An ok movie
31 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Well i just saw this last night. I enjoyed it despite it pretty much being the same concept form the previous films. Buddy is missing at the start of the Championship, but arrives to save the day as always. The one thing that was different is buddy got himself out of the trouble this time with out the help of the kids. One thing i will nitpick is Noah Framm why was his last name framm that was Josh and Andrea fathers last name. So Noah should have had a different last name(since they share the same mother but have different Dad), unless his father Patrick took the Framm name.

This is obviously 3 years after the 7th inning stretch taking into fact that in that movie Andrea was just going into middle school 6th grade. In this one , she was ending 8th grade. I guess that would make Josh going to be a senior in College

It's a film that most kids will enjoy, some adults might not simple due to its basically the same thing only different sports, and slightly different situation. This is the first they have ever done something during the `Summer' versus the school year so that was different
