Charles Gitonga Maina,
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
Kaputnik Satelitle <RavenWerkheiserHexorcist>
Mel says the ballpark builders have 24 hours to build the ballpark. This is impossible because it would take over 24 hours to lay the cement and let it dry, let alone build the rest of the park including the pool and slide, which would take several days to finish by itself. See more »
[upon seeing Carlos enter]
Hey, what's going on here? How come he's playing?
Oh, ah, I couldn't play him before because he was feeling ill.

He's got documentation. Play ball!

Along with Nacho Libre, this has to be one of the worst movies since Street Fighter The Movie. Benchwarmers must have aimed towards being "stupid funny" so much that it lost total contact with what the word stupid and/or funny really means. The actors who took part in this film just took a large drop in their careers. I can understand Napoleon Dynamite (which I thought was equally dumb) has some value in the sense that you can laugh at a loser, but taking it as far as Benchwarmers and just throwing out all respect for yourself is another story. I would never recommend this motion picture to anyone. Instead, I'd give it as a gift to someone I hate, because after watching it, I think you'll lose some sanity. I also noted how it says five nominees...what was it nominated for? Most idiodic catch phrases fitted into a 2 hour long S#!t fest?
