Love this movie
Verified purchase
I bought this bc we lost our original copy at home. I was a bit nervous to buy an older movie, that wasn’t that popular for “new” but I’m pleasantly surprised! The box was wrapped in plastic like a brand new movie. I’m very happy!
This is a movie from my childhood so I’m pretty fond of it, my brother sister and I can recite pretty much every line.
For 2005 standards, very funny with some good jokes. But for 2019 standards, funny with some offensive and homophobic jokes in there. But it was written by Adam Sandler and you know he’s kind of a one trick pony.

The movie hasn’t aged well but it’s a pretty funny movie, just don’t laugh at the offensive parts.

Love quoting this movie with my nephews
Verified purchase
OK I shall have to start off by saying I am a HUGE Adam Sandler fan. Any comedy of his or from his production company is most likely something I own and watch multiple times (including House Bunny and Grandma's Boy). I watched this one day and thought it was cute and liked the feel good moments during the last game. I had my nephews watch it because it's about baseball and gross out jokes that boys find hilarious and now we quote parts of the film to each other all the time. Mostly using stuff either Carlos, Clark or Ritchie said.
I rate my items on how much enjoyment I get out of them, hence the 5 stars, because I completely understand it's no masterpiece.
Nick Swardson as Howie is my fav and he makes this movie even more fun with his nonsense.

Audio/video not synced.

The movie itself was good. However the audio and video feed was off through the whole video making it hard to watch. Nothing we did fixed the issue. We were disappointed.

An entertaining baseball movie
Verified purchase
A benefit of being a Prime customer is Prime Video. If you love baseball you should enjoy this movie. My husband & son watched it & my husband gave it a 6 out of 10.

This is one of the worst movies I've even seen
Verified purchase
watched with 14yr old grandson. Other than calling out the bullies it has no other redeeming qualities. Embarrassing
