In the spirit of the little man beating the big man comes The Benchwarmers. three guys against
little league teams to win a championship to where all the kids that get picked on will have a stadium to play on. Hmmmm where
is this going?
The three geeks are: Gus, Richie, and Clark. Played by Rob Schnieder, David Spade, and John
Heder. Richie and Clark are the worst baseball players in the world, so Gus basically wins all the games single handedly
since he's experienced. This has the pontential of funniness. However, there is something else involved..crap.
Ok there some funny moments in this, mostly involving Spade's character, and a moment where
Heder's chracter craps in an out-house, but other than that its a pretty horrendous piece of work. In fact this turned out
to be more of kids film than the trailers tell us. Really, at the end instead of them playing its the geeky kids
who get bullied all the time that get to play in the end. And they freaking get the mustard kicked off their faces! But no
one cares, because at least the kids go to play. Thats what this movie is about. Break my nose, shave my head, and call me
blad guy with a broken nose.
Save your money, if you want to rent it, go ahead, its not like it will kill you, but it just
might, it just might.
