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 »

An improvement over the second
29 May 2007 | by asherkyle-2See all my reviews

Having a baseball-crazy 7-year-old who has watched the original perhaps 17 times and had the critical acumen to describe the second Sandlot movie — which had baseball as an afterthought —as "stupid," this is an improvement. It's actually about sandlot baseball, with some solid themes about teamwork, friendship and loyalty. And, while still dumb, it has enough entertainment value to be watchable. The lift from "Back to The Future," is patently obvious, but by establishing with an ultra-prima-donna major leaguer and transferring his repellent personality intact to his 12 year old de-resurrection, his character development is credible within a lot of swirling silliness, and is sometimes moving. Tolerable for adults, the DVD is one that little leaguers will devour.
