The Benchwarmers [***]

I just returned from the sneak peek premiere of “The Benchwarmers” with Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Jon Heder. I went in with trepidation because the trailers made it look like another fart joke and kicking balls comedy. Although there is always a time and place for these type of movies, I generally avoid them.

The story focuses on a trio of guys that try and make up for missed opportunities in childhood by forming a three-player baseball team to compete against standard little league squads.

It is a heartwarming and honestly funny story about dealing with bullies and being bullied and how sportsmanship can change young minds. I dont know about you but I have had my run-ins with bullies and poor sports.

I was pleasantly surprised. I actually liked it; I give it 3 out of 5 Revolutionary Stars. *** (Thats a strong renter if you miss it in the theaters.) There are also quite a few quotes that will become part of the common lexicon soon! It may also become a cult hit.

Joey and I podcast about the movie on Tuesday night. So, we said a couple of words in promotion before the movie and had the massive swag distribution that makes going to a RavenLoches sneak peek famous!

RavenLoches Entertainment was a sponsor of the sneak peek (along with 102 Jamz, Real Radio 104.1, and Brighthouse) and we a good time. Thanks for coming out!!
