Major League (1989)
Director: David S. Ward
Cast: Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen, Wesley Snipes
Synopsis: The Cleveland Indians haven’t won a Division Title in 34 years and owner Donald Phelps has died leaving his showgirl wife Rachel Phelps in charge. She purposefully puts a terrible team on the field so that the team will finish dead last so she can break the lease with the city and move the team to Miami. The team gets off to a rocky start but after a while start to play like a team and knowledge of Mrs. Phelps plan gives them the extra edge they need.
Trivia: When Cerrano hits the homerun in the final game against the Yankees, it was not in the script for him to run around the bases with the bat in his hand. What actually happened was that Dennis Haysbert actually did hit a homerun during the take and was so shocked that he forgot to drop the bat before he started running.
Why I think you should see this: Despite being a sports film which is not always peoples favourite this is an extremely funny film featuring a young Charlie Sheen and Wesley Snipes in a rare comedic role. The rest of the cast is very funny with Tom Berenger and Dennis Haysbert as standouts. Those of you who are fans of Sheen from Two and a Half Men will really enjoy this movie.
