Tom Selleck stars in this hilarious comedy about a veteran major leaguer who attempts to revive his fading career by signing to play in Japan. Aging superstar Jack Elliot (Selleck) just isn't hitting them like he used to. In fact, the only pro ball club willing to sign him is the Chunichi Dragons… in Nagoya, Japan. Cultures clash immediately when Jack hits town and proceeds to alienate everyone with his arrogance. But through the friendship of teammate Max "Hammer" Dubois (Dennis Haysbert, Far From Heaven) and the love of the team's beautiful translator, Jack finds a way to fit in and win in this heartwarming, action-packed comedy from director Fred Schepisi.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mr. Baseball is a 1992 movie in which Tom Selleck plays a Major League Baseball player who gets traded from the Yankees to a Japanese professional team. Expect some sexual jokes and some sexual situations, including Selleck's character waking up in bed next to a much younger woman (both are hungover) that's soon revealed to be what looks like a college dorm room. Talk of how lead character had slept with "two broads." Joke referencing "mustache rides." On a Tokyo commuter train, man shown looking at pornographic images in a manga. Kissing in a bathtub between lead character and love interest. Masturbation reference. Brief male nudity in showers (buttocks). Some profanity throughout includes "bulls--t," "horses--t," "p---y," "s--t," "piss," "d--ks," "crap," "wiseass," "jackass," and "hell." Cigar and cigarette smoking, tobacco chewing. The lead character splits a bottle of scotch with his manager and the two get extremely drunk. Drinking and drunkenness in a karaoke bar. Booze, wine, and beer drinking. While there's some attempt on the part of the lead character to accept and assimilate into his new culture, there are also some stereotypes.
