Storyline Heading
You only get one shot at greatness, and if that one chance slips through your fingers, it’s game over. Or is it? After years of retirement from pro sports, Stan Ross is about to discover that there are such things as second chances – in sports, in love, in life – but first, you’ve got to undo the mistakes that fouled you up the first time around.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - It's a story of an arrogant baseball player who finally learns to be a team player. You've seen this type of story many times before so it's pretty predictable. He's not likeable at first so the story isn't very likeable, but as he changes the story gets better.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Baseball heroes are not necessarily the nicest guys on earth, but do moviegoers want to know that? Two movies about flawed legends, Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth, bombed at the box office. Now here is 'Mr. 3000,' starring Bernie Mac as a player so disliked that even the team's mascot disses him. This time, however, the movie is a comedy, not a dirge, and Bernie Mac gives a funny and kind of touching performance as a man who attains greatness once and then has to do it again.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 118 moviegoer opinions. Not bad at all, but not great. You'll likely not be disappointed seeing "Mr. 3000," but about a third of you will only feel it's an average/OK movie, which still isn't too bad.

The problem is the relatively high percentage of "Good" opinions, which we've discovered are a little bit on the low side. Fortunately, there are virtually no opinions below "Good." This tells me that most people really enjoyed "Mr. 3000" and no one truly disliked it. It's easy to recommend "Mr. 3000," but not highly. In fact, you may want to help ensure that you get your money's worth by seeing a matinee.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Ten years ago, Stan Ross was a pro ballplayer blessed with one of the sweetest swings – and one of the worst attitudes – in the league. A man with big talent, a bigger mouth and an even bigger ego, he was clearly on his way to becoming a legend. The day he batted his 3,000th hit, assuring him of an eventual place in the Hall of Fame, Ross instantly quit the game, leaving his teammates in the lurch. Never looking back, Ross began his ‘Mr. 3000' shopping empire, fueling his self-satisfaction solely with that one magical number.

But now, just as Ross is about to be voted at last into the Hall of Fame, an error is discovered: the man who thought he was ‘Mr. 3000,' is actually . . . ‘Mr. 2,997.' Three hits shy of the landmark number, Ross has only one choice: get up off the couch, pick up his bat and rejoin the Milwaukee Brewers for the most unlikely comeback sports has ever seen.

Literally going back to first base, Ross has no idea what he's in for. Out of shape, over the hill and in deep denial, he quickly becomes a joke to the press, the bane of his teammates and a juicy story to Mo Simmons (Angela Bassett), the tough-minded reporter who once had a memorable fling with Ross back in the day.

But just as Ross thinks it's all about the numbers, he finally begins to see what really counts. Soon, the cocky, self-absorbed, ego machine is trying a different tactic: discovering the fun of teamwork, ethics and even falling in love...as he learns the difference between a successful life and a meaningful one.
