Bernie Mac stars as a big-headed baseball player who comes out of retirement in Mr. 3000. Find out if this movie hits the a homerun or strikes out!

Mr. 3000 - Baseball Comedy

In Mr. 3000, Bernie Mac stars as Stan Ross, a star first-baseman and egomaniac with the Milwaukee Brewers, who retires immediately after getting his 3000th hit, even though his team is in the middle of a penant race. With 3000 hits, Stan Ross picks up the nickname Mr. 3000 and figures he's a sure thing to get into baseball's Hall of Fame. But nine years later, when a baseball stats guys discovers that Ross' hits have been miscounted and he only has 2,997, the older and out of shape Ross must return to the Brewers and get three more hits.


Mr. 3000 - Slow Story, Good Message

As Stan Ross pursues his 3000th hit, he learns the importance of being a team player, and the pitfalls of being more self-absorbed than Barry Bonds. The best parts of Mr. 3000 are the onfield baseball action scenes and the clubhouse scenes involving a grumpy and self-centered Stan Ross and his much younger teammates (you'll love the scenes where Bernie Mac teaches the Japanese outfielder how to curse). The only problem is that it takes forever to get to these scenes and Mr. 3000 ends up moving along slower than a Tim Wakefield knuckle ball. But, there's also some great one-liners from Bernie Mac and a strong message about the team being more important than the individual.


Mr. 3000 - Homerun or Foul Ball?

Mr. 3000 doesn't quite hit a homerun - but it's definitely a solid double. It's a good sports movie, Bernie Mac is funny and the movie has an uplifting ending (even if it's very predictable). But, if you're a baseball fan, you'll want to see Mr. 3000, even if you wait until it comes out on DVD.


Mr. 3000 - DVD Features

The Mr. 3000 DVD is a must have for baseball fans everywhere. There are a bunch of deleted scenes, with commentary from the director, hilarious bloopers and several behind-the-scenes features. You'll also get commentary throughout the movie from director Charles Stone III.

    What's Worse?

    • A coach that never lets you play.
    • A teammate that never passes the ball.
    • A parent always yelling on the sidelines.
    • A ref that reads brail.
