Bad News Bears :- Watch Bad News Bears on Youtube on Fire, A grizzled little league coach tries to turn his team of misfits into champs.Morris Buttermaker, an alcoholic pest removal worker and former professional baseball player (for a very short time), is recruited to coach and train a failing baseball team of 12-year-olds which is about to be thrown out of the league.Some of you may be wondering what exactly the “Bad News” in “Bad News Bears” really means. Well it is supposed to mean bad news for the other teams in their baseball league, as it did in the original movie. Howevair, with this movie it means bad news for the viewers. All kidding aside, it really eats monster butt. Sure, there are a few good one liners (3 maximum), but not nearly enough to hold the movie together or make it enjoyable for that matter. Oh, and if you are a fan of the art of acting at all, it’s a good move to side-step this one. The child acting is HORRENDOUS on all accounts, nearly making it unwatchable. But definitely making it un-rewatchable. Then there are the lame updates in the script only topped in horribility by the complete changes to it.So…based on that theory, Billy Bob Thornton’s rationale for the remake of “The Bad News Bears” was that the original had too many letters in the title (in a bold and highly daring move reminiscent of Ed Wood at his finest, Thornton decided to drop “The”, changing it simply to “Bad News Bears”), not enough swearing…and a kid in a wheelchair. Oh, and he changes enemy Yankee pitcher’s last name from “Turner” to “Bullok” for reasons unbeknownst to anyone but himself. With revolutionary alterations such as these, don’t be surprised if you pick up the rental box half a dozen times while watching the movie to make absolutely sure that you have indeed rented the correct film.
