A transfer student to a rough high school tries joining the cheer-leading squad and she not only faces off against the head cheerleader, but against her former school in preparation for a cheer-off competition.
In the 12-years-since comedic sequel to 1993's The Sandlot, a new group of kids have moved into the sandlot: David Durango (Max Lloyd-Jones), Mac McKing (Brett Kelly), Saul (Cole Evan Weiss), his deaf brother Sammy "Fingers" (Sean Berdy), Tarquell (Neilen Benvegnu), Scotty's younger brother Johnnie Smalls (James Willson), and a surprise for The Sandlot 2, a girl in the group Hayley Goodfarier ('Samantha Burton' ). When Johnnie mistakenly sends a model rocket over the junk fence in The Great Fear's yard, the gang must retrieve it. Even with the help of The Retriever (Griffin Reilly Evans, the director's son), a kid who steals dog tags and finds The Great Fear's a challenge. Yes, complete with another psychotic name-calling scene with Mac and little league captain Singleton (Reece Thompson). And, of course, with James Earl Jones as Mr. Mertle. Written by

David M. Evans & James Earl Jones were the only actors to have re-praised their original roles. See more »
The model of the space shuttle includes a rust colored external fuel tank. In the early flights of the space shuttle the tank was painted white. Most likely if any models existed during development of the shuttle they would have had the tank painted white. See more »
There is nothing original in this movie. The key plot points are entirely recycled from the first Sandlot movie. And for that reason alone, it loses all emotional impact.
I will give them credit for some good period pieces. The bikes and cars and some of the hairstyles look very 1972. But by the same token, "Hayley Goodfairer"???? I don't think parents were cursing their children with the name Hayley back in '72 yet. And Hayley Goodfairer's lips could only have been modeled after Angelina Jolie's. Weird.....
It would have been nice if there had been something new and interesting in the movie. As it is, it's a total loss.
Well, I take that back. On the DVD, there is a pretty good 10 minute retrospective on the Original Sandlot, with the child actors who are now young adults. THAT is worth watching.
