You’re Killing Me, Smalls With These 10 ‘The Sandlot’ Facts

The young cast of The Sandlot had a lot of great on-screen adventures while filming the classic 90s baseball comedy. As it turns out, they had some fun off-screen as well. One night after filming had wrapped, Smalls, Benny, Squints and the gang headed out to a nearby movie theater in Utah where they were shooting and snuck into a screening of Basic Instinct to see the notorious Sharon Stone leg cross on the big screen. This is just one of the facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!

In the film, Michael “Squints” Palledorous steals a kiss from lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn at the pool. Chauncey Leopardi, the kid who was playing Squints, was so excited to shoot this scene he asked the director every single day if it was time to film the kiss. When the day finally arrived, Leopardi got maybe a little too excited. The director had to stop and tell the young actor to keep his tongue in his mouth.
