Storyline

In the 12-years-since comedic sequel to 1993's The Sandlot, a new group of kids have moved into the sandlot: David Durango (Max Lloyd-Jones), Mac McKing (Brett Kelly), Saul (Cole Evan Weiss), his deaf brother Sammy "Fingers" (Sean Berdy), Tarquell (Neilen Benvegnu), Scotty's younger brother Johnnie Smalls (James Willson), and a surprise for The Sandlot 2, a girl in the group Hayley Goodfarier ('Samantha Burton'). When Johnnie mistakenly sends a model rocket over the junk fence in The Great Fear's yard, the gang must retrieve it. Even with the help of The Retriever (Griffin Reilly Evans, the director's son), a kid who steals dog tags and finds The Great Fear's a challenge. Yes, complete with another psychotic name-calling scene with Mac and little league captain Singleton (Reece Thompson). And, of course, with James Earl Jones as Mr. Mertle. Written by Alex Madison <SouthParkFan1-2905>

Goofs

When The Great Fear's chain is welded to a Battleship anchor, the anchor is huge, larger than the person welding it. When you see the anchor in all the shots afterwards, where the kids try to get the model, the anchor is tiny about 20% the size of the one welded on in the beginning. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Hayley and David went all the way through high school together. After that, they went their separate ways. Ten years after college, they met again. At that meeting, just like the first time he had ever had a chance to talk to her in grade school, David was so nervous he couldn't speak, so she spoke for him, and she said, ''You're supposed to say, "'Will you marry me?'" And he did.

!!!Beware!!! Watching this will make your life waste away!
25 March 2006 | by yoyodre2003See all my reviews

This is not how a sequel is made. It completely lacks originality or continuity with the first movie. This is supposedly a small town. Isn't odd that during the 60s and 70s that none of the minority characters in either movie face any type of discrimination? And what's with the mixed message with the female lead being feminist but she needs the male lead to come to her defense? If they wanted to add female empowerment, then why didn't one of the other female characters stand up to that guy? And if I'm not mistaken Scotty said that his family only stayed in that neighborhood until almost through junior high. Did they move back? Either way, shouldn't Scotty, Johnny's brother, be about 21 or 22? I find it hard to believe that if he spent all that time with Mr. Mertle that his parents never were introduced to him. They even have a stereotypical black character based on the soul 70s blaxploitation era who dresses more 60s hippie with a dash of modern natural hair than anything remotely resembling the movie's time setting. This movie is a completely shallow rehash of the original done inferiorly.
