Get off the bench and get into the game.
A trio of guys try and make up for missed opportunities in childhood by forming a three-player baseball team to compete against standard little league squads.
For a comedy, The Benchwarmers just does not produce the laughs. I could count how many times I merely smiled, as a result of this silly comedy, on one hand. It really is not a movie that is a torture to get through, but it is one that tests your patience. If you do make it to the credits reward yourself because it is not an easy feat. The film obviously has a target audience; thankfully I am not a part of this group.
Yet another film I'm rating higher than it's probably worth because I watched it as an immature teen. In all seriousness, though, it's not that bad.
"The Benchwarmers" is about 3 older guys named Gus (Rob Schnieder), Richie (David Spade) and Clark (Jon Heder) who start a baseball league against the bullies in the neighborhood.
After a huge crowd comes out to support the team, the guys decide to enter a competition with the bullies. The winner will get a brand new stadium. Lots of immature laughs ensue
After walking out of "The Benchwarmers" I realized one thing. That this movie is exactly like the trailer and television spots made it out to be. This means that if you didn't find the trailer funny or amusing avoid this film because the odds are you won't like it. I, however, did enjoy the film. It's not a…
I keep saying I should stop watching these shitty comedies I know are going to suck, then I keep watching them. Guess what!? This movie sucks too.
Really love this movie and the concept they have going! Let the under dogs, the benchwarmers, the ones who got spat at, play the game.. and WIN! Very entriguing especially for kids! Kid approved!

3 adults play baseball against a bunch of kids so they'll stop picking on the nerds. Rob Schneider will accept any movie offered apparently.
The Benchwarmers had some minor laughs here and there, but as a memorable comedy it fails to stand out, and doesn't withstand multiple viewings. The comedy factor falls apart after awhile, and you realize how sloppily written this comedy is. The jokes are sometimes comical; however most of them fall flat. After awhile you realize that this comedy isn't what it's supposed to be, and that's a good comedy. Everything about this film is forgettable to say the least. I did laugh, but The Benchwarmers is a mediocre comedy with washed up comedians that are very, very hit and miss. Go into The Benchwarmers with an open mind, just so you won't be disappointed. I did, and though I laughed,…
It´s amazing that a cast with Lovitz, Spade and Schneider, didn´t even make me smile three times.
The biggest problem is that the humor of the film is to bad and easy. Although it has some surrealistic ingredients, as continued mocking nerds, which in theory are good ones, and all that surrounds the character of Gus Bus.
If I was still nine years old, this would be the coolest movies going. It still makes me laugh some parts you can tell are for 12 year holds though.
This was way better than I expected.. its worth a rental
