Rating: 2.5/4 -- A meat and potatoes '80s movie, that maybe doesn't 'taste great,' but at least is 'less filling.' [Blu-ray] Full Review

Slick predictability is about all it has in mind, down to the last trite freeze-frame. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- The absurdity of the Indians winning the pennant in 1989 helped make the film a lot of fun, and it was a great little fantasy for Tribe fans back in the day. Full Review

Rating: 4.5/5 -- It's hard to believe that this fun, creative film is turning thirty years old but it still stands the test of time and is a joy to watch. Full Review

Sheen, as an ace fireball pitcher called Wild Thing by the adoring fans, is excellent; so is Bernsen as a star-struck third baseman, whose portfolio is more important that a hard grounder in the hole. Full Review

Product Description:

When the widow of the owner of the Cleveland Indians realizes that she is stuck with a small stadium in a cold climate, she decides that a move to a Southern, warmer climate is called for. Unfortunately the only way she can unload her stadium is due to low attendance, so she needs to plan for a losing and lackluster season. The team of misfits and losers that she has hired, though, decide that if they really pull through, they may not wind up in last place and not be the losers that the owner thinks that they are. This offbeat baseball comedy, starring Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen and Rene Russo, was a surprise 1989 hit.

Plot Synopsis:

Cleveland Indians owner Rachel Phelps puts together the worst team she can possibly find, in the hopes that audiences will stay away and she can break her lease and move the team to Miami. Of course, the team of losers catches on to the scam and, with new-found motivation, conspire to foil her plans.
