Relentlessly stupid comedy with more than its share of gross-out moments. Gus (Schneider) was a bullied nerd in school, as were his two still-maladjusted pals, Richie (Spade) and Clark (Heder). Ex-bullied nerd-turned-billionaire Mel (a fun-loving Lovitz) offers a chance for sweet revenge by putting his trio of losers up against a Little League team of young terrors. Farting, vomiting, and booger jokes follow, and Reggie Jackson offers baseball advice.

This is a funny movie. Gus, Richie and Clark have always been the outcast and bullied since they were young children. They are grown up now and still finding themselves being bullied. It’s time they get revenge and stand up for themselves. Mel, a billionaire who used to be bullied when he was a child, talks the three guys into joining a minor league baseball team to show some bullies who’s boss. The hardest task is to beat one of the meanest, yet best teams in the league.
