The beloved hit movie that inspired two sequels, a television series, and a remake stars Walter Matthau at his absolute best — the grumbling beer-guzzling former minor-league pitcher who gets roped into coaching a band of half-pint misfits. Even with this rag-tag team in uniform, it’s nearly impossible for anyone to cheer them on. It’s a refreshingly outrageous, utterly believable, and quite cleverly funny tale of baseball dreams and underdog realities. The following film contains scenes, language and stereotypes that are objectionable and offensive. We are presenting the film as it was produced but stand against bigotry and hatred of all kinds.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The Bad News Bears is rude, profane, and cynical, but shot through with honest, unforced humor, and held together by a deft, understated performance from Walter Matthau.
Edgy '70s baseball comedy has lots of cursing, drinking.
