| Enjoyable, but no improvement
The "Bad News Bears" remake serves its purpose but don't think that it's any improvement over the original. Thornton is excellent and some of the new additions (such as the crippled Matt Hooper) add some new elements to the movie. However, some of the best parts of the original are either toned down or left out, including the classic "Kelly Leak's one bad mother" scene (which is one area where the original script should have been followed 100%). The worst part of the movie in comparison with the 1976 version are the parts of Amanda Wurlitzer and Kelly Leak. These two characters are not performed nearly as well as in the original, especially the pivotal role of Amanda. However, the movie is still very enjoyable and worth seeing if you're a fan of the 1976 film.
