Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A singularly unfunny, dramatically tepid follow-up to 1989's $ 50 million theatrical success."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"I expect a certain number of contrivances in a baseball movie, especially one that's not meant to be taken seriously, but nothing prepared me for the sheer avalanche of formulas and cliches that fill the screen in Major League II."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Inexplicably outshines the original."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"You've got to know something is terribly wrong when Bob Uecker's performance is amongst a movie's few high points."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"There has rarely been such a steep and strange decline between a movie and its sequel as the one between the fast, silly original and the dismal, boring Major League II."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"They don't come any fouler than Major League II."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"A real foul ball; another in a plethora of unnecessary sequels."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"This sequel is virtually plotless, episodic and meandering and overloaded with disparate characters."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"The humor is so predictable, forced and awkward that the actors sometimes seem like helpless bystanders."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Generally feels like a case of needless extra innings."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Copies the first one, but forgets the charm and good humor."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
