YMMV: The Sandlot

  • Awesome Music: Green Onions which plays when the sandlot boys have their confrontation with the Little Leaguers.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Forcibly, nonconsensually kissing a girl is an important rite of passage. note 
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Nausea Fuel: The fair scene, in all its glory.
  • One-Scene Wonder: James Earl Jones as Mr. Mertle, the owner of the junkyard and Hercules aka "The Beast".
  • Recycled Script: The second movie's plot is almost exactly the same as the first, with the exception of a few plot details.
  • Signature Scene: The standoff between the Sandlot kids and their rival team.
    Ham: You play ball like a girl!
    • The chase scene with Benny and the Beast.
    Benny: Sandlot! Sandlot! Sandlot!
    • The how you build some s'mores scene.
    Ham: You're killing me Smalls!
  • Special Effect Failure: The cutaway shots of fireworks during the Fourth of July game are stretched horizontally (the fireworks appear oblong), meaning non-anamorphic stock footage was spliced into the film.
