No less than four times does Hooper roll his wheelchair to the left to exit the dugout. Given that there are steps this would make his exit a little tricky. However, on the third base end of the dugout in the championship game it is clear that Hooper rolls down a ramp. See more »
Man, you must have a big one because I don't know what else my mom saw in you.
You're not supposed to be talking about my... my one. You're 12 years old. As far as you know, I'm like G.I. Joe down there, okay?

Some of you may be wondering what exactly the "Bad News" in "Bad News Bears" really means. Well it is supposed to mean bad news for the other teams in their baseball league, as it did in the original movie. Howevair, with this movie it means bad news for the viewers.
All kidding aside, it really eats monster butt. Sure, there are a few good one liners (3 maximum), but not nearly enough to hold the movie together or make it enjoyable for that matter. Oh, and if you are a fan of the art of acting at all, it's a good move to side-step this one. The child acting is HORRENDOUS on all accounts, nearly making it unwatchable. But definitely making it un-rewatchable. Then there are the lame updates in the script only topped in horribility by the complete changes to it.
Fans of the original don't taint your memories with this god awful movie.
