Mr. 3000





Bernie Mac plays a vain and jaded Stan Ross, known as “Mr. 3000.” As soon as he got the 3000th hit that he thought would ensure him a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame, he announced his retirement from the Milwaukee Brewers. He got his and that was all he cared about. He opened up a strip mall with a pet sore (3000 paws), a cell phone store (3000 beeps), a Chinese restaurant (3000 Woks), a hair salon (3000 cuts) and a bar with a wall of 3000 baseballs.

But then the hotshot statisticians in Cooperstown found out that one of Stan’sgames was counted twice. He’s not Mr. 3000. He’s Mr. 2997. So, he has a month to get back into shape and suit up, to try to get those last three hits in the final month of the season. And who should show up to report on the story for ESPN but Stan’s on-and-off love, Mo (Angela Bassett). Stan has to learn that he needs more than a swing and more of a hit to win.

Charles Stone III, the director of Drumline, doesn’t exactly provide us with the same marvel, the same flair in Mr. 3000. But, Bernie Mac doesn’t disappoint us with his humor. In fact, he actually shows us some of his tender side; as does Angela Bassett. We find ourselves wanting their relationship to work.

Even though this is a PG-13 movie, the language is strong for this rating. There are some words that you just wouldn’t expect in a PG-13 movie. Plus, there are some jokes about how Japanese ballplayers are unable to curse properly, some explicit sexual situations and references. There are references to an alcohol abuse problem and many of the scenes are in a bar. But on a positive note, the movie does portray African-American and female characters who are intelligent and capable.
