Mr. 3000 [P&S] [DVD] [2004]

This edition of the underrated sports comedy Mr. 3000 arrives on DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical image. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. French and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a fine but less than scintillating commentary track by director Charles Stone III, deleted scenes with optional commentary by the director, outtakes, a making-of featurette, and the full versions of three scenes that appear in a truncated form in the final film. This is a fine release for what it is but a different version with the same extras and a widescreen version of the film is available. That edition is preferable.

Synopsis

Mr. 3000
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, Rovi
