My favorite sports film of all time, about damn time for a SE!

I would have picked the "Up your butt, Jobu" tagline instead though

Yeah see I had seen the 70's sportss movies and by the time the 80's rolled in and MAJOR LEAGUE came out I saw it as a rip-off with it's bunch of losers that wins story. It's storyline was done 3 times in the 70's.

Forget about the cliched stoyline and just enjoy the comedy that takes place within it.

I for one am glad I held off on buyin the current release. As a young teen, me and my friends had a summer tradition that we had to watch this before going out and playing baseball.

I would have gone with "The Juuust a bit outside" Edition

How about the "Look at this Fuckin' Guy" edition?

As a native Clevelander, I'm overjoyed about this, though the older disc is probably the most played in my collection.

It's by far the funniest of the four you mentioned, and probably the funniest sports movie of all time.

I hope there's some special features attached to this one. I'd love to see the funniest line from the trailer "Yellowstone", get put back in.
Agreed. A great movie, looking forward to more features on this definite double dip.

As long as the features are half-way decent, I'm in.

Great news. But why couldn't they have made it a box set with all three? I know the 3rd is, for the most part, completely different from the first two, but I enjoyed Major League and Major League 2 equally would rather have seen a box set with all three and extras for each movie.

Different studios (part 2 is from WB).

There's a ton of shit out there for this movie...
I believe they re-used that line in the inferior and downright horrible sequel to the movie.
I would have went "They're still shitty" edition

gotcha.

I thought the sequal was just as good if not better. I had seen the 2nd one before the first, and that may be why, but I enjoyed both.

I'd prefer the "F-ck you, Jobu! I do it myself!" Edition.

No word on what's actually on this?

Summer School is due in May, and they have the extras listed already.
