Major League 1989 Movie Poster




The new owner of the Cleveland Indians puts together a purposely horrible team so they'll lose and she can move the team. But when the plot is uncovered, they start winning just to spite her.


Guilty Pleasure Qualities:


Charlie Sheen's moody character. Cheesy dialogue. Funny, slapstick moments. Dennis Haysbert and his character's voodoo tricks. Tom Berenger. “Wild Thing, you make my heart sing!” Entertaining sports comedy.


Guilty Pleasure Level:


Moderate (Revisited once every two years)
