Squeezes life out of a dead situation., 16 March 1999
Author: Snap Dad from Australia

Squeeze play is a slightly disappointing effort from, what was then an early TROMA team (It was their first financial success! Anyone who's seen one of there films will understand why)

It's about a group of guys who play softball, and after a while their girlfriends get sick of it, so they make an all girl softball team, and the challenge begins.

Obviously this movie sounds a bit tired, but the scene where the guy catches the ball with his butt is hysterical, and the surprise ending when the girls aren't even annoyed seems a bit unrealistic, but who cares? This is movie is supposed to be fun, and generally it is.
