In an interview with Howard Stern, Adam Sandler said he specifically cast Spade and Schneider to force them to work together in order to smooth over a rift that the two had with each other. See more »
In the very first game when Richie is up to bat, he missed the ball twice and gets a strike for each miss. However, he swings at the third pitch and makes brief contact with the ball just before the catcher catches it. The catcher says that he is still out even though he made contact with the ball but this would only be true if it were a bunt. If the batter swings and makes contact with the ball, but does not put it in play in fair territory-a foul ball-he is charged with an additional strike, except when there are already two strikes. Thus, a foul ball with two strikes leaves the count unchanged. See more »

I am not a huge fan of this sort of comedy, admittedly, but I watch quite a few as the parent of 4 teenage boys. I usually rate them in the category of "kept me occupied, didn't hate it, wouldn't watch it again" rather than as memorable, or works of comedic genius. For example, I found Wayne's World, Dodgeball, and most Adam Sandler movies to be very reasonable to watch, but thought Kicking and Screaming was not entertaining. This film was much worse than that. The characters are not appealing and not funny. I couldn't sympathize with any of them, nor could I laugh at them or with them. The gags are old and not well executed. The movie failed on every level for me. Junior high boys would find it entertaining, everyone else should rent something else.
