The Sandlot (1993)

Double Impact show

Summary: 076 - This one is a bit of a nostalgia bomb; a 90's movie set in the 60s? That's double dose of nostalgia - and this movie doesn't hold back - it's 1993's The Sandlot. We have been wanting to rewatch this one, and here we are. This is actually one of the smallest movies we have ever covered if you look at box office, but if you look at cultural significance, this thing was HUGE! Even all the way down here in Australia (where it was called The Sandlot Kids). For a lot of us, it's how we heard about s'mores, chewing tobacco and Wendy Peffercorn - and our induction to Baseball Americana. But how does it hold up today? Join us as we investigate.
