Storyline

Stan Ross was a baseball superstar who turned his back on the game years ago when he finally hit 3,000 hits. Years later, he's now a successful, self-made entrepreneur whose many businesses revolve around his title: Mr. 3000. But a clerical error has proven that Stan is just short three hits of his spectacular hit record. Now, with time on his side and the potential to be inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Stan must return back to the game and get back his title. But things have changed with age, and as Stan finds out, it's not too easy to get back into the game when he hasn't played for years, and he's nearing 50. Written by monkeykingma

Mr 3000 The movie that everyone should be forced to watch.
26 March 2005 | by david-vellaSee all my reviews

This movie is not only a work of art but every single second is gripping and welds you to your seat.

If you have kids you can watch it with them and explain what you learn from this movie, buffering the scenes that might be a little spicy which are not that chilly in today's world.

If you want to have a good time, and enjoy the thrill of learning something in an entertaining way then watch this film. It's terrific content and wisdom seeps from its seams like tea from a teabag.

Well done to all the actors, writers and producers. I don't know what criteria gives a movie Oscars, hopefully it is not just the millions they dump into it. I would have easily given it best actor and best screen play.

Not telling you any of the story here so that you go and watch it.
