Bad News Bears was released in 1976 and makes fun of the relationship between the coaches. the players and the parents. Walter Matthau stands out in an all star performance as a beer drinking coach named his last name Buttlermaker. The kids are what make or break any film with this many kids in the film. Here they are outstanding in their roles. Tatum O'Neal play the Bad News Bears Pitcher and she comes off a winner. Victor Morrow plays the opposing win at any cost opposing coach convincingly. For family fun, sit down with the Bad News Bears. They are a delightful group and they learn several great lessons in life along the way!

I generally don't like sports movies and especially don't like the inspiring lovable losers make good subplot, but this was surprisingly funny. It helps that Matthau plays a misanthropic, cigar chomping drunk and that the kids have foul mouths. This is not really a kids movie, by the way. And it avoids a totally cheesy ending, which is not small feat. Look for a young Jackie Earle Haley as one of the players. Michael Ritchie would also direct "Fletch," "The Candidate" and "Downhill Racer."

After all the hype this film has received over the years, it didn't meet my expectations. Maybe I should have watched it in 1976. Solid acting. Plot has some holes in it.

This is a fun film, nice message.

It's actually very good, I just don't have the energy to describe it at the moment.

Worth watching.

Veepea--Because real life is like that sometimes. Sorry if you'd rather have a nice, sweet, hunky-dory fake-type character. This is a guy who cares, but he's kind of crusty; still, he has the fortitude to push the kids into becoming a real team & even finds 2 great ringers.

I don't see what the fuss is about this film, he's grumpy and doesn't like kids and is mean- how is that a great story?
