Enjoy the old and the new with the 1976 and 2005 versions of BAD NEWS BEARS.
BAD NEWS BEARS (1976): A major surprise as one of 1976's top grossing films. The Bad New Bears is a movie about children that is refreshing, utterly believable, and quite cleverly funny. Walter Matthau is at his absolute best as the grumbling beer-guzzling former minor-league pitcher who gets roped into coaching a band of half-pint misfits somewhat loosely called a team. With this bunch in uniform, it's impossible to get caught up in the suburban competitive spirit that drives other adults to extremes of parental discipline. So, instead, the Bears have a good time.
BAD NEWS BEARS (2005): A fresh take on the irreverent 1976 comedy hit, The Bad News Bears follows a grizzled former minor league baseball player who is recruited to coach a woefully inept Little League team to a championship against their hated rivals, the Yankees.
