The Sandlot is a charming piece of nostalgic Americana, and because it's told by the adult version of one of the kids who, over the course of the film, spends a summer in the early 60s playing baseball and retrieving a ball from the monstrous dog behind the fence, the cornball elements are sold completely. Of course it's an idealized childhood with a fantastical creature and crazy contraptions! It's how the story is told, embellishments and all. And I quite like films that pull a Munchausen without overtly saying so. The Sandlot is a film for the whole family without being only for kids, and it's filled with memorable scenes, characters and dialog. Entirely pleasant.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
