One of 1976's top grossing films was a surprise. The Bad News Bears is a funny and refreshing movie about children. Walter Matthau is at his best as the beer-guzzling former minor-league pitcher who is hired to coach a band of half-pint misfits. It's impossible to get caught up in the suburban competitive spirit that drives other adults to extremes of parental discipline with this bunch in uniform. The Bears have a good time.
