I really can NOT stand Bernie Mac. He really annoys me. I liked the movie concept, but it just wasn't done right.

"Bernie Mac is perfectly cast in Mr. 3000" thats like saying Paris Hilton was perfectly cast in 'the simple life'

Interesting premise leads to a disappointingly typical sports comedy.
