Does this mean that all other conceivable plots have not already been done? That there are absolutely no other possible themes worthy of commiting to film? That there is not one more original creative thought to be squeezed from the entertainment industry?
The Bears do indeed lose the championship game. However, they refuse to be good sports about it because the winning team, the Yankees, are led by the evil Vic Morrow who hits his own son on the playing field.
I don’t see why this film being remade is all that bad of an idea. The original was a fairly good movie. The sequels were bad.
Making a sequel to the Whole Nine Yards is another matter.
Was the Bad News Bears really that original? A team of lovable long-shots go on to win a championship. How played-out is that? Of course, as far as I know, this could have been the first one. But back to my point, that Bad News Bears has been remaid already: Little Giants, The Replacements, The Big Green, et cetera, et al.
