Storyline

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 Alex Madison <SouthParkFan1-2905>

Start tearing this Sandlot down
19 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Finally, it aired on FOX Family channel last night. So, what does a movie doer like me on a Sunday night with nothing to do, do? Well, other things other than watching this dreck.

Already into the opening scenes, there were cheesy lines, poor acting, lame catch phrases, and killed everything that made the original Sandlot a classical family movie. The infamous rival scene was completely tarnished by the lame insults, and the carnival scene was completely deranged. Don't even mention the lame attempts to try and get the "Space Shuttle" because that's more than enough.

I had high hopes for this movie, a movie that would at least make sense, and this one does not even portray that. Other than the pretty (and possibly has some potential) Samantha Burton push and shove through the lamest scenes, the rest of the cast (even James Earl Jones, who I was very disappointed), was atrocious. Never again had I saw such film that's original do so well, and this one? Well...

Let's look at more reasons why this film isn't worth the watch. The kissing scene was rearranged at the carnival where Sam gets a slobber over one of the kissing booth attendants. Completely stupid, wasteful, and so cliché. The respect over the boys and how they treat girls was treated at worst. In the beginning, with the reluctance to share the field together, made absolute no sense at all. At least try to make the hatred more interesting rather than just a kid grudge! See the original, you'll love it more, and get more kicks. I guarantee that.

1/10.
