Engagement is limited – there's really no story to carry you along, it's just a (dysfunctional) team playing baseball.

But, come on, how predictable can you get?

If you were to watch it without constant comparison to the first, it is a pretty entertaining film and better than alot of other sequels.

A recurring cameo by the ever funny Randy Quaid is totally wasted, Sheen and Berenger look bored.

The ending is a boring and repetitive replay of the of the final moments of Major League(1989).

It's a very enjoyable, worthwhile sequel that I feel is criminally underpraised while the original may be a tad overcelebrated.

I enjoyed it better the second time I watched it, once the initial shock had worn off.

Also The game at the end is thrilling.

" The plot is predictable.

When Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger) first stepped out of the taxi at the beginning of this movie, he looked so much older that it was stunning.

It is completely predictable, and boring.

This movie is blasted for predictable, clichéd writing when there was just as much in the first one.

We are talking about sports "satiety," professional stagnation, and even a banal change of reference points in the career of our heroes.

I think there were a few too many new characters trying to be developed in a short amount of time and it left the movie disjointed, which didn't keep the funny parts held together or the viewer continually interested.

James Gammon, Bob Uecker and (incredibly enough) Corbin Bernsen provide the film's only entertaining moments.

The "love triangle" that Rick Vaughn finds himself entangled in is pointless, as is the rivalry with Pedro Cerrano and the Japanese guy.

(And my grandmother could have played a better Jake Taylor than the hypnotically boring Tom Berenger.

I have a copy of an early version of the script and this would have made a much tighter, fast paced movie than what was delivered to the cinemas.

Add to that a general lack of character empathy, and you have a movie which shouldn't be enjoyable.

But I guess it must be hard to follow-up something so great that wasn't really trying to be in the first place.

Had they just filmed some of the off-camera moments and pieced them together with some of the core character scenes, it would have made for a much more entertaining film.

When Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger) first stepped out of the taxi at the beginning of this movie, he looked so much older that it was stunning.

Save your money and rent the original Major League movie instead.

The first "Major League" was enjoyable (even if it wasn't great or anything) whereas this cash-in sequel is basically just to suck the money out of a film that made more cash at the box office than anyone expected.

You want the film to leave off on a good note and not be inhabited by sequels of lesser quality.

Major League was funny, engaging and exciting and the baseball was reasonably realistic.

II has too many boring parts & more actual 'baseball', in my opinion.

David Keith is the most entertaining person in his villain role.

On the other hand, Major League II feels very clichéd and contrived.

The movie just meanders along, going nowhere.

having said that,the movie was quite entertaining.

I enjoyed it better the second time I watched it, once the initial shock had worn off.
