Product Overview

This baseball-packed 2-Movie Gift Set finds a local dork becoming a hero and a 12-year-old boy becoming the hottest pitcher in Major League Baseball! Includes the exciting family films THE SANDLOT and THE SANDLOT 2!

THE SANDLOT: It's the early 1960's and fifth-grader Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) has just moved into town with his folks (Karen Allen and Denis Leary). Kids call him a dork--he can't even throw a baseball! But that changes when the leader of their neighborhood gang recruits him to play on the nearby sandlot field. It's the beginning of a magical summer of baseball, wild adventures, first kisses, and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded beast and its owner (James Earl Jones) who lives behind the left field fence. Soon nine boys have become best friends, Scotty is part of a team, and their leader has become a local legend in this hilarious and warmhearted comedy.

THE SANDLOT 2: Ten years ago, a quirky group of kids invaded the Sandlot, in one of the most beloved baseball movies of all-time. Now, a new generation of kids are back in THE SANDLOT 2, a nostalgic return to the dog days of summer playing America's pastime where dreams begin and heroes are formed in this heart-felt and fun movie for everyone.

Editors Note
Note A double bill of classic coming-of-age baseball stories is presented here, including:^THE SANDLOT: It's 1962, and young Scotty Smalls has just moved to town with his mom, his stepfather, and his desire to make friends in his new home. But when he heads to the local sandlot he's laughed off the field in his awkwardness until the leader of the gang, Benny Rodriguez, takes him under his wing. Soon the boys become the best of friends, and "Smalls," as he is dubbed, is introduced to a cast of funny and unique characters; their summer adventures include treehouse sleepovers, encounters with a beautiful lifeguard, and of course, baseball. But when Smalls hits his first home run it is a Pyrrhic victory, as his stepfather's ball, autographed by Babe Ruth, lands in the adjoining lot which is guarded by "The Beast," a dog rumored to have once eaten a kid. The kids have some hilarious adventures and unexpected results in their efforts to regain the ball before Smalls' stepfather finds out it's missing, making this a film the whole family will enjoy.^THE SANDLOT 2: The gang returns in this sequel to the original SANDLOT classic. A decade has passed, and 1972 sees a new generation of young baseball enthusiasts gathering. Saul Samuelson (Cole Evan Weiss, WALKING ACROSS EGYPT) and five of his friends have reluctantly agreed to let three girls join their team, as their secret weapons against their unbeatable rivals. Saul is a witty, smart kid who translates for his hearing-impaired little brother, Sammy "Fingers" Samuelson, who keeps up a constant running commentary via sign language. Things are going well for the team, until the model spaceship belonging to one of the girl's father's accidentally ends up on the other side of the fence. And who should be keeping residence over there but the intimidating Mr. Mertle (James Earl Jones, THE ANNIHILATION OF FISH) and his dog, "the beast." Once again the kids have to devise a method for regaining their lost property before their parents find out, and avoid the child-eating canine in the meantime.

Review [1] Kids and adults will enjoy The Sandlot, but for different reasons. Children will find in it an adventure with a sense of humor that they can relate to. Meanwhile, adults will uncover a sense of almost-poignant nostalgia.

Review [1]This is a movie...that allows kids to be kids, that shows them in the insular world of imagination and dreaming that children create entirely apart from adult domains and values....this movie seduced me with its memories of what really matters when you are 12.

Review [2] As a big fan of the original Sandlot, I approached the sequel with equal parts skepticism and optimism. I was prepared to be a bit "kind" if Part 2 was a disappointment, but I was also challenging David Evans to give me a strong reason to recommend The Sandlot 2. And since I just hate it when a late-coming sequel pops up and mercilessly feeds off the popularity of its predecessor, I'm rather happy to say that I quite enjoyed The Sandlot 2. I think that most of the Sandlot fans out there will end up agreeing with me; the sequel, while not exactly in the same class as the original, is certainly funny, charming, and sincere enough to earn a solid B+ from the Sandlot-faithful.
