The latest from producer Adam Sandler features Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Jon Heder as grown-up dweebs who come to bat for geeky kids terrorized by neighborhood bullies. ''We form this tournament and play baseball against all the other Little League teams for revenge — not just for us, but for nerds all over the world,'' says Heder. ''Of course, we're still horrible baseball players.'' For the Napoleon Dynamite star, the shoot was like a field of dreams. ''I grew up watching Saturday Night Live, so to work with these two was just so surreal,'' he says. ''It's like, Okay, am I really here? And do I belong here?'' (April 7)
