The movie Major League follows these “baseball players ”through tryouts for the Cleveland Indians. It is by far one of the funniest sports movies I have ever seen. Through the entirety of the movie there was never a dull moment. Some of the funniest scenes from the movie were when Willy Mays Hayes attempted to slide into second base but came up way short and when Roger Cedeno hits the bird and runs out to make sure it’s alive and is tagged out. The actors, the music and the clothing style are typical of the 1980’s era. Charlie Sheen aka Wild Thing was in the prime of his acting career during the decade along with Tom Berenger, Wesley Snipes and Rene Russo. In the 1980’s a hit song came out titled Wild Thing and it became a vastly popular song and it became Charlie Sheen’s nickname in the movie. Fashion in the 1980’s was absolutely ridiculous. This is no different for the movie Major League Willy May Hays has the gangster gold chain; Wild Thing has his ripped up leather jacket and the lightning bolts shaved into his hair. Tom Berenger dresses as any older man in the 1980’s would; loafers with jeans, a button down dress shirt and sport coat.
If there was to be a main theme surrounding the movie it would have to be the Cleveland Indians putting aside their differences and becoming a team and the end result is more than satisfactory.
I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone, not just sports fans because it is a hilarious movie.
