Movie Info

It's late in the season; the playoffs are fast approaching; and the Washington Sentinels have just gone on strike. Scrambling for a solution, the Sentinels' owner Edward O'Neil hatches a plan to bring in legendary coach Jimmy McGinty to recruit a team of replacement players in exactly one week. For fans and owners alike, the strike is a disaster. But for Shane Falco and a mismatched crew of outsiders, it is the second chance they've waited their whole lives for.

    Fun and innocent film, you can't fault a film that really doesn't attempt to be anything remotely serious. Keanu Reeves is good and Hackman is always a great backbone, pity the film didn't make more box office as this was a good film.

    The Bad News Bears take up football, become scabs and take on Keanu Reeves as a quarterback. Poor Gene Hackman must have really needed the money.

    One of the worst things I have ever had the misfortune of watching. Cliche writing, terrible acting, this movie gets very little right.

    Not so much a sports movie but rather a sports fantasy fried in buckets of greasy charm. Still watchable but only just.
