Not as bad as I expected,certainly better than most of the films out there today that appeal to the kid-sports-movie crowd. Ditka added to the enjoyment.

Bad New Bears with a soccer ball, POOR EFFORT. I did like Mike Ditka playing himself, a few laughs there.

There's a bizarre inside joke to "Kicking & Screaming" and god only knows why it's there. This film, a sort of second generation, second-rate "The Bad News Bears", announces itself as such by using the same team nickname as "Here There's a bizarre inside joke to "Kicking & Screaming" and god only knows why it's there. This film, a sort of second generation, second-rate "The Bad News Bears", announces itself as such by using the same team nickname as "Here Comes the Tigers", a long-forgotten film about an incompetent little league baseball team that was directed by Sean S. Cunningham, the man who gave us Jason. His next film, "Manny's Orphans", was about youth soccer. Then it occured to me that "Kicking and Screaming" premiered on Friday the 13th. Putting this information together was a lot more fun than watching this harmless, but largely unfunny comedy because the filmmakers are going for a PG-rating. "The Bad News Bears" wasn't made for children. Mike Ditka would've been more effective if he treated those kids like adults, like how he'd coach the Chicago Bears. The f-bomb is probably funnier than "Zip it!" "Kicking and Screaming" comes to life late in the film when Ferrell starts to behave a little badly. If the film tried to be more like "Bad Santa" than "Parenthood", they might've had something here. Even the great Robert Duvall could've reached deeper into his inner-Santini. Expand

A light, sometimes funny movie that is watchable but forgettable. The supporting cast don't take much of the comedic burden so Ferrell becomes the sole reason you would watch this film.
