Storyline

Gus Cantrell is a major league pitcher in the twilight of his career. He contacted by Roger Dorn, General Manager of the Minnesota Twins, and offered the role of managing the Buzz, the Twins' AAA team. Cantrell accepts but regrets it almost immediately. The Buzz is a dysfunctional no-hoper team, with an odd assortment of characters. However, Cantrell quickly sets about forging them into a winning team. Written by grantss

Quotes

Harry Doyle: Yes, sir, I remember Gus Cantrell from the old California AA League. That was before Diet Coke became my beverage of choice. Gus was a pretty fair pitcher, but he'll have to be more than "pretty fair" to bring this bunch close to anything resembling a baseball team.
[turns to color man and places his hand on the mic]
Harry Doyle: They suck.

Major League: Back to the Basics.
21 August 2003 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Horribly unfunny comedy that jumps through all the hoops of a misdirected and miswritten comedy sequel. Everything that made the first film amusing and funny is lacking here, and so is the cast - in fact, the only returning castmember is Corbin Bernsen. And no wonder - just look at his film profile.

One to skip.

1/5 stars -
