Cinecast #24: Bearly Watchable
Friday, 29 July 2005 01:00
Yeah,  we're just as bored as you are.

Despite his success with Jack Black in "School of Rock" and his obvious affection for Michael Ritchie's 1976 original, Richard Linklater seems surprisingly out of his element directing Billy Bob Thornton and a host of obnoxious kids in this "Bad News Bears" remake. For the director of Gen X classics such as "Slacker" and "Before Sunrise," "Bad News" is a rare misfire.

Also on the show, we unveil our Overlooked DVD Picks of the Week and count down our Top 5 Movie Antiheroes.
