Nice tip of the hat to the first Sandlot, but not on the sam

"I was such a huge fan of the first Sandlot movie, that I've picked up both the second one, and now this 3rd movie. While the 2nd movie made just vague references to the events of the first movie, this one seems much more linked to the original, even going as far as having two characters from the first movie (Benny and Squints) appear. Squints is even played by the same actor, all grown up now and he looks just the same. The two of them reminisce about old times and even mention the Great Hambino, now a pro wrestler. The movie itself was standard fare for this type. Decent story, decent acting by the new kids, nothing really special. Worth watching if you love sports/kids movies like this, but you won't miss anything if you skip it."
Sandlot 3 - A Grand Slam!

"If you enjoyed the Sandlot and Sandlot 2, you're sure to like Sandlot 3 - Heading Home. The original Sandlot was definitely a tough act to follow, and unless you were alive and kicking in the 1970's, younger viewers might not understand all the political references in Sandlot 2. The Sandlot 3 comes full circle and is a wonderful family movie. The characters are real and the story line is heartwarming. Get out the popcorn, gather your family together and get ready to enjoy The Sandlot 3 - Heading Home."
A worthy sequel

"With Sandlot 2 being more of a remake than sequel to the first fun filled romp about chasing your dreams and growing up, the Sandlot 3 Heading Home is a refreshing new take on the idea. A major leaguer is caught in the commercialism and material trappings associated with the wealth of ball players and needs to get back to basics: the love of the game. hit on the head with a ricocheted ball off a sign while fireworks are going off, Santorelli is transported backward in time and is back home on the sandlot with the boys he called friends and a team when he was 12 back in 1976. the bond they share helps Santorelli right a lot of wrongs in his life and ultimately changes his fate in positive ways. Benny the Jet Rodriguez is back as the then major leaguer that never lost sight of his roots and Squints is back as well, adding more original cast appeal as a supporting player in a cast filled with leading kids who are on a much higher acting level than the kids of the second movie. The Sandlot 3 Heading Home is a great new take on the ideals of the franchise and is indicative of the kind of good values movies we should be encouraging all of our kids to see. There is something for everyone to love in the film, whether you're 8 or 80, but the film's most obvious audience member targets are those who were close in age to the kids in the movie back in '76 as I was. With every bit of heart as high as the original, Sandlot Heading Home should be added to your must see list. 5 stars"
Nice family movie

"our family prefers sandlot, heading home over the first two movies in this sereis. I think the first Sandlot movie has a lot of mouthy talking in it, this one is a little more modern and family friendly. But It is helpful to have seen the first movie so you understand why there is this old abandoned house behind the sand lot and what the kids are talking about when they refer to the monsterous dog that used to live at the house.
It is a fun baseball movie for any baseball fan, my son is 6 and really enjoyed the movies.
