Major League is a lighthearted, entertaining film that also happens to be hysterically funny.

If more films could just be entertaining, I might go to the theater more often.

I like Charlie Sheen and he is worth watching in anything he does, especially "Two and a Half Men.

And there's that romantic storyline which is a complete waste of time and which rears its ugly head again in the end at a time when all the focus clearly should be on the team.

Also worth watching are the edited for television scenes.

Sure it's a cliché.

It's a minor film, but it's thoroughly entertaining.

They are all funny and entertaining.

It contains every sports cliche since the Greeks first threw a spear.

Major League isn't a movie that's going to solve world peace or anything but if you want a light hearted, entertaining film that is hysterically funny then you need to see this.

The whole thing is very predictable which wouldn't be so bad if the movie at least kept you laughing all the way to the ending you know is coming.

it wasn't insanely funny or anything,but it had some amusing moments and was certainly entertaining.

Reality is probably a bit more mundane.

The sequels were horrible and not worth watching, but this first one was wonderfully entertaining.

Easy going charm and an assortment of nutty characters make this one of the most entertaining sport's comedies ever.

While the result is a bit predictable, the journey is very entertaining.

An entertaining and funny motion picture with some flaws in some areas.

Russo is totally wasted but Ross, Haysbert and others in the team are reasonably enjoyable while Whitton delivers her character well.

The ending, while predictable, is sure to delight.

Overall then, hardly the greatest film ever made, or even that good a film but one that just about does enough to be enjoyable if you are in the mood for it.

Major League may be formulaic, especially in the second half of the film, but it is memorably unpredictable in moments and quite charming.

In short, I found this to be an entertaining comedy and I have rated it accordingly.

The story was intriguing one as well, the basic story is this "evil" GM of a terrible baseball team, and of course its a woman, is trying to get the team to loose all their games so she can move the team to Miami and out of Ohio where she hates being and replace the current players with better "personel" Along with that story, there is kind of a love triangle with Berenger/Russo/and her new man.

Well yes it is of course, but Major League has charm in abundance and with a pretty smart cast having fun, the result is a truly enjoyable and laugh filled piece of fluff.

), but in retrospect, MAJOR LEAGUE is most probably my favorite among the bunch just b/c it is so plain entertaining!

Overall, not a great work of art or anything, but undeniably an enjoyable, solid film with plenty of good lines and laughs.

Saw it in the theater as well as many times on video/cable and have always enjoyed it.

It's an enjoyable time.

A tie between this one is part II for the most entertaining.

Very engaging too.

This movie is pure Velveeta and packs every sports-flick cliche ever seen into 90 minutes...

entertaining and amusing,though not insanely funny baseball movie .

But when that team went bad, the larger the stadium and they had the largest in baseball looked all the more empty.

Funny, engaging and entertaining .

A Very Entertaining Romp .
