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

The opening monologue is based almost entirely upon Gladriel's opening monologue from "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001). See more »

I watched one of those blocks on ABC family that had both the original movie and the sequel back to back. I had never seen the Sandlot before, so I watched it and-lo and behold-it was amazing. It was original, it was funny, and it had kids, which at the time I could relate to. Therefore, I thought that Sandlot 2 would be almost as amazing. I was wrong. The acting was horrible, the plot was the exact copy of the original only with different actors. It was a cheap carbon copy of the original. Plus, a lot of it made no sense and had no purpose.
My advice: Don't see this movie. It will save you about an hour and a half of your time to do-or see-something else worthwhile
