About the Movie

Caught in a clash of cultures and ready to wreak more havoc on Japan than Godzilla, the Bad News Bears are back for their third outing, following the enormously successful The Bad News Bears and The Bad News Bears In Breaking Training. This time the Bears have been spirited off to Tokyo by Tony Curtis as Marvin Lazar, a slick and sleazy con artist who sees in the team a perfect peg for a get-rich-quick scheme. The strikeout-prone Bears are pitted agaainst a murderously skillful Japenese junior baseball team, and the resulting comic chaos is hilarious.

What the duece?

Um...ok? If you want to watch a movie that is in the third generation of a failing series since the beginning, then this movie is for you. The first Bad News Bears is a great movie about growing up and learning important lessons along the way. The Bad News Bears Go To Japan is just trash. Trash I tell yee. Trash. For the love of God, man. Take this off iTunes, and never bring it back. Definately put on the first Bad News Bears, but don't ever let anyone view this horrific atrocity you call a movie, ever again. Holy God, mother marry of Nazareth...just...just...oh God. Forgive me for I have sinned, after watching this movie, that is.
