Unfunny sequel has crass innuendo, stereotypes, language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Benchwarmers 2: Breaking Balls is a 2019 comedy in which a former baseball player tries to lead a ragtag group of misfit coworkers to victory on the softball field. This sequel is only distantly related to the 2006 original; the only returning character is played by Jon Lovitz. Expect crass humor, often rooted in sexual innuendo. The stereotypically gay player on the team makes and reacts to anything that might be construed as double entendre. The "sexy female" player makes a series of baseball-themed double entendre, and punches a teammate in the face when she mishears him say the word "bunt." Humor is mined out of the lead character's promising baseball career being cut short when a fastball hits him in the testicles. A sportscaster refers to a rival team as the "Platap-ssies." Besides the constant innuendo, there's also occasional profanity: "pr--k," "ass," "nuts," "nards," "crap," "hell," "douchebag." Some drinking, including the stereotypical Canadian player who's drinking and drunk on beer in almost every scene. Drug reference. Running joke concerning the suicide of the previous manager of the softball team.
