Bad News Bears

Billy Bob Thorton stars in this new twist on the old "Bad New Bears" franchise. Thorton plays the role of the coach who is a "has been" major leaguer who works by day as the local exterminator, and moonlights as the drunk coach of the losing little league Bears. There are a lot of humorous one-liners, and the kids turn in a excellent and entertaining performance. In the end, the coach ends up learning the true meaning of the game. While I needed a 7th inning stretch at one point, I also laughed out loud at several points. The movie is definitely for a more adult crowd than the originals.

Overall Grade: B+
