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.
Silly, colorful, and almost entertaining enough to qualify as an at least above average comedy, Dennis Dugan's "The Benchwarmers" can not quite be taken seriously. It tries hard, though, and the film that pits Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Jon Heder against young and old baseball players in response to bullying has its share of charms. It just does not have enough.
Built around a three-man ball team that takes on full-sized little league teams, Dugan's comedy boasts the standard compliment of physical gags and verbal barbs expected from the Happy Madison team. The jokes are mostly silly, but a few ring smartly enough, elevating the entire affair. The cast is solid, and all of the film's awkward heroes offer…
Embarrassing comedy from producer Adam Sandler and written by Sandler acolytes Nick Swardson and Allen Covert. Terrible film gives "lowbrow" a bad name. No joke is too low or too cruel in this one. The guise is that it's all done with a good moral message. Who cares? A good game to play with this movie is "which character is the most grating?" Is it Jon Heder's nose picking paperboy who seems let's just say "special". Or is it David Spade's obnoxious video store clerk? Still there's Nick Swardson who's agoraphobia is the basis for many unfunny jokes. The film is really aggressively unfunny and tedious. This film is a career nadir for pretty much everyone involved.
The Benchwarmers does not deserve my time. That I would allow myself to be subjected to this "film" for 85 minutes is, perhaps, a sign of stupidity on my part. That I should be granting this "film" a service to which it certainly doesn't deserve - a full-length review - is a sign of my boundless generosity and merciful nature. I should be able to merely copy-and-paste my review for Nacho Libre (which debuted in theaters only a couple months after this "film") to get all my points across, and in theory, I could do just that. But there are couple reasons why I think writing a review is a warranted reaction:
1. The Benchwarmers is far too terrible to…
It's so unabashedly fucking stupid that it's actually kind of charming. I laughed through the whole thing. SUE ME.
I think my favorite joke is when Rob Schneider gets in the shower with his wife because he has to pee.
But my favorite detail is the robot butler shaking like Conky when he's making food.
It's funny because a whole bunch of men get hit in the balls with varying objects, and it hurts when men get hit in the balls, and that's why it's funny.

I remember liking this as a kid. I was a dumb kid.
Pro tip: when you're kissing someone don't turn away to your friend to specify that kissing someone is in fact better than macaroni.
Pro tip #2: don't watch this shit.
A cinematic triumph.
Like really awful.
But it's 💯.
"You just lost your membership to Video Spot!"
If your looking for an idiotic humour which is hilarious!
This is the film for you
With Rob Schneider starring
It is a very funny and good film to remember
Funny stupid humour which I enjoy
A dumb sports movie, but still entertaining.
"The Benchwarmers" is not how I remembered, but now that I don't have the humor of an 8 year old I see why.
