1 As others (including myself) have already posted, Major League 2 had a multitude of problems. The thing that stuck out like a sore thumb, though, was Wesley Snipes' being replaced in the role of Willie Mays Hayes by Omar Epps. It wasn't that Epps was horrible -- he was actually pretty good -- but that he just didn't bring quite the same flair to the role that Snipes did. As far as I'm concerned, we had Hayes in the first movie and "fake Hayes" in the second. It wouldn't have made that much difference in the overall quality of the movie, but they would have been better off writing Hayes out of the movie and putting Epps in as a totally new character. In real life, of course, the reason Snipes didn't return for the second movie was because he'd gotten his acting career established on his own, and ML2 had an obvious reference to that by depicting Hayes as having starred in an action movie during the off-season. But since Snipes was gone, Hayes should have been gone as well. That wouldn't have turned ML2 into high art, as it had plenty of other problems, but at least it wouldn't have been **as much** of a fish-fest. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 14, 2013, 8:30 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 First movie is easily the best of the lot. Major League II tries too hard to be like the first one - it dragged for the most part, and Randy Quaid as a heckling fan became irritating very fast. There was no need for a third movie, all things considered. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on December 11, 2010, 10:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 First was epic, second was a bit out there, but had the right idea, but Back to the Minors?!? Ugh!!! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 19, 2010, 6:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This is yet another example of a movie that should never have become a series. When I first saw Major League II, I smelled trouble as soon as I noticed the absence of Wesley Snipes' name in the opening credits, and then smelled rotting fish when they unveiled the plotline of Charlie Sheen's "Wild Thing" character having gotten a clean-cut makeover during the off-season, under pressure by his publicist. ML2 tries really hard, and actually comes pretty close, but still can't quite measure up to the first movie. The ending is pretty good, but considering how much ML2 drags for most of the movie, it's hard to justify waiting for it. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 19, 2010, 2:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The first one was a good standalone film. It was not worthy of a sequel. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on November 13, 2009, 6:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
