      I was flipping channels today and came across the original Bad News Bears on one of the movie channels. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie and I have to admit it is much better than I remember it.

      The interesting thing about Bad News Bears is, while it’s advertised as a comedy and most people remember it as a movie about an


      underdog doing good, there is a lot more to the movie.

      For one, it’s a movie about redemption.

      You have a coach who doesn’t really like kids but takes the job because he needs the money and, after a while, realizes winning isn’t everything; the idea of little league baseball is to give kids a chance to have fun.

      Most importantly, the movie really has ...


      • a dark message when it comes to organized youth sports.

        You have an opposing coach who hits his pitcher because he didn’t throw a pitch he wanted.

        You have parents and sponsors who get upset when there’s a championship on the line and the coach plays the worse players just to give them a chance to get on the field.

        And, you have a movie

        that shows the importance of standing up to people like that.

        If there was anything I didn’t like about this movie, it was probably the language and the scenes showing kids drinking beer.

        Without that stuff, this is a good family movie.

        With it, it’s really something you don’t want your kids watching.

        But, compared to the remake with Billy Bob Thornton, I think this movie is still much better.
