THE BENCHWARMERS (2006) GO!, 9.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Adam San­dler pro­duced this in­nocu­ous base­ball com­edy, which show­cases the goofy an­tics of Rob Sch­nei­der, David Spade and Jon Heder. The trio play bud­dies who have never quite re­cov­ered from the fact they were re­lent­lessly bul­lied as kids. They hap­pen upon a bil­lion­aire (Jon Lovitz), who of­fers to spon­sor a base­ball tour­na­ment for which the guys will help form a lit­tle league team, to ex­pe­ri­ence the grandeur of sport­ing tri­umph. There are cheap laughs on of­fer, but don’t dream of find­ing any­thing re­sem­bling in­tel­li­gence or wit, with geeky Spade wring­ing the most laughs out of his wafer-thin script. ★★
