Goofs

When Mary Lou runs out of the beauty parlor and later gets picked up hitch-hiking, she does not have a purse. However, when she arrives at the bar a few minutes later, she's carrying a large white purse (which she uses to hit Buddy with and then throws at one of the bathroom stalls). See more »

User Reviews

Squeezes life out of a dead situation.
16 March 1999 | by Snap DadSee all my reviews

Squeeze play is a slightly disappointing effort from, what was then an early TROMA team (It was their first financial success! Anyone who's seen one of there films will understand why)

It's about a group of guys who play softball, and after a while their girlfriends get sick of it, so they make an all girl softball team, and the challenge begins.

Obviously this movie sounds a bit tired, but the scene where the guy catches the ball with his butt is hysterical, and the surprise ending when the girls aren't even annoyed seems a bit unrealistic, but who cares? This is movie is supposed to be fun, and generally it is.
