The news for a team of little league baseball players is bad, when a boozing, former major leaguer (Billy Bob Thornton) is hired to be their coach. A remake of the 1976 hit movie, the object of the game is still to have the alcoholic adult turn the dysfunctional players into a functional team.

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Bad News Bears.

Many sports films have followed in the path of the original Bad News Bears. One of the most recent, Rebound, features Martin Lawrence who coaches a junior high school basketball team to improve his damaged reputation. Another popular franchise of a similar vein—only on ice—sprung from Disney’s The Mighty Ducks.

One of the best movies illustrating the danger of adults vicariously living out their competitive dreams through their children, is Searching for Bobby Fisher.
