The Benchwarmers ★ 2006 (PG-13)

Relentlessly stupid comedy with more than its share of gross-out moments. Gus (Schneider) was a bullied nerd in school, as were his two still-maladjusted pals, Richie (Spade) and Clark (Heder). Exbullied nerd-turned-billionaire Mel (a fun-loving Lovitz) offers a chance for sweet revenge by putting his trio of losers up against a Little League team of young terrors. Farting, vomiting, and booger jokes follow, and Reggie Jackson offers baseball advice. 81m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, UMD .
