Directed by
Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater's re-make of the 1976 sports comedy stars Billy Bob Thornton as Morris Buttermaker, a bibulous, cheating ex-baseball player hired to coach the Bad News Bears, a team of no-hopers and misfits. But despite his unorthodox methods, Buttermaker's a good coach and gets his team to the championship game, where they face the Yankees, coached by unctuous parent Roy Bullock (Greg Kinnear).

Thornton's character is not dissimilar to Willie in Bad Santa (although without the sex) and the script from Bill Lancaster, who wrote the original, and Glenn Ficarra, who co-wrote Bad Santa, offers an enjoyable mix of innocence and imprecations in this feel-good sports comedy.
