major_league_iii_back_to_the_minors_movie_poster“God… if You can hear me, *please*… send me *one* real baseball player. That’s all I ask. And if you can’t grant me that then… well… you might as well just strike me dead right here and now. [he gets hit with the baseball]” – Gus

Number of Times Seen – 2 (2 Sep 2009 and 31 Oct 2016)

Brief Synopsis – A minor league Baseball manager tries to get his team up to par as he is being pressured by the Owner of the Major League Franchise to promote a young new star athlete.

My Take on it – It’s actually funny that this film is considered to be part of the Major League series because it has very little resemblance to the previous movies.

Yes, there are a few characters who are carried over, but in general, this situation is just poorly executed.

I’ve also been a big fan of Scott Bakula and love most of his roles, but it was even hard to like his character here despite him probably being the best thing in this film.

All in all, this film is a complete waste of time and instead of being fun like the original film, this one feels much more like a farce than anything resembling a movie with a serious story.

Bottom Line – Has little to no connection to the first two films in the series and is really poorly done.  Always loved Bakula, but even he wasn’t so great here (despite being the best thing here).  Complete waste of time because it isn’t interesting at all and seems more like a farce than a fun movie like the original was.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Roger Dorn (Bernsen), Pedro Cerrano (Haysbert), Duke Temple (Yeager) and Harry Doyle (Uecker) are the only characters to appear in all three films in the Major League series. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy
