RATED: PG/REGION O/1:85/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1

Those Cleveland Indians are at it again! After losing in the ALCS the year before, the Indians are determined to make it into the World Series this time! First, though, they have to contend with Rachel Phelps again when she buys back the team. Also, has Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn lost his edge? Are Jake’s knees strong enough to make it as a catcher another year? These and other questions are answered as the Indians recapture the magic and win the championship “their way”

In Major League II we are once again with the Cleveland Indians after they lost the big game following the events of the last movie. They are having trouble getting their stuff together at first here as well as Wild Thing has gone mainstream, Willie Mays Hayes is hitting for power instead of using the speed he was known for, and they have all sorts of other issues from chemistry on the field to chemistry off the field and all other sorts of drama! I actually grew up watching this one a lot more often than I did the original and while I know some had issue with Wesley Snipes no longer being Willie Pays Hayes and that part being re-casted, I had no issue with it because I didn’t mind the new actor or the performance he gives. It’s just a fun movie all around for me. I also admit that I’m a big fan of baseball in general so that probably helps.

I’d probably go as far as to say that this is a movie that for many reasons matches up to the quality of the original and in some ways, I feel it passes it. It’s got some baseball stuff, it has some team tension, and some drama in the personal lives of the players. It all comes together for what I think might be one of the more overlooked comedies of its time. It comes to us here by Sony with its on-demand service. Unlike other on-demand discs services, Sony actually has its movies pressed on-demand so there is no BD-R here. The quality of this one looks nice (but not outstanding) and I’m very happy to have it to go along with the original film on Blu-ray. It’s just as good as it in a number of ways.
