A conceited baseball player (Bernie Mac) who thinks he has gotten 3,000 base hits in his career, retires and awaits his inevitable induction into the Hall of Fame. However, after waiting for almost a decade, he finds out that 3 hits have been disqualified. So, he goes back to his team and tries to pick up the additional hits, not realizing how the game has changed since his professional days. Also with Angela Bassett, Evan Jones, Amaury Nolasco and Christopher Noth. Directed by Charles Stone III. [1:44]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman dance together, he holds her around the waist from behind and we focus on their hips as they move; they also kiss, and the woman unbuttons the man's shirt and kisses his chest. A man and a woman flirt, and we then see the couple lying in bed together, covered with a sheet (the man is bare-chested), presumably after having had sex; the woman gets out of bed and begins dressing (we see her in a bra and panties). A man and a woman kiss. A woman lies in bed in provocative under garments and a man admires her (it is a TV commercial for Viagra). A man flirts with a woman and she rebuffs him, and a man flirts with another woman and boasts about his sexual prowess. There are several references to Viagra and impotency. A man asks a man to marry him, as a joke. We see several women working out on stationary bikes, they stand and sit and the camera lingers on their buttocks, which are covered in lycra suits. We see part of a man's bare buttocks when the sheet wrapped around him sags in the back. We see a bare-chested man in a locker room with a towel draped around his hips (we see part of his buttock cleavage when he turns around). A woman wears a low-cut, short dress that reveals cleavage and bare thighs. Women wear low-cut tops in many scenes that reveal cleavage. We see several bare-chested men in the stands of a stadium.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man bats a ball into the pitcher's crotch (the pitcher falls to the ground writhing). A woman slaps a man in the face. A man threatens a baseball team mascot a few times. A man yells at a man who yells back at him (they are an umpire and a coach during a baseball game). A man and a woman argue in several scenes. A man pitches a ball and nearly hits a batter (he falls to the ground). A little boy picks his nose. A man threatens a boy over a ball.
