Boring

It's kind of boring. The first one and second are alot better! They should've stopped at the second one! The only good parts was when benny and squints was on there!

Is It Any Good?

If you mixed Back to the Future with A Christmas Carol and sprinkled in a liberal dose of baseball fandom, you'd end up with this sweet, fun baseball movie that entertains while it instructs.

There are so many delightful things about this film, even if it borrows most of its plot from other films. Yet predictable plot twists are handled with such a kind heart and light touch by director William Dear that you hardly mind. The film is effective and fun, and for kids who've never seen the earlier films, they're likely to want to see them immediately.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
