Bad News Bears (2005) Poster

Trivia

Despite the remake having a higher MPAA rating than the original (PG-13 verses PG), the ratings board would not allow the remake to feature Coach Morris Buttermaker drinking alcoholic beer in the dugout as he had in the original. Strangely enough the board was fine with him spiking his non-alcoholic beer with hard liquor.
When looking for a local business to sponsor the team, Buttermaker tries a business called "Chico's Bail Bonds" which sponsored the team in the original.
