Crowd-pleasing baseball comedy about an aging, self-absorbed all-star (Bernie Mac) who comes out of retirement after nine years when an error discovered in the recordkeeping shows he is three base hits shy of 3,000, a career milestone without which he won't get into the Hall of Fame. Director Charles Stone III swings for the feel-good fences but comes up short of a home run; his movie's positive, but predictable, message about self-sacrifice, teamwork and second chances is weighed down by unnecessary crudeness. An implied sexual encounter, fleeting partial rear nudity and recurring coarse language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
