Trivia

The line given by John Kruk near the end of the movie, "I'm not looking for athletes, I'm looking for ball players" comes from an interview given by Kruk while playing for the Philadelphia Phillies. In the interview, he stated that he was not an athlete; he was a baseball player. See more »

Quotes

Tommy: [after explaining why he's going to play on Neeman's tam] I can't risk my future for the sandlot, can I?
Timber: [his first lines] Maybe you're the one who shouldn't speak for a while.

Fun, family movie
16 May 2007 | by brandonpoldsSee all my reviews

This movie was a lot of fun to watch. The one liners, the music and video montages made the movie entertaining and easy to stay involved in. It was great to see Squints and Benny back and I would definitely agree that the Sandlot team captures your hearts. This movie reminds me of A Knight's Tale when the main character states that he wants to "...change his stars". Tommy gets just that, a chance to change his stars and along the way he develops character, softens his heart and wins many friends. Sandlot Heading Home is definitely an original breath of fresh air compared to #2 and is as entertaining as the first one. My daughter (age 9) and her friends have watched it over and over again. Not many movies out there that are really safe for all ages yet entertaining for adults.....this is one of them. Great fun for the whole family!!
