Boy the characters on the Indians Baseball Team. Willie Mays Hayes, The Wild Thing, The Voo Doo Man, and the ageing catcher and more all are loaded with comedic moments. Even old Ueck gets into the act. The story line is simple but plenty effective. Its not on the level of Bull Durham or White Men Can't Jump but there is sure plenty to laugh about.

A baseball comedy and slob comedy rolled into one, this one actually works as entertainment, if not as a piece of cinematic mastery. James Gammon is the has-been manager hired to lead the last-place Cleveland Indians whose owner wants them to lose so she can sell them. But the team of has-beens and never-wases that he assembles (including Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen, and Wesley Snipes) develops a sense of pride and turns the team around. There's plenty of rowdy humor about sex, race, and whatever else they can make fun of. Look for Rene Russo (in her first film role) as Berenger's romantic interest; Snipes also had his first showy role as Willie Mays Hayes, the team's base-stealing ace.--Marshall Fine
