The best part about the film is the diverse group of actors they managed to get to be in the film. Charlie Sheen reminds us of how cool he used to be and Berenger, Snipes and Bernsen turn in solid performances. The funny thing about Wesley Snipes is that he is nowhere to be found on this DVD, including the cover or the credits on the back. I guess Paramount is still bitter over him not returning for MAJOR LEAGUE 2. The characters have since been copied and parodied, but this group meshed well and can still make me laugh.
The movie itself is pretty straight-forward. It knows what it is and doesnít try to be anything but a sports comedy. I could have done without the love triangle they put in, but it didnít slow the movie down too much and itís easy to look past. Sheenís character is the most fun, but Iím glad they didnít make the movie solely about him. Iím also glad they didnít make it about the city of Cleveland. Iíve always wondered what fans of the Indians thought about the movie now that the team is moderately successful. Unfortunately, that might require me to travel to Cleveland and itís just not worth it.
My Kinda Team (23:10): Itís weird that its been almost 20 years since this film first came out. Itís clear in this featurette when we see how much older everyone looks. This is a pretty typical featurette with a little bit of footage you may not have seen before.
A Major League Look at Major League (14:27): Only Cleveland Indians are interviewed here and since they donít really have many superstars, I didnít find it too interesting. They give very typical commentary over various clips from the film.
Bob Ueker, Just a Bit Outside (12:43): Mr. Belvedereís employer gets his own featurette that basically tells his life story. Iíve always like Bob, so this was a nice addition.
Alternate Ending (4:19): Wow. This would have ruined the entire movie. Without giving too much away, it completely contradicts the rest of the film and would have been horrible.
