In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
Three guys, all their lives, have been living in the shadow of bullies and are determined not to take it anymore. Now they must train with the help of Mel to take on the most offensive and meanest youth baseball teams. Written by

The stadium built for the final game features architectural details borrowed from several Major League parks: Yankee Stadium since 70s (the "wedding-cake" trim on top of the bleachers' wall), Wrigley Field (the brick-and-ivy fences), Fenway Park (the Green Monster fence) and Chase Field (the pool area behind right field).

Well, I am management, so I'm gonna waive the late fee.
Oh, they're not late, but thank you.

I really did not expect the movie to be very good. Don't get me wrong - I thought I'd like it (I love almost every baseball movie ever made) but I had no idea that the film would actually work on multiple levels.
The movie's short, but that's OK as it gets right to the point and never stops. Some of the humor is a bit childish (far jokes), but they actually balance a lot of it out with other childish jokes that make the earlier ones bearable (back to back fart jokes... I don't want to be more specific because it will spoil it when you see it).
I was very pleased with this film and will probably see it again while it's in theaters. If you're somebody who likes any Adam Sandler branded flick then you'll love this one.
