Lackluster sports comedy follows egotistical Milwaukee Brewers star Stan Ross (Mac), who abruptly quit the team as soon as he got his 3,000 hit. His comfy retirement of 10 years is interrupted when an old record-keeping error is corrected, revealing that Stan only has 2,997 career hits. So, the 47-year-old decides to come back long enough to get those missing hits. He must contend with resentful younger teammates, numerous strikeouts, the accomanying ridicule, and Mo, his beautiful former flame who's now a reporter for ESPN covering his comeback. Mac and Bassett have a lot of charm together but much of the film is predictable, and the on-field action lacks any urgency.

Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

The comedy Mr. 3000 hit theaters in 2004, starring Bernie Mac. Mr. 3000 has a runtime of 104 minutes and a rating of PG-13. Years ago star baseball player, Stan Ross (Mac), quit suddenly after reaching 3,000 hits. He built the rest of his career using his new nickname, Mr. 3,000. Along the road of reaching his 3,000 hits, someone made an error. He needed to make three more hits before he could reach 3,000. Now at age 47, Stan decides to get back into the game to accomplish his 3,000 hits. This time, he finds it a bit tougher to accomplish that goal
