review for Mr. Baseball on AllMovie

Mr. Baseball (1992)
by Matthew Tobey review

Tom Selleck stars in this silly sports comedy that relies way too much on the suggestion that Japanese people are ridiculously different from Americans and therefore hilarious; Mr. Baseball is nothing more than an extremely formulaic story about an underdog who teams up with a ragtag bunch in a last-ditch effort to find success in his life. Only four years prior to directing this film, filmmaker Fred Schepisi helmed the critically acclaimed A Cry in the Dark, a fact that might prompt one to wish that a dingo would eat this movie.
