Summary: Grizzled former professional baseball player Morris Buttermaker (Thornton) is recruited by a strait-laced lawyer (Harden) to coach the Bears, a woefully inept Little League team. He's got to find a way to drive this gang of 12 misfits to a championship against their hated rivals: the Yankees and their overbearing coach (Kinnear). From the director that brought you "School of Rock" working with the writing team behind "Bad Santa" comes a hilarious 2005 homage to an irreverent 1976 comedy: "Bad News Bears." (Paramount Pictures)
