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

Being a big fan of the original movie, which is a classic, I was extremely disappointed with this poor attempt at making a sequel. Almost every scene and piece of dialog that made the original movie so great was painfully duplicated with no success. Circumstances, events, dialog, and most characters were all duplicated with abysmal results. Each member of the cast of the original movie perfectly executed their character with realism reminding me of my own childhood, where as these young actors in Sandlot 2, have still have yet to learn that acting is more than just reading your lines. Even the classic "Squints Kissing scene" was painfully duplicated. However all is not lost. One character in this movie came out as genuine and worthy of the viewer's empathy. That was Haley Goodfairer played by the débutant Samantha Burton. Besides being quite the lovely young lady, she was quite adept at playing the "self-assured- head-of-the-liberated-cool-girl's-clique". I would compare her acting ability to the outstanding Sara Polley, and I look forward to her next acting endeavor. But the Sandlot 2 you are better off watching the original over.
