad's toy rocket to the field. The model accidentally sails over the fence and into the yard of Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones), owner of the meanest dog in town, leaving the kids with a serious dilemma about getting it back. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Sandlot 2

  • Apr 07, 2013
    Over the years, "The Sandlot" has become outdated (as far as sequels go), but the studio must have seen a silver lining in this script, because it was made, and to put it nicely, it sucks.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.

    Completely appauling and rancid. WHY was this film made? It is essentially the same as the first, but more of a cheeseball than any film I have ever seen. If you haven't seen it, don't.
