This sequel to the movie The Sandlot takes place 12 years after the first. Featuring more baseball, boys and scary dogs -- this second effort from Writer/DIrector David Mickey Evans feels more like a remake than a new tale.

Although many film sequels are made, few live up to the movies that inspired them. Some exceptions to this rule are Toy Story II and Shrek II.  Be sure to look for the original The Sandlot (1993), and The Great Escape (1963) - the movie that gave the kids the idea of building a tunnel.
