The Marksmen is about a native Wausau boy named Tommy Madden, who makes it big in big league baseball, but is forced to leave in disgrace. He returns home after the sudden death of his mother, and faces his father's disappointment in him, even though others consider him a hero. With the comfort of his high school sweetheart, he faces his past and leads a new team, The Marksmen, made up of his hometown buddies, to the national softball fastpitch tournament.

what were they thinking?
16 July 2001 | by skinyjoeymerlinoSee all my reviews

Actually, was anyone involved with this all-out disaster thinking at all? My personal guess no, and if they were, I'd rather not know about what.

My brother and I decided to watch it just for fun, because we heard alot of it was filmed where my grandfather lives which is in the central wisconsn area. Wow,it was plain unbelievable. Horrible beyond all our expectations. I can now tell anyone who's interested: You must see this for yourself to realize the sheer magnitude of it's badness. I give up. I'll never understand how this movie managed to get made, or released, for that matter. I never thought I'd give anything a 1, but this is indeed as worthy candidate as I've ever seen. so 1* is my vote, and I'd rate it lower if it were possible. Wow. Watch and learn.
