      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Major League may be predictable and formulaic, but buoyed by the script's light, silly humor -- not to mention the well-built sports action sequences and funny performances.

      Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times Ward directs his actors as adroitly as he has written for them, and the vulnerability that he allows his three stars to reveal is really what makes the movie work. May 6, 2014 Full Review Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune It skims along agreeable surfaces, expertly balancing its comedy with melodrama and fulfilling expectations right on schedule. Rated: 3/4 May 6, 2014 Full Review Elizabeth Maupin Orlando Sentinel It has its moments, but it also has long, slow stretches where you feel like standing up and wandering around and maybe going out to hunt up a beer. That's fine for baseball, but it's not the way movies are supposed to work. Mar 20, 2013 Full Review Allison Rose FlickDirect It's hard to believe that this fun, creative film is turning thirty years old but it still stands the test of time and is a joy to watch. Rated: 4.5/5 Jul 4, 2019 Full Review John Ferguson Radio Times Amiable but predictable. Rated: 3/5 Oct 31, 2016 Full Review Roger Hurlburt South Florida Sun-Sentinel Sheen, as an ace fireball pitcher called Wild Thing by the adoring fans, is excellent; so is Bernsen as a star-struck third baseman, whose portfolio is more important that a hard grounder in the hole.

      Nathan W There was very little movie here and nothing that I found even remotely humorous. The main plot of the film wasnt introduced until an hour into the film and by then it was too late. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/23/24 Full Review James S Awesome baseball movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Bryce G I might be a Cleveland fan, but this is my favorite movie of all time. Hilarious, uplifting and tense. "Just a bit outside" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review Chris G Iconic for being packed with jokes and killer performances over a twisting story, Major League still succeeds on all fronts, especially whenever Wesley Snipes is on screen. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review M M Pretty boring - nothing happened. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Webb H I don't even like baseball, and this is still one of the best sports movies I have ever seen. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
