Directed by Charles Stone III, Mr. 3000 revolves around over-the-hill baseball star Stan Ross (Bernie Mac), who retired after making what he thought was his 3,000th base hit for the Milwaukee Brewers (i.e. the exact amount of hits it takes to qualify for the Hall of Fame). Though he shocked his teammates by quitting in the middle of the game, certain that his Hall of Fame position was in the bag, complications arise when he discovers that three of his hits during his ten-year career had been disqualified. Known as Mr. 3000, the 47-year-old, out-of-shape ball player returns to the game intending to stay only as long as it takes to get the hits he needs, but something unexpected happens along the way -- he rediscovers his love for the game, and begins to serve as a mentor to one of the younger players. Mr. 3000 features Angela Bassett, Paul Sorvino, Michael Rispoli, and Evan Jones in supporting roles. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide

One of the better sports-themed movies I've seen in quite awhile, MR. 3000 gives film lovers a chance to learn what Bernie Mac is all about (and why he's so popular), allows Angela Bassett to act without her usual over-the-top "attitude" and give sports enthusiasts a salutary reminder why teamwork is more important than grandstanding (the last couple of decades has really driven home this latter point).

The movie takes a while to kick in, but once it does, you're hooked till a finale that brings everything together about as well as possible in a mainstream movie--which this one definitely is. If it didn't rake in the cash at theatres, video audiences seem to be lapping it up--for good reason. Michael Rispoli ("Two Family House") does a particularly fine job as the hero's pal, and Paul Sorvino gives a less-is-more performance that pays off nicely.
