The Benchwarmers (12A)

The Benchwarmers is produced by Adam Sandler and it stars Rob Schneider and David Spade, so you'd assume, correctly, that it would be atrocious. But no one could have known that it would be atrocious in quite such a bizarre way. Schneider, Spade (below) and Jon Heder play three adult friends who compete in a children's baseball tournament, with the help of their billionaire sponsor. Somehow, the film fits in vomit sequences, an ovulation storyline, a sentient robot, insane amounts of product placement, and a sugary message about the evils of bullying.
