Click here to read today’s movie suggestion and it is … the remake of a wonderful 1970s youth baseball flick called “The Bad News Bears.” Of course today, it’s been slightly renamed by dropping the “the” and the remake is just “Bad News Bears” from 2005. Actually, despite this minor criticism, “Bad News Bears” isn’t a bad update of the original. Of course it could never match the original as a motion picture of depth, but it doesn’t do it badly. “Bad News Bears” stars Billy Bob Thornton as the manager of a bunch of misfits and the film manages to update creatively. I especially like the small role played by the tremendously talented Marcia Gay Harden. Watch “Bad News Bears.” You’ll like it.
So, I’m doing a daily recommendation of a movie … and they’re all movies that I’ve reviewed on this blog. Below is the link back to the original review.
