(comedy, drama, sport)
Stan Ross was a baseball superstar who turned his back on the game years ago when he finally hit 3,000 hits. Years later, he's now a successful, self-made entrepreneur whose many businesses revolve around his title: Mr. 3000. But a clerical error has proven that Stan is just short three hits of his spectacular hit record. Now, with time on his side and the potential to be inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Stan must return back to the game and get back his title. But things have changed with age, and as Stan finds out, it's not too easy to get back into the game when he hasn't played for years, and he's nearing 50.

If you like baseball, here is a good film for you. Bernie Mac is perfect in the title role as a baseball player with a beer ego the size of Milwaukee who is retiring after he believes his success 3000th, which will assume a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame. Induction and not many years later, he learns that three of the hits did not count, and returns to the game to get three hits. Mac does a good job and actually develops the character, to aid his return to learn more about being a team player. I really liked this movie when I saw her.
*** From ****
I'm not a fan of Bernie Mac itself, but does a good job in this film. It is a great baseball movie, but most importantly, a movie about growing up and maturing into a responsible human being who is willing to sacrifice for the greater good. It's better than I thought it would be, even allowing for the cheesy, semi-obligatory hump scenes with his girlfriend.
SPOILER ALERT - do not read past here if you have not seen the film.
The whole story is apparently based on Bernie's a selfish idiot trying to recover the 3-base hits in the major leagues who withdrew because they had been sent by mistake. His whole life is wrapped around one of the few holders of success in the 3000 majors, so dedicated to the recovery of them solely for his own ego. Along the way, however, he discovers something he should have known all along (and most professional sports figures have forgotten) - it is a team sport, not an individual sport. At the end of the last game of the season, with his last shot at number 3000 on the line, Bernie Bunt provides a sacrifice for your team can win the game and take third place. Gives his shot in 3000 and in doing so, became a star more than he would have if he had taken a great swing.
