Dir: Lloyd Kaufman
Lloyd Kaufman More so than not is known for the classic Toxic Avenger and his over the top splatstick flicks like Class of Nuke em' High and Sgt.Kabukiman NYPD But before he found his true niche he was a provider of spank material for the young kids out there who had the luxury of cable and channels like Cinemax. Kaufman was not the most original of directors at the time , making several Meatball's/Porky's rip off's like this fun little romp about Softball.
Squeeze Play centers around a local mattress companies male Softball team and the troubles the teams men face in their relationships due to focusing to much on the Beer League past time. We get Tit's right at the gate as we see Team captain Wes getting interrupted having sex with his fiance Samantha by a honk from his team mates alerting him it's game time. Followed by scenes of several of the other players leaving their ladies back at home to have fun with the boys. It's the Softball World Series as The "Heroes" the Beavers are facing their rivals the Animals and take home the win. As the season wraps up Sammy demands that Wes give up on the game and focus more on their family life as they will be wed soon, But she is pissed off when she finds that he is trying to hide the fact he has signed up for another season, This causes some serious troubles between the couple as she feels Wes needs to grow up. Meanwhile across town we meet Mary Lou , A young woman who just moved to town from Georgia who is apparently running from her father as a Private detective shows up at her job looking for her. Mary's creep of a manager denies he knows her and then tries to get paid to keep his mouth shut with some sexual favors. Mary obviously does not take to the idea and she quits. Mary manages to hitch a ride with a few ladies who happen to be the Beavers girlfriends and she is taken to a bar where the team is celebrating their big victory. At one point Mary and Sammy have a chance meeting in the ladies room, where Sammy notices Mary has one hell of a pitching arm when she throws her purse through a wall damn near.This gives Sammy and idea, She plans to get Mary a try out for the team in order to make the guys see that Softball is not just a man's sport in hopes that perhaps the ladies could get in on the fun as well at the same time taking away the one thing the guys love so much.
The warehouses janitor was a former Softball legend and he decides to take the girls under his wing as coach.
Then we of course get the wacky training montage of the girls in short short's and skimpy softball outfits running and jiggling about along with the standard silliness in tact.
