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

I watched one of those blocks on ABC family that had both the original movie and the sequel back to back. I had never seen the Sandlot before, so I watched it and-lo and behold-it was amazing. It was original, it was funny, and it had kids, which at the time I could relate to. Therefore, I thought that Sandlot 2 would be almost as amazing. I was wrong. The acting was horrible, the plot was the exact copy of the original only with different actors. It was a cheap carbon copy of the original. Plus, a lot of it made no sense and had no purpose.
My advice: Don't see this movie. It will save you about an hour and a half of your time to do-or see-something else worthwhile
