MAJOR LEAGUE
1989, Paramount, 107 min, USA, Dir: David S. Ward

Ex-showgirl Rachel Phelps inherits the Cleveland Indians from her late husband and immediately decides that she wants to get rid of the franchise so she can move to Miami. Her plan: to assemble a team so horrible no one will want to watch them play. The plan backfires, however, when fans embrace the motley crew and the players - who include Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes and Tom Berenger - perform above expectations. This raucous sports comedy from writer-director David S. Ward boasts a stellar supporting cast that features Rene Russo, Corbin Bernsen, and a pre-24 Dennis Haysbert.
