      Critics Consensus

      A gross-out comedy that is more sophomoric than funny, The Benchwarmers goes down swinging.

      David Mattin BBC.com The Benchwarmers is better than it should have been. Only, that's not saying much. Rated: 2/5 Jun 6, 2006 Full Review Damon Wise Empire Magazine Even Jon Lovitz with a Batmobile, a dwarf attack in a playroom, and David Spade's best wig ever can't save this mawkish misfire. Rated: 1/5 Jun 2, 2006 Full Review Trevor Johnston Time Out Just when the baseball slapstick starts wearing thin, a final-reel gush of truly cynical sentiment on behalf of the physically challenged sends the ordeal-factor off the scale. Jun 1, 2006 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com It takes a very special person to enjoy The Benchwarmers. I am such a person. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 2, 2020 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof A very bad movie and that unfortunately will raise enough money at the box office to continue financing this kind of nonsense. [Full Review in Spanish] Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Simon Weaving Screenwize In the last line of the film, as the final credits thankfully disappear, Richie casually says "that was a waste of time wasn't it?" Yes. Definitely. Rated: 1/5 Oct 10, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      SkyRo P My son recently watched the movie Benchwarmers for the first time, and it was a joy to see him laughing his way through the entire film. As he is becoming more interested in baseball, this movie really resonated with him. Despite not being a flawless film, its humor and quirky wit kept him entertained from start to finish. While it may not be a cinematic masterpiece, its over-the-top and hilarious nature makes it a worthwhile watch. I highly recommend checking it out if you're in the mood for some silly, yet entertaining humor. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review James E A cute, easy laugh movie with a simple message and a decent amount of gross out humor type chuckles. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/22/24 Full Review Vivek B One of the best baseball movies that I keep coming back to. Funny and relaxing. 5 stars. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Victor P I thought it was clever and funny. It's like The Bad News Bears meets The Three Stooges. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Adam D Good lord this movie isn't funny at all and has a bunch of washed up losers in it. The only thing worse is the sequel. More losers who have no career from top to bottom GList cast at best Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/27/23 Full Review JohnVanderVelde1 One of my favorite movies. From beginning to end it's so stupid it makes you die laughing. The storyline is so outrageous it makes for a great laugh. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
