Major League ***

What can I say about “Major League”? How can anybody not like Wild Thing. This was the movie that showed that Charlie Sheen had some comedic chops.

Tom Berenger also showed a comedic side that we didn’t really know was there. Together they star as baseball players who play for the Cleveland Indians. The team is in such dire financial condition that the owner wants to move to a new city but they have a long term lease with their current building. As it turns out there is a weird clause in the lease that says if they hit an all time low in attendance then they can get out of their lease early. This is why they put together a rag tag group to intentionally lose games.

Of course you can probably tell how it all ends up. This is a sports movie after all. No cliche is left behind. But the actors make their characters funny and entertaining which makes for a great movie.
