Critic Reviews of "The Bad News Bears"TIME MagazineAugust 03, 2008
Surprisingly, improbably, The Bad News Bears is the year's funniest movie.Chicago ReaderMarch 14, 2007
Michael Ritchie keeps his dead-end cynicism in check and produces a genuinely funny comedy about a Little League team managed by a lovably drunken Walter Matthau.VarietyMarch 14, 2007
An extremely funny adult-child comedy film.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Amiably engrossing satire on the 'win ethic' that offers a take-it-or-leave-it approach to its serious points about enforcing precociousness on kids, but consistently delights with its panoramic comic invention.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
[Ritchie] keeps the sentimentality in check most of the time and obtains first-rate performers from his miniature cast all of the time.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
[Ritchie] directs scenes for comedy even in the face of his disturbing material and that makes the movie all the more effective; sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we can't, and the movie's working best when we're silent.Radio TimesMay 06, 2014
A small winner.ColeSmithey.comSeptember 08, 2012
[VIDEO ESSAY] Rife with every non-politically-correct social tic that '70s America had to offer, "The Bad News Bears" (1976) is a sports comedy that serves as a cultural benchmark.Film4August 03, 2008
If all kids' movies were like this, you wouldn't need to drag parents to the multiplexes.TV GuideMarch 14, 2007
This charming, funny film takes a gentle poke at Little League baseball and the American obsession with winning.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
Matthau's perfectly restrained, brilliantly comic performance holds it together.Lessons of DarknessJune 03, 2005
Remains the best film ever made about kids and sports.
