Major League 2
Synopsis: They're back and better than ever! The diehard Cleveland Indians who went from worst to first now cope with fame and its perks as the team tries to hit, hustle and joke its way back to the top.
Reckless thrower Rick Wild Thing Vaughn, catcher Jake Taylor, self adoring infielder Roger Dorn, slugger Pedro Cerrano and more are in for a whole new ballgame in this hilarious swquel. Harry Doyle (Bob Uecker) is back in the booth with colorful play by play, team owner Rachel Phelps shcemes to the hilt and Randy Quaid joins the lineup as a marvelously motor mouthed bleacher bum.

For a sequel I have to say it is pretty close to the quality as the first one. Like the first one it still has a few moments were the baseball part of the story is very inaccurate but overall that part is not as bad as the first one. Many of the original characters are back. Except this time they are not the underdogs but have transitioned into being the team to beat. This cocky attitude leads them down the wrong path and not long they find themselves on the bottom of the standings. With many of the original characters back the acting is about the same. The new faces to the team all seem to fit in well and add to the story. One thing that is a major difference between this film and the first one is the rating. This one is rated PG were as the first one had an R rating. This one if much more family friendly. Less swearing and adult themes. This might bother some people but for me it was hardly noticeable. Overall I liked this one as much as the first one, something that is rare when it comes to sequels.
