The Bad News Bears

Michael Ritchie Estados Unidos, 1976

Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Los picarones

I love it that the best sports movies are either about kid's teams (this one) or misfits ("Slap Shot"). "The Bad News Bears" is a terrific entertainment featuring a superlative Walter Matthau and lots of great children. I miss Michael Ritchie, the director. This is a companion piece to "Smile," his film about beauty contests.
