  • The mischief Thornton does make adds up to wild, rowdy fun. show more

  • In a blind taste test, I couldn't possibly have identified this as a Linklater movie, and he's a filmmaker I generally like. If anything, Bad News Bears shows that Linklater can get in and out of a movie like a cat burglar, without leaving his fingerprints anywhere. OK, he's proven it. He need never do that again. show more

  • The material is so solid and Thornton so tailor-made that the movie almost gets by. show more
